One World
This month, Ridgeline has a project display at the Eugene Public Library. Our class has works that include samples of the Chinese lanterns and Chinese calligraphy that the students created during our Lunar New Year celebrations. You will also see research posters including various animals and a study of the Titanic! We contributed a collaborative piece entitled One World. It is a project that stemmed from our continuing Peace Education studies. It also pays tribute to our recent learnings of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Check it out!

Indoor Shoe Reminder
As we continue into winter, it is especially important that students have a pair of indoor shoes for our classroom. Please check in with your child. Do the shoes still fit? Can he/she still find the pair? We would also still like to encourage rain shoes/boots for the playground. The campus field is extremely wet and muddy even as we have had some beautiful and sunny days.

Valentine's Day Celebration
The classmates of Room 1 will be celebrating this special day with a Valentine exchange. Please send Valentines to school on Tuesday, February 14th. Make sure to include a Valentine for everyone. No candy please. A class list will be distributed in Friday Folders.
