Dear Parents,

Here are six more amazing calendar covers that have been uploaded to Google Documents:

NUGYRO Storyline

The travel phase of the NUGYRO journey is close to ending.  We are just a few days away from reaching our destination: Planet 3.  But, the most dangerous stretch is still ahead of us because we are going to surf the Colo “B” Comet.  Three brave astronauts volunteered to surf the comet in order to ask for help from the manager of Space Station VAN.

The manager eagerly agreed to send supplies and equipment back with them.  When they return, each space ship crew will take their chance surfing the comet for themselves.  Stay tuned to learn more about the final saga along the NUGYRO route…

New Work Plan Format

I am interested in hearing feedback about the new work plan, as well as insights into how the new information is helping reinforce what your child works on here at Ridgeline.  

This week, I will not be updated each work plan by hand.  Instead a printed work completion report will be sent home along with the work plan.  Each student will be asked to be the bridge between home and school in order to explain any differences that might exist between their work plan and my printed report.

The codes used on my printed report include:

Codes Used

x = completed on time

z = completed late

0 = no attempt made

e = exempted

blank = no record

WWS Words

1 = words chosen

2 = words studied

x = partner test taken

Joy of Sharing – Food Drive

Our annual food drive, the Joy of Sharing, begins December 14 and runs through December 18. 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.

Holiday Tree Sale

December 5-6 and 12-13
