Sharon's Weekly Update 5-9-17

Hello, Room 9 families!

Testing is underway. For the next several weeks, your student will be testing at 1pm for as long as it takes to finish the test. PLEASE make sure that your student is getting adequate sleep and brings a hearty lunch. Many students finish the test by Wednesday of each week, though it is not abnormal for students to take all week to finish the test. Our testing is not timed, so students may take as long as they need.

PORTFOLIO WORK is looking great! Most students are working hard and are staying caught up on their portfolio work. I appreciate the support that students are receiving at home to complete their portfolio without adult intervention.

We need DRIVER CHAPERONES for an upcoming field trip to Aprovecho Experimental Farm! This field trip is scheduled for Friday, May 26, and we need enough cars to get everyone to Cottage Grove. Gas money will be provided. If you can help, please email me and include the number of student seat belts you have in your vehicle. We will leave Ridgeline around 9 am and will return for early dismissal at 1:15.

This month is BIKE AND WALK TO SCHOOL month! Students who participate are entered into a raffle to win prizes. You may walk from Crossfire and it still counts!

JOG-A-THON packets have gone home. Please help your student set up any pledges. The Jog-A-Thon takes place next Friday, May 19.

We DO have school this Friday, May 12, to make up for hazardous weather days back in January! There is NO SCHOOL on Monday, May 29, for Memorial Day.
