RIDGECREST ROAR April 15, 2018
Hello Ridgecrest Parents,
It looks like we might have a wet beginning to our week. Please make sure your child is dressed appropriately each day.
I wanted to address some concerns I have been hearing about the lunchroom. At Ridgecrest, children are required to stay in the lunchroom for 15 minutes each day. We do this so that all students have time to eat and do not rush out to recess too soon. After 15 minutes, a cone is placed at the end of the table that signals to the students that they may be excused to go out to recess. Children do not have to go out at this time, and many do not. They may take as long as they need to eat their lunch. I hope this helps clarify any confusion. Our goal is for students to eat a healthy lunch so they can refuel their bodies for the afternoon and can learn.
The school photographers are offering memory books again this year. These are optional and the school makes no money on them. If you are interest, please order online or return your money to the office by this Wednesday, April 17th.
