Barnes And Noble Book Fair
Ridgeline’s annual book fair at Barnes & Noble will take place on the evening of Friday, November 16th. Our class has decided to present an adaptation of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. We are scheduled to perform at 6:45. A percentage of all books bought that night, and for the next week, will go to Ridgeline. We will also have a wish list of books for the class if you would like to help us expand our library. We look forward to seeing you there.

Stone Soup 
Our big all school community event in November is the annual Stone Soup feast which takes place this year on Wednesday, November 21st (the day before Thanksgiving). Students are asked to bring vegetables on Tuesday November 20th, and they will slice them in the classrooms that day. On the 21st volunteers will make vegetable soup for the entire Ridgeline community to enjoy in the gymnasium.

Thank you,
Sarah, Emily, and Room 7
