Mail Call!

We are continuing to collect the address sheets that were sent home during conferences. Thank you for working with your child to complete and return the form. We will mail our first letter next Friday so keep the addresses coming!

Speaking of mail….
We are going to need lots of stamps! If you are able to contribute a book of stamps for the classroom, please send them in.

Animals and birds and bats… oh my!
Next Friday, November 18th, our class will be performing a skit during the book fair at Barnes & Noble. The skit is based off a book entitled The Great Ball Game, which is an interpretation of a Native American folktale about a disagreement between those with teeth (the mammals) and those with wings (the birds). Where does the little bat fit in? Find out at the book fair. It starts at 6:00 and our class performs at 6:15. Hope to see you there!!

Let the reading begin!
November 18th is also the kickoff to Ridgeline’s first annual Readathon. Pledge forms will be sent home on that Friday and the event will continue through winter break.
