Ridgeview Rundown

Week of December 15th, 2014


"That" Kid: This article reminds me so much of the work we do here at Ridgeview. Thank you for being an advocate for all of our children! I believe our parents really understand and support the work we do, so I saw this article more as an affirmation of the many things you do in teaching children and adults alike. You make a difference!

This Week's News

Staff Holiday Fun: Jessica and I are looking forward to hosting our staff breakfast next Friday at 8:00 in the LMC. You all deserve a treat! :)

Gratitude: Don't forget to keep adding notes of kindness to the buckets in the work room. Spread the joy!

Safe Schools Training Due Dates: The due date for the "active shooter" training is December 15th. You may have other trainings due January 16th.
