Cheri's Weekly Update 9-13-13

posted Sep 16, 2013, 10:16 AM by Cynthia Friedman

Dear Ridgeline Families,


Welcome to our 2013-14 school year.


Arrival/Dismissal: This year children can enter the classrooms at 8:25. To avoid a tardy mark, children must be in the classroom by 8:40.


Sharing: “Sharing” offers your student an opportunity to build self-confidence and communication skills. For this reason, I suggest a weekly theme so that parents can help their student think of 3 things to tell about their chosen topic. This week’s sharing theme is  “a favorite plant or flower”. It would be wonderful if your child brings a small plant that can be cared for in the classroom.

 Next week: Something that begins with ‘b’ or ‘d’.

A Sharing schedule and Weekly Schedule are attached. If you would like hard copies, email, phone (541-681-9662) or send a note and I’ll be sure you receive them.


Lunch: Lunch begins at 11:40. Parents are welcome!



Inside Shoes: Please be sure your child has a pair of inside shoes. Much of the ‘work’ in our classroom involves hands-on materials used on the rug. Inside shoes keep our classroom cleaner and quieter.


Cheri’s Class Family Picnic: Please join us next Thursday, September 19, 5:00-6:15, for a casual get-together on the grass behind our classroom. Bring a picnic dinner and enjoy getting acquainted (or reacquainted) with our students and their families.  Check out the classroom and the wonderful playground. Meet our new teacher-intern, Yifan, from China.

See you there!
