Dear Middle School Family,

This is an exciting year of change and growth for Ridgeline's middle school program. It's been a challenge for all of us, families, students, and teachers, alike, to get used to the Big.

One of the best, shiniest things about our growth is the increased diversity of perspectives, personalities, and opportunities that a larger group provides for each other.

Stone Soup is next week. This is what got me thinking about what a rich mix we are. The Stone in the story is a call for Community, an impetus for Action. Ridgeline is the Story. Our classrooms are the various pots of water. I am just a stone. What each student brings to our classroom every day is what enriches the soup.

Every day is an adventure in the middle school. Your children make this a Joyful and Nourishing place to work and grow together.

Thank you for sharing your child with us,

Jon
