Straight from the Hardt

Hello Ridgeline Families-

It was an honor to host our first ever all-school Veteran’s Day assembly this week. It was an extremely moving event with tribute speeches, music, and ceremonial activities. It’s not an assembly any of us will forget. It was also the first time our students were all together in the gym for a formal event. They rose to the occasion. While not surprising, it is both humbling and gratifying to see their level of respect given to our Veterans in that moment. We’re proud of them! A special thanks to Mr. Eric Parker for putting on this powerful event.

Check out how many awesome things are happening at Ridgeline High School in today’s newsletter. I’d like to point out an important community event we could USE YOUR HELP with over the next two weeks. The Unity in the Community Holiday Blanket Night happens Dec. 9. We are seeking donations of fleece, ribbon, hats, socks, gloves or $$. Scroll through the newsletter for further details about donations and the event. Thank you for your support!

Federal Title 9 law requires us to survey students about their interest and participation in high school athletics and activities. We have tentatively scheduled this to happen during Advisory on Nov. 30. You can preview the entire survey at this link to our district assessment page: https://www.cvsd.org/apps/pages/assessment Reach out to me if you have any questions (jhardt@cvsd.org).

Girls Basketball Registration

To All Prospective Girls Basketball Players and Parents,

Please make sure to sign up for the Remind App on your phone or computer and sign up for the Girls Basketball Remind link. This is how general information will be communicated with players within the program as well as, their families. As coaches, we will not be asking for personal contact information such as cell phone numbers. If there is a general message that needs to go out from coaches to players or families regarding the girls’ basketball program, a Remind will be sent out. The code for the girl’s program is @RHSGBBAL.

Also, please make sure that you have registered for girls’ basketball through Final Forms. You will want to do this immediately because it will take a day or two for all uploaded documents to be verified and cleared. Practice starts Monday November 15, 2021 at 3:15 and will conclude at 5:30. The gym will open at 2:45 for shooting around and final preparations. Do not hesitate on with your registration. If you are not cleared you may not participate in the first day. Reminder: Try-outs will be three days before teams are selected.

**Expect to see the first remind message sometime before Monday morning!!
