APRIL NEWS : EARTH DAY

North Ridge will be celebrating by breaking ground on our Mesa `Build the Pond' project the week of April 4th. Remember to send in your donation of $1.00 or more to help fund the building of the pond. There will be several school wide activities going on that week.

I invite you to write a short poem about our Mesa so we can create a book of poetry that belongs to our school library.

** April is the month to celebrate National Poetry Month

** Earth Day will be Friday April 22.

** Please stop to take a look at the amazing 4th grade Mission Projects displayed in our library this month.
