Ridgecrest Roar

Nov. 10, 2019


I hope you had a great weekend and enjoyed the sunny weather! We have a busy week that starts off with our Veterans Day assembly tomorrow morning at 9!5. We are also continuing our service project for the Road Home.  Please see below! 

Parking lot issues: we are starting to see parking lot issues again. As we prepare for winter it is critical that we all do our part in following the parking lot rules and use kindness and patience with each other.  Please remember if you do not want to use the drop off and pick up lanes, then you need to park and walk over to the crosswalk to pick you your children.  We can’t have children walking through the parking lot on their own.  They are not tall enough to see and we want to keep all our students safe.  Thank you for your help!

NO Chess Club on Monday.  Due to our Veterans Day assembly. 

Our annual Veterans Day Assembly is on Monday, Nov. 11th at 9:15.  The community is invited to this assembly.

Attendance issues – A few weeks ago I sent out the attendance policy.  It explains that each student can have vacation days.  In order to have a student be excused for vacation, a vacation form needs to be filled out and prior arrangements with the teachers need to occur.   This needs to be at least a week in advance so that the teachers have time to put homework together.  If the teachers do not have enough notice, they are not able to get work ready and students will not get homework.  Please email the teacher as well as filling out the form so everyone is aware of your vacation.

As a Ridgecrest staff we try to motivate students to follow the school rules, attend school, and participate in class so that learning is optimized. We do this through many different incentives, raffles, and classroom rewards.  All of these incentives are costly.  One easy way to contribute without sending in money is to connect your Smiths and/or Dans frequent shopper numbers to Ridgecrest.  Each time you shop at the grocery store contributes a small amount to Ridgecrest.  Please take a moment to sign up for these two programs. Attached are the directions.  Thank you!

Big Smiles Dental is coming on December 5th.  They will start seeing students who have returned completed forms at 9:00 AM.  Forms went home last Friday.
