Ridgecrest Roar – March 24, 2024

RIDGECREST ROAR        March 24, 2024

Good evening Ridgecrest families,

What a fantastic talent show we had on Friday night! We had a wide variety of talents displayed including a hoverboard dance, a Kpop performance, glow in the dark dancers, and many wonderful musical and dance performances, just to name a few. Thank you to our PTA who works hard to make these wonderful events happen for our community. And, thank you to our performers, you were truly impressive.

Spring Break is coming up April 1-5 and the school will be closed during this week. The next Ridgecrest Roar will come out on April 7.

School Information

STEAM Night – We are very excited to announce our first ever STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) Night on April 9th! This event is open to everyone in our Ridgecrest community! Please plan to join us.

Our STEM teacher, Alicia Freeman, and a team of volunteers will be facilitating a variety of STEAM activities at Ridgecrest on this night. We hope it will be a fun evening full of STEAM exploration for our students and their families. To do our best to have enough activities for everyone, we are holding 2 sessions on this night. Food will not be provided during this event. 

  • 5:30-6:30, Session 1 – for students whose last name starts with A – M

  • 6:45-7:45, Session 2 – for students whose last name starts with N – Z

Ridgecrest Readers: Staff Recommendations – 

Where the Red Fern Grows is a novel by Wilson Rawls. It was one of my favorite books to read. The novel follows a twelve-year-old named Billy as he saves up for and eventually buys a pair of redbone coonhounds to help him hunt in the Ozarks. Overall, Where the Red Fern Grows is a heartwarming book about friendship, love, and loyalty between a boy and his dogs. It’s hard not to cry at parts and the ending is simply beautiful

Lost and Found – Our lost and found is full! We will be donating lost items at the end of this week. Please stop by to see if your child’s items are there or remind your child to take a look this week.

Dress Code Reminder –  As we head into spring, it is a good time to review the dress code for school. Our district’s dress code can be found attached to this post, if you would like to see the full policy. At Ridgecrest, we emphasize coming dressed in clothing that is appropriate for the day’s weather and activities as well as demonstrating respect and safety while performing the job of being a student. A few of the highlights from our district policy to review with your children are:

  • Tops should cover the trunk of the body and bottoms should extend to approximately mid-thigh. A picture of the figure that explains this in our district policy is attached to this week’s message.

  • Hats and hoods are not allowed to be worn inside the building.

  • Shoes should be worn at all times.

  • We shouldn’t see anyone’s underwear.

Please know that as a staff we approach dress code as a learning opportunity and we will always do our best to be kind. We would appreciate your help making sure your children understand what is and is not appropriate for the school setting as well.

From the PTA:
