News and Tidbits
Dear Falcon Ridge Families,
We're thrilled to kick off the new school year with great energy and enthusiasm. The halls are once again filled with the joyful sounds of learning. As we embrace the "Character of Champions" theme for this year, we look forward to nurturing not only academic excellence but also strong character traits in our students. Thank you for being an integral part of the Falcon Ridge family.
Exploring the Character of Champions
This school year, our focus is on building strong character traits in our students. Each month, we'll delve into a different trait that defines a champion, such as respect, compassion, gratitude, and more. Through activities, discussions, and projects, we aim to shape students who not only succeed academically but also contribute positively to their community.

Welcoming New Families
A warm Falcon Ridge welcome to all our new families! We understand that beginning a new school journey can be both exciting and daunting. To assist you in this transition, we encourage you to explore our Student Handbook. It provides essential information about attendance, dress code, and the use of electronic devices, ensuring a smooth start to the school year.
Prioritizing Attendance for Success
As we return to a sense of normalcy, we want to emphasize the importance of consistent attendance. Our school's attendance policy will be enforced, as it significantly affects state funding and your child's learning progress. Regular attendance ensures your child gets the most out of their education and contributes to the overall success of our school community.
Mark Your Calendars: Early Release Mondays
A friendly reminder that every Monday, school will dismiss at 1:30 pm. Please make arrangements for your child's pick-up or transportation accordingly.
Get Involved: Join the PTO
Our Parent-Teacher Organization (PTO) plays a crucial role in enhancing the Falcon Ridge experience. We encourage all families to get involved by attending meetings, volunteering, and participating in PTO-led events. Your support strengthens our school community and enriches your child's education.
As we venture into this school year, we're excited about the opportunities for growth, learning, and connection that await. Thank you for entrusting us with your child's education. Together, we'll create a memorable and enriching academic journey for every student.
Please feel free to reach out to us with any questions, feedback, or ideas. We value your partnership and look forward to a fantastic year ahead!
