Hello Ridgecrest families,

Sorry this is so late.  I will be honest, I was watching the Super Bowl. Tonight, I want to draw your attention to a few things that are timely.  First, the learning option window opened today and will close next Sunday. Please see the paragraph below. Second, the Teacher of the Year Nominations will close tomorrow morning at 10:00 AM.  If you have a teacher you want to nominate, please get a nomination in right away. Third, the parent teacher conference scheduler is open and closes this coming Sunday. Please see the instructions below. Lastly, we end our week on Thursday with Valentine’s Day.  I am sending my love to each and every one of you.  Thank you for your patience, kindness, and understanding during this year. I appreciate you and feel blessed to work with such an amazing community!

 

Chinese New Year Thank You: I would like to thank the PTA and our fabulous Chinese teachers for hosting a fun Chinese New Year celebration day on Thursday.  The school looked beautiful and the students had a fun time in their classrooms celebrating!

 

Next Monday, Feb. 15th is President’s Day – We do not have school this day!

 

Do you want to change learning options:  The window opened today, Feb. 7th and closes on Sunday, Feb.14th.  Parents wanting to move from online to in-person or in-person to online will need to login to Skyward on one of those days and change the learning option for term 3.  The window is not flexible, so please do this as soon a possible. The new learning option begins March 8th.

Hello Ridgecrest families,

It is unbelievable that tomorrow is February.  This year is flying by and before we know it we will be having parent teacher conferences at the end of the month.  Parent Conferences will be online again.  Please see below on how to sign up.  The window opens tomorrow, Feb. 1st through Feb. 14th.

Parent Teacher Conferences:  Parent Instructions to Schedule PTC.docx

 

Valentine’s Day: This year Valentine’s Day will look a little different than in the past.  We are doing our best to make sure the students have a great day though. Each team is doing something a little different; teachers will be letting you know this week in their newsletters what their plan is for the holiday.  Please watch for that information to come your way! One thing that is consistent across the school is that we will not have students bring in Valentine Boxes from home.  We will celebrate Valentine’s Day on Thursday, Feb. 11th.

 

Teacher of the Year: It is time for Ridgecrest and Canyons District to select their teacher of the year. Of all years, this would be a great time to nominate a teacher!  We review all nominations and pick a teacher that stands out to the community, students, and staff.  Please take a moment to fill out this google doc.  If you would rather fill out a nomination on paper, that is great. We are sending home a paper with each student on Monday. Please return paper copies to the office. You only need to do one or the other, not both!  https://forms.gle/LA4HbX6BTez47AF36

 

Do you want to change learning options:  I have been asked when the window will be open for parents to change the learning option for the last term?  The window opens from Feb. 7th -Feb. 14th. Parents wanting to move from online to in-person or in-person to online will need to login to Skyward on one of those days and change the learning option for term 3.  The window is not flexible, so please put this on your calendar.  The new learning option begins March 8th.

 

PTA

Watch social media for another TEACHER FEATURE this week, as well as an ART WALK through the hallways. 

The Chinese New Year Celebration will be different this year. The students will be able to participate in celebratory activities in their classrooms during school. Watch the Facebook and Instagram page for photos of this event.  We will be celebrating Chinese New Year this Thursday during the day in each classroom.

 

We are having a virtual Book fair for 2 weeks starting 2/21/21. Check it out to see how much it feels like you’re walking through a “real” Book fair.
