SUPER IMPORTANT New State Testing Parent Meeting – Third grade parents, mark your calendars and plan to attend an IMPORTANT parent meeting this Thursday, March 19th, from 6:30 – 7:30 pm.
Sharon will give a brief presentation, and then I invite you to join me for a quick walk through of the 3rd grade test. 

There are big changes to state testing (grades 3-8) this year and we want to make sure you are informed.  The meeting is geared towards parents.  Students may attend the meeting and must remain with their parent, as childcare will not be provided.  


Science Fair Homework

We've come up with some amazing questions and done some background research.  Now, it’s time to plan the project and do an experiment.  On Monday, we'll go over these next steps.  Children will also bring home the next round of science fair homework.  For your convenience, I’ve also attached an electronic copy of the homework to this email.


Quiet Space Support/Tutor Needed:  We’re looking for volunteers who have time in the morning to support students working in a quiet space outside of the classroom.  Students may be working on individual work plans, on quiet partner work, or on group projects.  The volunteer would introduce herself or himself, ask the children what they’re working on, stay close by to help when needed, and help maintain an attitude of focus in the space. Please contact Cynthia if you’re interested!  cynthia.friedman@ridgeline.org
