The Star

Ruby Bridges - where the STARS come to shine!

Hello from the principal's desk!


It has been smoky over here these last two days! The district office has been keeping us informed on the air quality and we have had to cancel outside recess and PE all this week. What is happening up in Napa and Sonoma Counties is just terrible... terrible for all of the families who have lost so much. We have not organized any activities yet, but I do know that Encinal High School is collecting supplies and food in their main office up through Friday. Please take this opportunity to give help to some families in need!

The trait of the month is Compassion. Please talk to your kids about what this word means, and how important it is to have compassion for others in the world. We will be celebrating some students at the end of this month that show great compassion towards their classmates. Maybe you will get a "fridger" award!

Please also say THANKS if you visit the Speer Family Farms pumpkin patch out on the naval base. They donated 40 pumpkins to us that we gave out at last week's awards ceremony. They were super cool and were delighted to help us, so send them some love, would ya?

Check out the flyer below for our Grand Opening of our STEAM Studio. We are asking you to come and check out our space on Wednesday, October 25th from 1:20 - 3:00. Come see the work that the amazing Mandie Cline has done getting this room ready for prime time! You and your kids are going to love it!

With gratitude,

Jesse Woodward

Hello from the Ruby Bridges PTA

We are having our PTA Executive Board meeting tonight where we may decide to postpone our Fun-a-Thon due to the poor air quality. More news to come...
