Happy New Year! It’s great to have the kids back and see how excited they are to drop back into learning. We spent the first few days back just enjoying each other: playing games, doing Vision boards, learning the Fibonacci Sequence with Jonathan.
We have a lot of exciting things happening this term including our new Friday electives that we are offering. Students are intermingling with the other cohorts in a choice activity: Chess, Dungeons and Dragons, Newspaper, Watercolor Art and Outdoor Club. It’s been really nice interacting with the other classes.
We started studying Early Humans and we will be moving pretty fast through Ancient Cultures as we prepare for Jonanthan to take over the cultural curriculum of the class in February. Our amazing assistant is in the final semester of earning his teaching credentials and I am excited to help usher in the next steps of his educational career.
Friday, February 10, 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 email@example.com, but we are thankful to have the opportunity to come together on February 10 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 firstname.lastname@example.org. 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 email@example.com if you would like to help.
