SHARING THEME: (week of 5/20) A joke or comic strip, (week of 5/27) A Favorite Book


Amazon Walk: Wow! What an amazing job our kiddos did collecting donations and walking 2 miles on the Amazon path across from the school. So far Ridgeline families have raised $5,582. You can still return collection envelopes with donations. Thank you for your efforts on behalf of our P.E. and Music programs.


VOLUNTEERS FOR NEXT YEAR: I’m searching for one or two artistically inclined volunteers to help teach weekly art classes during the 2013-14 school year. I’m happy to provide curriculum guidance, materials and management support. I’m also hoping to find a volunteer willing to come in once or twice a week to teach Spanish to our students. We have many classroom materials to complement a Spanish program. If you are interested or have questions about either of these opportunities, please let me know.


HOMEWORK: Please return all homework packets this Friday, May 24. This will end our ‘Homework Program’ for the year. I will collect the homework packets and keep them until next September. Please encourage your student to practice reading, writing and math throughout the summer. If you would like suggestions for materials or topics, let me know.

This year’s homework participation has been close to 100%. Thanks so much for your support!


PROJECT FAIR: What an interesting variety of projects this year! Thank you for supporting this event and for sharing information about such appealing topics.


YOU’RE INVITED!! OPEN HOUSE AT THE FARM: Shannon and Chris Overbaugh (Alden’s parents) invite you to join them for ‘Farm Day’ at Wintergreen Farm. There will be a potluck lunch, hay rides to see the fields and animals, children’s activities, and a live bluegrass band. This free event is scheduled for June 8 from 12-4 pm.

 To get to the farm head out Hwy 126 West, towards Veneta.  Continue about 5 more miles then make a right onto Poodle Creek Rd. The farm is about 2 miles up Poodle creek Rd on the left hand side. Look for our sign. If anyone has questions, call the farm at 541-935-1920 or email folks@wintergreenfarm.
