Biome Fashion Show Friday!

            Pack up those swim goggles (or ski poles, or sun hats) for our Biome Fashion Show.  Kids will walk the red carpet and show what to wear in the biome of their choice: ocean, wetland, desert, rainforest, mountain, polar regions, or grassland.  Students who would rather not participate can dress as usual for life in our biome, the temperate forest.

Scholastic Orders Due Friday

            Please visit Scholastic’s website at clubs2.scholastic.com to place your order.  Our classroom code is KPPLH.  Help our classroom library grow!  Special thanks to Kalei’s family for preparing the Scholastic catalogs this year.

Class Picnic Thursday, Sept. 24 6:00 – 7:00

            Join us for the class picnic!

Children and siblings are welcome.  Please plan on supervising your children, as there will be no staff supervision of the playground or outside areas.

Placemats and Shoes

            Just a reminder – each student should have a placemat or cloth napkin packed in his or her lunch box daily.  Please also double check that your child has a pair of indoor shoes.

Picture Day – Ridgeline’s annual picture day with Lifetouch is next Wednesday, September 23rd. Picture Package order forms were sent home last Friday. If you wish to order photos please do one of the following –
