RIDGECREST ROAR June 4, 2018
Wow, we are down to the last Ridgecrest Roar! What an amazing year we have had at Ridgecrest. I want to take the opportunity to thank our PTA president, Marci Cardon, and the PTA board for the many amazing activities they have provided for our students and teachers this year. The PTA helped to plan and organize Ridgecrest's 50th Anniversary Celebration, the Fun Run, two Book Fairs, Veteran’s Day Assembly, Spelling Bee, Talent Show, Chinese New Year Celebration, teacher dinners during parent teacher conferences, Teacher Appreciation Week, the School Carnival, Field Day, Ridgecrest Runners, Chess Champs, and many, many more activities. We could not have such a successful year without our amazing PTA volunteers!
The last day of school is this Thursday. It is a very early release! We are out at 12:40 and we do not serve lunch or breakfast!
Please note I have attached the calendar for next year. I have also listed a few Ridgecrest activities in the Upcoming Events section below.
Field day is this Monday, June 4th. 3rd-5th grade will be outside from 9-11:30am, 1st grade will be outside from 12:45-1:45, and 2nd grade from 1:45-2:45. It looks like it will be a very hot day. Please have your students bring a water bottle with their name on it and wear sunscreen. Also, wear clothes and shoes for outside activities, but no bathing suits. Hats are optional.
We are short 2nd grade parents, please sign up!
