SHARING Theme: Week of 12/5- A sign of Winter

JOY OF SHARING BASKETS Our annual food drive, the Joy of Sharing, begins December 12 and runs through December 16. Please bring non-perishable donations to school during this week. In addition to food, other items such as toilet paper and personal hygiene items are welcome. With the donated items, we will create and distribute food baskets to Ridgeline families in need, to help them over winter break. Please contact Kayla if you have questions.

BAKING BREAD IN THE CLASSROOM: Next week we’ll begin bread baking in the classroom using a bread machine. We’ll start first thing in the morning so children can enjoy a slice of warm bread with their morning snack. If you have questions or would like to donate ingredients, please contact us through email, send a note or call the office 541-681-9662.

PANTRY: Thanks for helping to keep the pantry stocked with healthy snacks and lunch items.

NEW LAUNDRY BAG: Thanks to Karna Robbins, Lucanne’s mom, we have a beautiful new laundry bag! And thank you to the families that faithfully wash and dry the classroom cloths we send home every Friday.

SCHOLASTIC BOOK ORDERS: Scholastic Book Order forms were sent home Friday. Remember, the holidays are fast approaching and books always make great gifts. Please review the choices and submit your order forms either with a check made to Ridgeline or (preferably) order online! Ordering online is quick and easy. When your books are delivered to school, we’ll send them right home with your student. Order online by visiting this link: (Our class code is DXTXN). Feel free to order from any book club on the Scholastic site.

If you choose to return order forms to school, please write your student’s name on each form, cut out the forms and include them with a check to “Scholastic Books” or cash is okay too. Please return order forms and payment to school by Wednesday, December 7, to allow enough time to receive books before Winter Break.

Questions? Email, send a note or call the office 541-681-9662 Our students have the opportunity to use this free online program for practicing math facts at school or at home. We included a flier in the student homework folders with details for accessing Xtramath from home. If you have questions send an email, note or call the office (541) 681-9662.
THIRD GRADE GIRLS BASKETBALL: A Kidsports 3rd grade girls basketball team is forming. Please contact Randy Schindler for more information. Deadline for registration in this Monday, December 5.

Thanks for sharing your awesome children….Cheri & Azusa
