RIDGECREST ROAR       Feb. 21, 2021 Hello Ridgecrest families, This is an exciting week at Ridgecrest.  We are having our Virtual Parent Teacher Conferences this week.  A Parentteacher conference is a great opportunity for teachers to share academic progress and growth. It is also a time to learn from parents so teachers can be better informed about students’ strengths, needs, and behaviors. The teachers will send families the link to the online conference. Our conferences are only 15 minutes long, so please be on time.  Enjoy your conference!   Thursday is an Early Out day.  All students are released at 1:40 PM!  Morning Kindergarten is released at 10:45 AM. There is NO SCHOOL or online learning this Friday, as it is a comp day for teachers.   We are sending home an Intent to Return form with students.  Please check their backpack or print it from here. Intent To Return.pdf  Please only return the form if your child will not be attending Ridgecrest next year.  This is critical that we have this information as we are entering the hiring season and need to accurate on how many students we attend Ridgecrest next year.   Career Day: We are excited to have a Virtual Career Day at Ridgecrest Elementary.
