Need a Burrito? - Laughing Planet on 29th and Willamette is once again hosting Ridgeline Montessori for our first proceed fundraising day of the year on Tuesday, September 26th from 11am - 9pm. 15% of ALL SALES goes to Ridgeline.  You do not need a flyer, just come on by and enjoy great food with other Ridgeline families.  Ridgeline has set records for sales at this location during these donation days, and we want to see us do it again!! 

 

Please note - T.R.U.E. will be gracing the airwaves outside the restaurant, so bring out the entire family to get a first-hand taste of our amazing ukulele group!

 

Box Tops - See the power of Box Tops in your community and help your school start the school year off on the right foot by participating in the first-ever National Box Tops for Education Week. Help earn cash for our school September 24-30.  Last year Ridgeline box top collections earned over $700. Have the kids look through the cupboards and find box tops to clip and send them to school with your kids.  The collection box is next to the office.  Thank you.

 

Jog-a-thon is next week!  Get those pledges and sign up to volunteer!

Pledges:  all students should have received a pledge packet by now. Take advantage of this weekend and help your students ask neighbors, friends, grandparents, aunts and uncles, and anyone else you can think of to pledge! No amount is too little (or too much!). 

Volunteer:  this is a big event and we need your help! It's Friday morning, September 29 and there are lots of different tasks, ranging from an hour or two, to all morning. Sign up here:  http://signup.com/go/ZJfxDEF

 

 

Background Checks – Just a reminder that you must have a cleared background check to chaperone on field trips, help with PE, read to students in the classroom, and volunteer for the Jog-a-thon. Please stop by the office with your driver’s license to fill out a short background check form. Jog-a-thon volunteers who need to have a background check done before the 29th must fill out a form ASAP in order to be cleared in time for the event.  Cynthia will email once your background check has been completed.

 

Important Message to All Volunteers - Dear volunteers and classroom visitors:

When you are working in the presence of children, please leave your political and religious views at the door. Ridgeline is a public school. We honor kids' feelings and questions about current events as they arise, especially the more disturbing events they may have witnessed recently.  We trust Ridgeline educators to help kids develop awareness and understanding of the world, history, and culture in developmentally appropriate, non-sectarian ways.  We leave it to families to help their children find or create meaning and to choose beliefs. Please allow our kiddos this freedom from adult religious and political viewpoints.   Please contact Principal Sharon if you have any questions.

 

Did you see our fundraising e-newsletter? Ridgeline’s annual fundraising is underway! All year, we raise money in a lot of different ways to supplement our limited public funding. Our goal this year is to raise $400 per student to cover “extras” like PE, art, and counseling, to help maintain and improve our building, and to get our students and staff some new computers! Getting to that $400 per student number is going to take all of us and a lot of work, but we’ve done it before—in fact, this is the same level of fundraising we’ve been doing for the last 3 years! Your direct donations, our school fundraisers, restaurant nights, eScrip…it all counts toward our goal! If you didn’t see our email this week (some people said it landed in their Promos folder), you can check out the why, what and how of Ridgeline fundraising at: http://mailchi.mp/69ca1a6a1593/supportridgelinemontessori2017-1082893

 

Upcoming and ongoing fundraising opportunities—Jog-a-thon on September 29th (donate! volunteer!), set up a monthly donation at ridgeline.org, and enjoy a meal at Laughing Planet on September 26th!

 

Site Council Parent Rep Position Clarification -  RCO would like to make a correction to the previous eNews. We stated that Michelle Lodwig would be filling this position but we need to clarify that Michelle will be applying for the position, as it is open to all parents. If there is more than one candidate we will have an election. Contact Cynthia in the office if you have questions. The application is attached to the eNews today. Applications are due Wednesday, September 27. Candidates will read their statement at the next RCO meeting on Tuesday, October 4th and a general election will follow.

 

For those that aren't familiar, the Site Council’s mission statement is: “We are a governing body serving the Ridgeline community as a forum dedicated to all avenues of school improvement.” Parent reps serve for 3 years—attending both the monthly Site Council and RCO meetings.  Each year they work on several projects including the Parent Survey, annual calendar, and the School Improvement Plan (SIP).

Site Council Parent Representative - As some of you may already know, the Jameson family moved to Texas to begin a new adventure. Though the Ridgeline community will miss them tremendously, we wish them the greatest future ahead.

Valerie Jameson served as our parent representative for our Site Council. Her departure left The Ridgeline Community Organization (RCO) with the need to fill this spot, in hopes of having a new representative step in quickly before the first site council meeting of the 2017-18 school year. We were incredibly fortunate to have the amazing Michelle Lodwig graciously volunteer to fill this position!

ONGOING VOLUNTEER NEEDS -

Room Parents – Last spring we put a shout out in the eNews looking for room parents for each classroom.

Parent Representatives will build community with families based on the interests of the volunteer and needs of the classroom. Opportunities will include helping with room events like field trips, projects such as the coordination of the bowls for pasta dinner, teacher appreciation projects, classroom community-building activities, reminding families of upcoming classroom and school events, and answering questions pertaining to each individual classroom.

This position will be developed based on individual classroom and teacher needs but will require volunteers to be innovative, creative, enthusiastic and willing to actively promote the mission and vision of Ridgeline Montessori.
