News and Tidbits

Hello Families,

We are excited to welcome you to the 2022-23 school year at Falcon Ridge. Our first week of school was a huge success. This is going to be the best year yet!

We are glad you have chosen Falcon Ridge Charter School as your school of choice. We are honored to partner with you in your child's education.

Please remember to submit the free and reduced lunch application to the school.

Have a middle school student? Today is the day to select your electives (first, second, and third choice). This can be completed through the Google Doc that was shared with you. We are thrilled to offer two new electives this year: debate and art.

Last week we received the stakeholder survey results for the 2022-23 school calendar. The feedback indicated a preference to keep the current calendar. As a result, there will be no change.

Our theme this year is Keep on Truckin'. Our character development will focus on a growth mindset.
