Due to the generosity of the North Valley Community Fund and the Butte Strong Fund, Paradise Ridge Elementary School has partnered with the Rainforest Art Project in creating a nine-foot mosaic tile eagle that will be installed near the front entry of our school. All school families and staff members will be invited to help set the individual mosaic tiles in creating a treasure that the PRES community will enjoy for years to come.
In collaboration with the North State Food Bank and Mindful Littles, Paradise Ridge Elementary students packaged 48 cases of beans and rice, which will provide for over 10,000 meals for Butte County families. The PRES community appreciates the North State Food Bank and Mindful Littles for providing us with an opportunity to serve others.
Last week, rap artist Cactus Skidoo taught our fourth through sixth grade students the art of poetry rap. The students had two sessions with Cactus creating their rap and were able to perform their raps in front of their parents and peers on our school stage. Some students showed a great deal of courage overcoming their anxiety while taking the stage.

PRES wants to express our appreciation to Butte County Public Health staff and PRES parent volunteers for coordinating and facilitating yesterday's Sunrise Steps walking activity. Students had a great time walking with their peers, teachers, and parents as they were reminded of the importance of maintaining a healthy lifestyle through regular exercise. The students had a blast!

Butte County Public Health has planned an activity for the students at Paradise Ridge Elementary School called Sunrise Steps. On September 21st and 28th students will meet any time between 7:45-8:25 AM and participate in a healthy competition to see which class can walk the most laps before the first bell rings! Participating students will meet on the basketball courts. The class that has the most total laps for both days will win the “Golden Sneaker” trophy and a healthy snack party. Do you want to help get your child get more points? You can join them on their quest for laps, have them eat breakfast that morning, and dress them up in green and gold. We look forward to seeing you out there!

6th Graders from Paradise Ridge Elementary School surprise Joe from Izzy Burger with a quilt they made working with Joy Cunniff of the Ridge Quilters Guild. Students made each square and then Joy put them all together. Students listed a number of worthy recipients and voted to give this one to Joe. "Every morning he is always waving and making everyone smile." - Ben J.
