Meridy's Update 1-11-19

posted Jan 11, 2019, 12:18 PM by Cynthia Friedman

Welcome Back Room 9!     We  had a smooth re-introduction to the classroom as we spent the week getting reacquainted and remembering what it is like to be in our community.  Graphs were the focus of the week. See how many types of graphs your student learned about and what they remember about them! On Wednesday our dear mascot Rot disappeared, so we finished off the week with a writing and building activity “How to Catch a Rot”                    

Intent to Return & Sibling Enrollment

It’s lottery season and we need to know your plans for the next school year.  Thursday morning you received an important “Intent to Return” email with links. Please read it thoroughly and complete the Intent to Return by January 18.  In order to qualify for sibling preference, you must complete the online enrollment application for any incoming sibling by January 31 (we encourage you to complete this as soon as possible).  Contact Jen Hackstadt if you did not receive the “Intent to Return” email.

Material Donations Requested

I found a fun way for students to create their own quilt blocks but we need material for this to happen!  Please send in an old t-shirt or pair of pants that you have in your donation pile or any other material you may have hanging around. (Maybe there is an old sewing project you aren’t interested in anymore?)

Shoe Drive Fundraiser

Ridgeline’s Shoe Drive Fundraiser is officially ON!  We are collecting shoes at school from now until February 15. There is a collection box in the school lobby. We also have collection boxes around town – Full Circle Fitness, Eugene Running Company, the Nike Running Store , Oakway Fitness, RunHub, and the UO Duck Store (campus).
