Jog-a-thon Volunteers and permission forms Still NEEDED: Our annual Jog-a-thon, scheduled for Friday, May 18, 10:30am -1:00 pm, will be held at the South Eugene High School track. Children will be transported on 4J buses and dismissed at 1:00 from the track. Students must have a signed permission form on file to leave school and participate in this event. Please return your student’s form as soon as possible.

We are still in need of 4 adult volunteers willing to supervise our students during the jog-a-thon. The volunteers will be responsible for a small group of children during the bus ride to the South Eugene track, throughout the jog-a-thon and until the students are dismissed. If you are willing to help with this, please let me know soon! 

Scholastic Book Orders: Book orders were sent home last week. This will be the last Scholastic book order of the year and your chance to order books for Summer reading. If you would like to order, please write your child’s name on the order form and send it in with payment (cash or check made out to Ridgeline) by Monday, May 14. 

May is Bike/Walk to school month: This month classrooms will track the number of students and teachers that bike or walk to school. Remind your student to record their bike/walk days. Even walking/biking part of the way to school countsJ 

Field trip to Science Factory: Our class will travel by LTD to the Science Factory on Thursday, May 24. We plan to leave school at 9:10 and return by 2:30. The cost per student is $3.75. Please complete the attached permission form and return it to the classroom, along with cash or a check (made out to Ridgeline). Scholarships are available. If the cost for this trip presents a hardship, please call the school office: 541-681-9662.

We still need adults to supervise students during this trip. Please let us know if you are able to join us. Call 541-681-9662, email or send a note.
