We would like to spotlight our Primary School students’ accomplishments in the EAGLET. If you have something to share about your child’s activities outside of school, please send them in writing or email to the teacher, and we will publish them.

Thanks to all for sending in your Box Tops. Our first submission date is approaching. If you are interested in helping with Box Tops (clipping and packaging) please let your child’s teacher know and we will be in touch.

On Monday, October 10, we will kick off the first of 2 Primary School fundraising programs that we have chosen to participate in during this school year. Both programs have been carefully chosen over the past several years and are causes that we feel are exceptional opportunities for our students to turn the focus outside of themselves and work for the benefit of others.
The first will be the St Jude MATH-A-THON, an education-based fundraiser to benefit St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. This program involves students in grades K-4, although we will accept monetary donations from our PreK parents! Over the past 13 years, we have donated over $32,000 to St. Jude Children’s Hospital! Detailed information will be sent home on Oct. 10. Please look over it carefully and encourage your child to participate.

The second fundraiser will be held in March and is the Leukemia Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) Pasta for Pennies. PreK – 4th grade will participate in this spring event.

Don’t forget your Celebration Book orders. The Ridgewood Library wants to celebrate your child and encourage a love of reading!
