Dear Middle School Family,


As I write this letter, your children are dancing and hollering and having an all-around good time in the gym as the last Middle School sleepover of the year kicks off.  Fifteen years ago, when I was at the UO, earning my teaching credential, I never imagined that staying over night at school would be part of the deal.  (Or that I'd enjoy it!)  We've got some pretty terrific kids, and it is a true delight to see how much joy they get from each other's company.


We've spent the last week trying to wrap up our science fair projects for the UO Science Fair this Saturday.  We're almost there!  It looks like they're going to manage to pull it together in the eleventh hour.  If your child is participating in the Science Fair at the UO on Saturday, they need to be there to set up between 10 and 10:50 am.  The Science Fair officially opens from 11am-3pm. Details:


Next week is our Canopy Connections field trip.  Thank you Margeret Desser for completing our chaperone team.  Please have your student at school by 7:30am.  We will leave promptly at 7:45am.  We will be back at Ridgeline at 4:15pm.


Next week is also the Uke Jam at Cozmic Pizza.  The Ridgeline Uke Group will be performing at around 7pm.  Please come out for dinner and enjoy the music! 


We're pouring the concrete for the foundation of the Outdoor Classroom this weekend.  Construction proper will begin next weekend.  There are still lots of ways you can help build our Outdoor Classroom!  Every Saturday we're here from 10am-5pm.  It's pretty exciting to see things come together.


Have a great weekend,


Jon and Carrie
