December Newsletter

Dear Hickory Ridge Parents,

It’s hard to believe that it is already December. The past 4 months have flown by. As the temperatures drop, please remind your student(s) to wear coats to school for outdoor recess.


I wanted to thank all our parent volunteers who participated in our “Deck the Halls.” Our students were very excited to return to school from Thanksgiving Break and see all the decorations displayed throughout the building. Our students were excited to see all the decorations upon returning from Thanksgiving break. A special thank you to Mrs. Ludwig and Mrs. Sinko for coordinating this event.


On behalf of myself and the entire Hickory Ridge Staff, we wish you a safe and enjoyable holiday season with your family and friends!

Student Attendance

When reporting your student(s) off of school, call our attendance line at 330-273-8104 and not our main line. Our attendance line is available 24/7 so that you can report his/her absence at any time. Calls should be made by 8:00 a.m. of the day of the absence.

Santa Shop

Our PTG will be hosting Santa Shop for our students from December 6 - 10. All classrooms will have a designated time for shopping. Your students shopping time will be sent home by the classroom teacher.


Adopt A Veteran

Thank you to all those parents who had their students participate in the Adopt A Veteran initiative by contributing $1.00 on December 1 for our spirit day. Through your generosity, we were able to raise 523.51. All collected money will be used to purchase items that 9 local veterans identified as things they like.


Again, thank you!

Deck the Halls

Thank you parent volunteers!
