RIDGECREST ROAR       May 17, 2020


Good evening Ridgecrest families,


I want to share with you the schedule for the last two weeks of school. This week will be a review week for the students and teachers will be doing some fun activities with their classes to have closure to the year.  Friday will be the last day students need to login to their Chrome books.


Next week we will have Chrome book drop off on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 8:00 am – 3:00 pm.  You will simply need to drive up, roll down the window, place the Chrome book into a plastic tub and drive off.  If you have a library book it can be placed in the same tub.  Please remember your charging cord. Some families have asked if they could keep the Chrome book over the summer. I am sorry we are not able to accommodate this request.  The district has thousands of Chrome books checked out and we need to update them, repair them if necessary, clean them, and get them ready to check out in the fall if needed.  Please help us by returning your Chrome book during one of the three days, which are May 26th, 27th, and 28th.  If you can’t make one of those days, please call the office and we will make other arrangements.  80-1826-9250


Our school picture company, Eastman Adams is offering Memory books again this year.  The orders are due by next Friday, May 22nd.  The school does not receive funds from the purchase of the books and the memory books will be sent straight from the company.  Ridgecrest will not be involved in this process at all. It will all be done online. If you want to purchase a memory book please see this flyer. See attached.

This parenting flyer was sent out through Peach Jar earlier in the week but I wanted to send it to those who don’t check Peach Jar.  Canyons School District is offering a few support groups for parents during this pandemic.  If you are interested, please read this flyer.  See attached.

The 5th grade will have their send off this Friday.  We will be doing a drive through parade for them.  We hope to see all the 5th graders.  5th grade teachers are sending out the details to the 5th grade students.  Congratulations 5th graders, you did it!  We are proud of you and we will miss you!

Reflections Art Contest will resume this fall 2020. Start this summer while the kids are home! Students reflect on the theme:

Just try! Every entry receives recognition! 



Huge shout out to all of you amazing volunteers, parents, grandparents and those who love our Ridgecrest students. We can’t tell you how much the PTA appreciates all of the time, supplies, and support, big and small, you donated to all the PTA events.  Your support  for our students and school makes a huge difference. Being a part of the PTA board we get to rub shoulders with so many of you and it’s amazing being a part of such a wonderful community. We wish we could thank each of you personally.  We hope you and your families are doing well throughout this time of quarantine and we hope to see you out this coming fall. 






Stay healthy and happy, we miss you!


As always, please let us know if you have concerns or questions.  We love working with your students, even if it is online.
