Update - Student Group Pop-in Celebrations for Honor Roll

Update: Due to an unanticipated change in the Write Score Assessment window which will now be Jan. 23-25, we will postpone our Honor Roll Celebration to Friday, January 27th to ensure students can attend! We are excited to have honor roll students pop in to the cafeteria for a brief and somewhat informal celebration of honor roll. Honor Roll will recognize all students achieving ALL A’s in ALL content areas as well as all students achieving ALL A’s and B’s in ALL content areas.

Parents, we share this information with you for awareness, but this ceremony - while special - isn’t one we encourage parents taking time off of work or busy schedules to attend.

Silent Auction Items are Needed

Who has a vacation house that they would like to share? The Parent Party sponsored by the Foundation is coming up soon. Auction items are needed and committee members would love to talk to anyone who might consider donating an item or service. Think small business gift cards, performance tickets, a VIP Braves game experience or even a dreamy beach getaway. Please contact Becky Neece by email or (678) 570-5861 to donate or find out more information. The deadline is March 1.

Prospective Parent Tour is Jan. 31

Ridgeview offers prospective parent tours monthly for parents (and students welcome!). The next offering is Jan. 31 at 12:45 p.m. Please visit our prospective parent tour page for more info and to RSVP.

Course Scheduling 101 Information Meeting

The class scheduling process for next year's 6th, 7th, and 8th graders is about to begin. Mrs. Bulluck, assistant principal, hosts this annual meeting on Thursday, Feb. 2 at 6:00 p.m. in the cafeteria with critical information so that parents can be engaged in this process.
