RIDGECREST ROAR       Dec. 17, 2018

Hello Parents,

We have a busy three days this week. We start with Monday and the Parent Holiday Student performances. K-2 starts at 2:00 and then 3-5 start at 2:30PM. We would like to ask that if you plan to attend, please do not leave after your students performance, please stay until the end of the 3 grades you are watching have finished. On Wednesday we have the student sing along and then classroom parties. Please see the Upcoming Events section to view the time of your students party.

The student holiday sing along on the 19th is for students and staff only. It is an opportunity for the students to hear each grade levels songs that they performed for the parents. We sit in the round in the gym and sing. Often we have a jolly visitor.

Next Wednesday, Dec. 19th will be our last day before the break. This IS NOT a short day. We will get out at 3:20 like usual. Most of the grade levels are having their holiday parties in the afternoon.

If you are in the building before the break, please check the Lost and Found. We have placed it along the wall near the Kindergarten rooms. The lost and found will be donated to charity on the afternoon of the 19th.

Before and After school programs have been cancelled on Tuesday and Wednesday of this week. There will still be Techniteers, Jr. Coaches and Chess Club on Monday.

The Ridgecrest Spelling Bee will be taking place in January. The Spelling Bee flyer was sent home with students last week. A copy of the flyer is attached.

Also, all word lists by grade as well as links to detailed Spelling Bee information can be found on the PTA website www.ridgecrestelementarypta.org
