Hellos and Goodbyes
We are bidding a fond farewell to Shannon, whose family moved to the Big Island of Hawaii over winter break. They are excited for the new opportunities but sad to leave Ridgeline friends at such short notice. Aloha and good luck!
Now we are looking forward to welcoming a new student. Lucy Friese will be joining us as a second grader. Lucy is ready for Ridgeline; her sister, Freya, is a kinder here. Lucy’s first day is Monday. We can’t wait!
One final goodbye – sadly, Jaoing’s last day as our Chinese intern was Thursday. We wish her “sin nian kuai le” (Happy New Year) as she returns to Taiwan.

We will be visiting the planetarium at the Science Factory on January 31. We’ll travel by yellow bus. In the planetarium, we’ll learn about constellations and the stories behind them. Volunteers are needed for the trip. If you can join us to chaperone from 9:30 to 12:00, please let me know.
