Hello Room 10 families!
I hope you all had a lovely break. Now January is here and we are back in the swing of it. We hit the ground running by following up with a math assessment we took in the fall. All students showed tremendous improvement. Winter benchmarks will begin next week. Please make sure your kiddo arrives at school well rested and ready to go so we can show all the growth that they have made so far.
We also wrapped up our book clubs this week. Students spent time on their book reports through a “TGI-Fiction Menu” and created some delicious work! Next week we will begin new stories with new groups.
We also heard from Kate this week with updated information about the talent show. Here’s a summary of what she had to say.
“Friday, February 3, 223 @ 6 PM is the Ridgeline Talent Show! This year, the talent show will be a hybrid model. We are still asking students to submit a video clip of their talent to firstname.lastname@example.org, but we are thankful to have the opportunity to come together on February 3rd in the school Gym to watch the video together on a big screen!
Talent Show Acts must be 3 minutes or less. Any musical lyrics must be school appropriate. Please avoid themes of violence, drugs/alcohol, sex, etc. Kids are welcome to provide a solo act and/or a group act.
If your child is interested in being a classroom MC and introducing their peers, please email email@example.com. We will accept the first 2 applicants from each class on a first-come-first-picked basis. Parents will be emailed a script for their MC to read/recite on video a few days before the talent show and those videos will play before the class performances. MCs may also submit a talent act, but do not have to submit an act for the talent show.
We will have volunteer opportunities for the evening of the talent show, so please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to help.”
We also heard from the office that they are in DESPERATE need for extra clothing in the office. If you have anything to spare, please feel free to send it in. Here is the official request:
“Ridgeline students spend time outdoors, rain or shine, and that means we sometimes need to lend them clean clothes when theirs get soiled!
We are in need of:
rain pants in all sizes, youth size 5 through adult small/medium
versatile pants (especially leggings and athletic pants in gender neutral colors) in all sizes, youth size 5 through adult small/medium.
Your clean clothing donations, brought to the office, are appreciated!
It is important to us that students are comfortable in clean, dry clothing while they are learning, and we are happy to loan clothing to students whenever necessary. Please return laundered borrowed school clothes as soon as possible.”
Next week will be a short week as we take Monday off to observe Martin Luther King Jr. Day. I look forward to seeing everyone back and ready to roll on Tuesday. Have a lovely weekend and as always thank you for supporting your learner!
