Teen Night

Mark your calendar for Ridgeview's next Teen Night which will be on Friday, December 13th, from 7-9PM. There will be food, a DJ, inflatables, games and more. There will also be an ugly sweater contest that evening. One young lady and one young man will win a $25 gift card for having the best ugly sweater. It will be a great opportunity to make new friends or just hang out with old friends. We are in need of parent volunteers for the evening as well as dessert donations. Please drop off all dessert donations to the RJH Office by the end of the school day on FRIDAY, DECEMBER 13TH.

If you are interested in volunteering during any of these shifts, please contact Jennifer Sander at jennsanderpto@gmail.com We’d be thrilled to have you!

Lost and Found

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 soon be donated to charity. 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.
