News and Tidbits

Hello Families,

I hope you had a restful weekend with your family. It's hard to believe that tomorrow is the first day of November! As the temperature cools, please remember to send your student with a coat. We play outside each day, even in the fall and winter months.

It was wonderful seeing so many of our families at the Trunk or Treat. Thank you to our PTO for hosting this event!

Our theme this year is Keep on Truckin'. Our character development will focus on a growth mindset. This month's character trait is excellence. Be sure and ask your student if he/she has earned a Falcon Card.

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.

Welcome Mrs. Roberts!

While we are sad to say farewell to Mrs. Rice as she moves out of state, we are delighted to welcome Mrs. Roberts. Please see her message below.


I am the new 2nd grade teacher, taking over for Mrs. Rice. My children Rayland (2nd grade) and Byron (first grade) have been attending Falcon Ridge since kindergarten. What a wonderful school, staff and learning environment for our children. I'm excited to continue my involvement now as a teacher and staff member.

I worked in the field of education for over ten years prior to becoming a full-time mom. I taught 6th grade at a charter school in Oregon and 5th grade at an elementary school in Chapel Hill, North Carolina. I have lived in Idaho for the past ten years. Kuna is a wonderful place to raise a family and Falcon Ridge is the cherry on top!!

I can't wait to get to know you and your children more. Have a wonderful weekend.

Famous Failures

Good Manners for Kids to Have

  • Saying “thank you” after something is received, given or exchanged.
  • Using the word “please” when you’re asking for help or would like to receive something you want or need.
  • Looking people in the eye when you greet them or if they’re talking to you. (Once toddlers master please and thank you, then begin working on eye-contact.)
  • Greeting others with “hello” or “goodbye” as well as responding to someone when they greet you.
  • Saying “I’m sorry” or “excuse me.”
  • Holding the door open for others.
  • Not speaking over others, but waiting until it’s their turn to talk.
