Sharing: 10/1-4: Something blue. 10/7-11: Something with a 3 syllable name 
Lunch: Lunch begins at 11:40. Parents are welcome! 

Scholastic book orders: Remember to return book orders by Monday, October 1. You can order from multiple clubs and write only one check. Please write your student’s name on the order form, cut out the form and include it with a check to “Scholastic Books”. 

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. 

Library Field Trip: Thursday, October 11, the class will go to the Eugene Public Library. We’ll ride LTD, leaving at 9:15 am, and enjoy a story and tour. We return to school at 11:45, just in time for lunch! Please print, complete and return the attached permission form. Or if a hard copy is needed, just let us know. 

Vision Screening:
All Ridgeline students will participate in vision screening on Friday, September 28. If you child wears glasses be sure they bring them to school. 

Art Class: The children are learning about weaving and other fiber art from local artist, Helen Liu. Helen is also a former parent at Ridgeline. Available projects include straw looms to make bracelets or belts, cardboard looms for placemats or wall hangings and larger group loom projects. We are also learning to embroider with yarn and plastic mesh shapes, thanks to Beth Scott (Abby’s mom). 

Upcoming Events:
Friday, 9/28 Vision Screening
Thursday, 10/11 Library Field Trip

Field Trip to the Eugene Library 
On Thursday, October 11, Cheri’s students will visit the Eugene Public Library. We will leave school at 9:15 and ride the LTD bus to the downtown station. The library is right across the street. After our library tour and story we’ll have some time to browse the children’s library before boarding our return bus. We plan to return by 11:45, just in time for lunch and recess. As always, parents are welcome. Just let me know if you would like to join us. There is no charge for this field trip. Please complete and return the enclosed form. Thanks, Cheri
