Classroom Happenings

It’s been another great work plan filled with math, science (learning about seasons!), history (archaeology!), and finishing the Independent Book Project.  Here are students hard at art, drawing their own shoes.

Jog-a-thon Pledges

Another great Jog-a-thon has come and gone.  Thanks to all the volunteers that helped set it all up and cheer us on!  And now it’s time to get the pledges in to help us keep our PE, music, art, and counseling programs strong and vibrant.  Please have pledges in by Monday October 15th.

Montessori Parent Education Night, Thursday, October 11 at 6:00

In this interactive workshop, families will learn about Dr. Montessori's Planes of Development. After a short presentation Dr. Casquejo Johnston, will facilitate a discussion/workshop.  Families will leave the workshop with an understanding of the planes of development, how they can support their children and practical strategies and supports to build a Montessori home.


You may have noticed that this year you are receiving a lot more communication regarding the importance of regular attendance.  This year we are beginning an attendance awareness campaign designed to increase awareness, educate, and ultimately improve student attendance at Ridgeline.  Good attendance is strongly linked to academic, social, and emotional success.

We believe that students and families that feel they are included in the school community are more likely to show up consistently

We believe that good attendance will allow your child to fully contribute to and fully benefit from the classroom community.  

We believe good attendance will not only build strong academics but also build strong socially and emotionally capable humans.

Thank you for learning and growing with us!
