Falcon Ridge Family Updates

News and Tidbits
I hope you are having a wonderful December as we start the Christmas season!
Our character trait this month is compassion, which means a deep awareness of, and sympathy for, another’s suffering. We will focus on demonstrating compassion for others this month as we continue focusing on character development at Falcon Ridge. Students can earn Falcon Cards when they are "caught" being compassionate to others.
Please note that the lottery will open on December 10th for all new students (even if there is already a sibling attending Falcon Ridge).
The Falcon Ridge student council is hosting a Christmas spirit week starting December 13th. Please check out this newsletter for the details.
Have a fantastic week!

December Character Trait: Compassion
From the Counselor
Hello Falcon Family,
In the true spirit of Christmas, Santa’s Little Helpers has organized an Amazon Registry to bring Christmas to families who may benefit from having a little Falcon Ridge love. Nothing brings me more joy than watching closely as the items disappear after purchase from the list.
Taking just one item off the list can bring Christmas morning smiles to our young ones and teens alike! What I love most about this Wish List is that each person donates anonymously. No one knows if you bought the $5 stocking stuffer or the $50 sweater. There is an item for every budget. You can even contribute towards the purchase of an item that may cost a little more than you want to spend. The reward is the spirit of giving. Even the smallest item can bring a smile to a child. So many of you help our community in so many ways. Keep giving how you normally do!
If you would prefer to provide in another way, like gift cards, or stocking stuffers, please reach out to me. We hope you find something in your budget!
Below is the link to the Amazon Santa list:
Please have the items brought to the school no later than Tuesday December 14th, so that the families have time to pick them up. If you choose to wrap them, please label the item, so that I can place them with the correct family.
Example: Group “A” Blue shoes
If you would prefer to have the item shipped directly to the school, the address is below:
Attn: Tara Chowriamah
Falcon Ridge Charter School
278 S. Ten Mile Rd.
Kuna. ID. 83634
Thank you again, for your generous heart, and the value of giving you are teaching your children.

Student Cell Phone Protocol
Our goal is to provide an academic environment free of distractions being conducive to learning and a social environment that supports the development of kind and respectful relationships. Use of any electronic devices such as cell phones, game boys, MP3 players, and CD players during any time of the school day is in conflict with both of these goals. If any of these devices are brought to school, including cell phones, they must be turned off and in backpack at all times. Any student using their phone or any electronic device other than before or after school will have them confiscated. The student’s parents will be responsible for coming to the school and picking them up.
