Ridgeview STEM Junior High School

December 13, 2019


Unfortunately, the Teen Night scheduled for today has been cancelled. Stay tuned for a new date.

CHECK THE LOST & FOUND!!!!!! Items not picked up will be donated

Missing your coat? Did you reach into your pocket and only find that you have ONE glove? Can't see as well without your eyeglasses that seem to have disappeared?

Our lost and found items are really piling up and will be donated to charity on Dec. 19. Please check the L&F bins in the hallway near the choir room.

There are small items such as eyeglasses and electronics kept in a locked drawer in the main office. See one of the office staff.

SOS -------------------------------->

As part of the SOS Signs of Suicide Prevention program, RVJH and New Horizons Mental Health Services will be providing another round of suicide prevention lessons to our students who have not been through it yet. Please read the letter about this session. If you wish to have your child opt out of the free screening offered during the SOS program, please print off this letter, fill it out and return it school by Dec. 20.

Thanks to all who Participated in Spirit Week for Holiday Help!

PTO News

Looking for Service Hours?

The PTO will be opening our school store to the PYAA Basketball games and we need lots of help to cover each Saturday. We have done this the last couple of years and it has gone over well with those attending the games. If you have a student that needs volunteer hours, we will sign off on those hours for them when they volunteer. Please keep in mind, we require a parent or adult to be with the student throughout the entire shift. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Jennifer Sander ~ jennsanderpto@gmail.com or 937-694-0987 Thank you for your support of the PTO.
