SHARING (suggested theme) 1/7- A New Year’s resolution or goal

The Middle School class invited us to an all school Sing-a-long on Friday, Dec. 21. A group of students has been coming to our classroom to practice the songs we will sing. They play their ukuleles! Our kids so enjoy spending time with these older students.

GEOGRAPHY: There is so much to learn about the continent of Australia. We’ve learned about aboriginal art techniques and the meaning of symbols. Several students are researching fish and invertebrates of Australia. Next month we will explore the biomes of this amazing country. If you have objects or books that support this learning please consider sharing.

LOST & FOUND: Remember to look in the lost & found for your children’s lost items before winter break.

In January we will be unveiling our new electronic re-enrollment and lottery system. This is when we will be asking current families what their plans are for the next school year, and when siblings currently not attending Ridgeline can be entered into the lottery with sibling preference. Note, this is earlier than previous years in order to better align with 4J’s school choice timeline. Please start thinking about what your family’s plans are for the 2019-20 school year.

INFORMATION SESSIONS: Jan 12 (10-11 AM) and Jan 24 (6:30-7:30)

These hour-long meetings are for families interested in having their students attend Ridgeline. Information Session attendance is required in order for students to be included in lottery. If you have friends that may be interested please share this information with them.

Azusa and I wish all of you a wonderful holiday season and a Happy New Year!

See you in 2019!
