HEALTH NOTICES:


Correction to last week’s district email regarding travel:  The family member who travels is the one who needs to quarantine; not the whole family.

Family Travel: However, if your family travelled anywhere over the holidays other than New York, Pennsylvania, Connecticut, or Delaware, please remember you need to quarantine for 14 days from your return to New Jersey before returning to school.  (E.G. if you return to Ridgewood on a Sunday, Day 1 of your quarantine is Monday).   Please let Mrs. Manke know so we can mark you as quarantining. Thank you for cooperating with this important health directive.



HSA Announcements


NEW TIC TOC ART AT HOME VIDEO SERIES:

Check out our new art docent video on Mary Cassatt, a famous American painter and printmaker. We explore her beautiful works of art in which she elevates the relationship between mothers and children. There is also a fun impressionist art project at the end for kids to do.  https://youtu.be/c_g_QmdudkE
We would love for Ridge parents to participate in creating these videos in an effort to further art education for our kids. If interested, please reach out to Tasneem Patrawala.

TIC TOC is also sponsoring an Art Contest for all FIFTH GRADERS…..see flyer here for details   Fifth Grade Art Contest.pdf
