RIDGECREST ROAR       Dec. 11, 2017

Hello Parents,

​​​​The Christmas Break is quickly approaching and we only have 7 days of school left.  Please notice below we have a school choir concert this week, as well as our annual Parent Sing Along next Monday.

Lost and Found

The lost and found is once again full!  It has been placed down the kindergarten and 1st grade hall.  It will be out until the morning of December 19th. Please stop by and look for any missing items.  We will donate any remaining items to charity on the afternoon of the 19th.

Social Skills Curriculum

This month, our school wide theme is emotion management. In our morning announcements and school assembly we’ll be prompting students to notice their own feelings by paying attention to clues in their bodies, and we’ll be reminding them to use their Second Step skills to calm down:

  • Stop—Use your signal
  • Name your feeling
  • Calm down: Breathe, count, use positive self-talk

These skills help students calm down strong emotions when faced with learning and social challenges, which helps them succeed academically and get along well with others.

There will be no Debate this Monday.   

PTA News

Jersey Mike’s Week - Please read the attached flyer.  Each student will receive 2 cards allowing the card holder to receive a free sub sandwich with a donation made to the Ridgecrest PTA. For each card and free sandwich that will be picked up, there must be a person present at the time that the sandwiches are ordered and redeemed. Jersey Mike's will not allow 1 person to come in with 3 cards and pick up 3 free sandwiches. Thank you for participating in the fun community night and for your generosity.

Spelling Bee- Linked you will find the Spelling Bee flyer.  Note that Kindergarten will be using the 1st grade words and additional links for more advanced studying will be available via the PTA website.  Please find all of the spelling bee lists linked below.
