Book Fair

Our annual book fair at Barnes and Noble is tomorrow (Friday, November 17)!  Please join us at the Barnes and Noble Book Fair to purchase holiday gifts, watch classroom performances, and enjoy a fun evening together. A percentage of the book fair purchases at Barnes & Noble will go to Ridgeline. This includes friends’ and family purchases at stores around the country! Just give them the book fair ID number 12212015. All purchases need to be made November 17-22. You must tell the cashier you are with our book fair and give the ID number for it to count toward the book fair. Online purchases do count, although the percentage back to Ridgeline is much less.

Thanksgiving Week Curriculum Focus

During the Thanksgiving week, school is still in session on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday, giving us the chance to focus heavily on Calendar Research Projects and 3 Islands work.

For Calendar Projects some students started typing their formal drafts this week, with the hope to have them completed during Thanksgiving week. For others that are still working on revisions (4th Years) or outlining (5th and 6th Years) it is important that you are ready to start typing next week.

Stone Soup Plans

Ridgeline’s long standing tradition of Stone Soup is Wednesday, November 22. Students bring vegetables to school on Tuesday and slice them in the classrooms for the communal soups that our amazing volunteers cook outside the gym the next day.

Our class will be slicing veggies on Tuesday, November 21 between 10-11am in Room 11. Thanks to Ami, Ethan, Andi, Sarah Stanley for volunteering to work with our class.

On Wednesday, November 22, an assembly starts at 12:00pm. Students are asked to bring $2 for the assembly and a bowl and spoon from home if they can.

Our class will eat soup line at around 1:20pm.

Creative Expressions

Our last Creative Expression session will be tomorrow (Friday, November 17) and we will put the finishing touches on the array of products for the Ridgeline Student Marketplace on Saturday, December 2. In order to sell the items, we need students and parents to staff the table. Please contact our room parent Shannon ( if you and/or your child is available to help.
