Dear Families of our fabulous fourth, fifth and sixth years,


Here’s this week’s news:


Stone Soup:  Each year, Ridgeline hosts a special Stone Soup celebration.  This tradition involves students in the soup preparation, with students in each class bringing in vegetables and cleaning, peeling and chopping them.  Those ingredients are then assembled by our talented group of parent chefs into several different types of delicious soups.  This year our Stone Soup celebration will take place on November 22ndIn order to prepare for this event, please send your vegetable donation with your child to school on Monday or Tuesday.  Any vegetable that could be added to soup is welcome:  onions, garlic, carrots, celery, broccoli, potatoes, cauliflower, herbs, spinach (no mushrooms due to a severe allergy)... also canned tomatoes, beans, pasta...


Barnes and Noble Book Fair:  This Friday, November 15th, please join us at Barnes and Noble for our annual Book Fair.  The student presentations begin at 6 pm and our class will be performing some fun poetry skits around 7:00.  Plan to have a good time and maybe even do some holiday shopping while you support Ridgeline!


Calendars:  We are starting final drafts on Monday!  You may see a large pink or green folder coming home with your child in the next few weeks.  In this folder you should see some blank and/or completed calendar pages.  Students have work time set aside for calendars at school, but some students choose to take them home as well so they can spend some extra time.  If you see one come home, please be sure those get back to school with all their parts and pieces the next day.  


Upcoming Events: 

11/15- Barnes and Noble Book Fair 6-8 pm

11/16- Outdoor classroom work party (we’ll be putting on the roof!)

11/25-11/29- No school, Thanksgiving holiday and budget reduction days


Thank you for sharing your wonderful children with us!  Please feel free to contact us with any questions, comments or concerns.


Dana and Naomi
