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. Dismissal for all students is 3:15.

Cheri’s Class Family Picnic: Thank you to families that attended our get together in spite of the rain!! If you are able to help with volunteer needs (laundry, water-cup washing, water dispenser bottle refilling, classroom volunteers, etc), please let me know. We especially need help with Art Class for our students on Thursday afternoons.

Please be sure we have accurate/updated contact information for your family.

Questions? Email or call 541.681.9662 and leave a message.

SHARING: Sharing offers your student an opportunity to build self-confidence and communication skills. It also allows children to teach others. For this reason, I suggest a weekly theme so that parents can help their student think of 3 facts to tell about their chosen topic.

Sharing Themes: Sept. 21- Object with a 3 syllable name or a plant, Sept.28- A sign of Autumn

LUNCH: Lunch begins at 11:40. Parents are welcome to join us!

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 help to keep our classroom cleaner and quieter.

A Sharing List and weekly calendar are attached. Please let me know if you would like hard copies of these documents and I will send them home with your child.

Picture Day: Ridgeline’s annual picture day with Lifetouch is next Wednesday, September 23rd. Picture Package order forms were sent home last Friday. If you wish to order photos please do one of the following –

§ Send your completed order form and payment with your student on picture day. Order forms will be handed in to teachers, not the office.

§ You may also order pictures online at Ridgeline’s picture day ID is: LO535174Y0. If you order online prior to picture day, print out your order and send it to school with your student.

§ You may also order pictures online up to two days after picture day.

§ If your student is absent for picture day, or you do not like the photos, re-takes will be available on Wednesday, October 28th.
