Watermelons Needed: We are in desperate need of watermelons for field day on June 5! Drop one by the office anytime between now and Tuesday morning—the sooner, the better! 

Sharing theme: Your Choice 

Chapala’s Trip: We are planning our annual trip to Chapala’s Mexican restaurant for Monday, June 11. We’ll leave school at 10:35 and walk to Chapala’s early to avoid the lunch rush. Lunch choices include a burrito (chicken+cheese or bean+cheese) or a quesadilla (chicken+cheese or cheese only). Orders include refried beans and Mexican rice. Vegetarian choices are also available. The charge for each lunch is $5.00. If the cost presents a hardship and you would like scholarship information, please call the office 541-681-9662. Families are welcome to join us for this outing.

Complete the attached permission form, include cash or check (to Ridgeline) and return as soon as possible. Questions? Call 541-681-9662, e-mail or send note. 

Teacher Interns looking for homestay families: Every year for the past 6 years, our school has sponsored a college student from China or Japan. These students are in their third year preparing to be teachers and have been accepted into the University of Oregon’s exchange program, CASLS (Center for Applied Second Language Studies). They spend a year here in Eugene attending classes and working in local schools. The student-interns at Ridgeline work full time in the classroom from September through January or from February through June. These students have been taking classes in English since elementary school and are quite independent. They use public transportation and often travel during the school breaks. Host families are asked to provide a bedroom, conversation and inclusion in some family activities. In return families enjoy the friendship and experience of knowing a person from another culture. There is also a monthly stipend paid to the home stay families. Please let me know if you may be interested in hosting one of these delightful students and I will give you more information. 

HOMEWORK: Please return Homework Packets. I appreciate your support of our homework program this year. Encourage your students to practice reading, writing and math during Summer Break. E-mail or send a note if you would like suggestions.
