RIDGECREST ROAR Feb. 28, 2021
Hello Ridgecrest families,
Thank you for attending our online conferences, we had a great turnout! The Ridgecrest Staff would like to thank the PTA for providing dinners both parent teacher conference nights. We felt so spoiled! This week, teachers will be working hard to prepare report cards. The district will be mailing student report cards to families starting on Friday.
Career Day: We are still in need of volunteers for Career Day!
This is what we still need:
- 1st Grade – One more presenter
- 2nd Grade – One more presenter
- 3rd Grade – Two presenters
- 4th Grade – One more presenter
- 5th Grade – None, We are covered
Please see the attached flyer with an active link for parents, grandparents, etc. to sign-up as a virtual presenter: https://forms.gle/aKAgJX6J49SeUXueA
This is what Career Day will look like:
- Date: Tuesday, March 9, 2021
- Time: 9:00AM-9:40AM
- A CSD Employee will create the ZOOM links and host the meetings with breakout rooms
- Teachers will be sent a link to the ZOOM Meeting through a calendar invite. They will need to login to the Meeting and project it to the class.
- Each grade will be in their own ZOOM session and listen to two (2) career speakers using breakout rooms
- Presenters only have the option to speak to one grade
- Presentations will be recorded and can be shared with additional grades if desired
School Counseling: Allie Teller (School Counselor) and Diana Aguilera Sanchez (School Social Worker) will be available for Parent Teacher Conferences; if you have a student who works with them and you would like to discuss their progress, please contact them to schedule an appointment: firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com or 801-826-9256
Allie and Diana will also be starting new social-emotional counseling groups in March – if you are interested in having your student receive support with school related social-emotional topics (emotional regulation, coping with worries, friendship support, social skills) please fill out this form: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSfwT9AAdGm-2A21L9aeAHV34cy8wcDgHkhW40aS6v4qYXdsLw/viewform.

We are excited to announce our Ridgecrest VIDEO TALENT SHOW!
