Field Trip

On Wednesday, February 15th, we will be travelling to Kalapuya High School to tour their botany program and greenhouse.  We will leave our campus at 8:45 and travel by school bus to their site.  There we will tour their greenhouse growing native plants and a local farm and orchard.  We will also have an opportunity to get our hands dirty and plant our own native plants.  Afterwards, we will have a health lesson and sample some of the food they have grown.  We will return to our campus by noon.  We will not be needing drivers for our trip, but we will need at least 3 parents to come with us as chaperones.  Please let us know if you are able to help out with this trip.

History Research and Projects

Next week we will be starting our history research and projects for the Project Fair in April.  This work will be ongoing for the next couple of months, so please engage your student in conversation about their interests and plans for projects.  They will have an opportunity to study many different topics, so help them to think "broadly".  

Re-enrollment Forms

Bright green re-enrollment forms have been sent home today. Please ask the youngest child in your household for this form. You must fill it out and return it to the office by Friday, February 10th, in order to secure your child’s spot for the 2017-18 school year. If you have a sibling of a current Ridgeline student, who you wish to enroll for next year, please include their name on this form as well.
