Our Shape and Say story is “The Powder Puff Picnic.”

The children are getting excited about the holidays. We hope you can participate in our schools activites:

HOLIDAY TREES!!!!!!! All proceeds go to the general fund at Ridgeline. Trees for sale/pick up will be available on December 8th and 15th at the school. 

Noble Fir trees will be available for U-Cut at 84850 S. Ridgeway Rd., Pleasant Hill, OR 97455 (Hwy 58 East, then turn R just before Dairy Queen in Pleasant Hill where signs will be posted). Bring your saw. Trees will be priced per foot (15.00 for 4 foot tree, then add 5.00 per foot). We are receiving 50% of the proceeds from the U-Cut. U-cuts are held Sundays, December 2, 9, 16th from 11-4 pm. 

PLEASE SPREAD THE WORD TO FAMILY AND FRIENDS TO BUY HOLIDAY TREES DURING THESE EVENTS, IN SUPPORT OF RIDGELINE MONTESSORI PUBLIC CHARTER SCHOOL.

Joy of Sharing Food Drive Kicks-off December 14 at the Talent/Un-Talent Show! 

Our Annual Joy of Sharing Food Drive kicks-off December 14, at the Talent/Un-Talent Show. We will be collecting non-perishable food items to put in baskets for Ridgeline families to help out over winter break.   

A message from Chrystell:

Confidential Family Income Survey

Last year, 39% of Ridgeline students qualified for free or reduced lunch. Based on the few forms that have been turned in this year, it appears that only 22% of Ridgeline students qualify for free or reduced lunch. I am confident that this percentage is much higher but we need families to complete the survey to verify this information!

If we serve more than 41% of students who qualify for free or reduced lunch, Ridgeline may qualify for additional Title I funding! Please complete and return the Confidential Family Income Survey (attached to the eNews or available at the office) so we can accurately report the socio-economic demographic of our student population. The summary information provides valuable data to be included on grant applications, capital campaign publications and is shared with other charter schools and our sponsoring district. Individual family information is strictly confidential. Please contact Chrystell Reed or Amy Genz if you have any questions.
