Dear Ridgeline Families,
The staff so enjoyed Marta’s staff presentation and I hear the parent program was well attended and appreciated by Ridgeline Parents. Thanks to those families able to brave the rainy weather and gather for our class picnic on Thursday. I asked attendees to verify personal and contact information as well as sign up for a myriad of volunteer jobs…from Laundry Fairy, Music/Art and Gardening helpers, classroom volunteers, Friday afternoon classroom cleanings and/or rug shampooing and lawn mowing. We also need volunteers willing to do work at home (cutting laminate, creating posters, art projects, etc.) If you didn’t get a chance to sign up and would like to, just let me know and I’ll add you to a list. 

The Ridgeline Rising Silent Auction and Block Party: 
This event is scheduled for October 11th. Lots of fantastic activities are planned including a silent auction featuring a collection of themed baskets created by Ridgeline classrooms. Our classroom’s theme is “Duck Green” and families are invited to contribute related items valued at $10 or less OR donate $10 cash (to be used by volunteers to purchase items for the basket). We already have several items piled up in our basket and several families have sent in cash to help buy more Duck stuff! Our classroom basket organizer is Cheryle Myers (Sierra’s mom). You can contact Cheryle at 541-683-7213 (call or text) or email her: 

PETER AND THE WOLF ELEMENTARY YOUTH CONCERT: Again this year, the Eugene Symphony is sponsoring a special concert for students. The concert will feature several well-known pieces by famous composers including Tchaikovsky’s Flight of the Bumblebee and Prokofiev’s Peter and the Wolf. On Tuesday, October 14, our class will ride LTD to the downtown bus station and walk to the Hult Center. Admission is $5.00 per student. We plan to leave school at 8:50AM and return by noon. Please complete the attached permission form and return it with cash or a check to Ridgeline. Questions? Email, send a note or call the office 541-681-9662
