Let's Gather!

We are thrilled to invite your family and friends to our South Ridge Elementary Community Dinner. This community has much to celebrate. Days are getting brighter, worries are getting lighter.

On Thursday, March 31st, Tina Condon of Steakburger will be onsite serving up their specialties. Tina and her family are long term residents of Ridgefield. She is South Ridge Alumni and a Spudder Grad! Her four children also attended and graduated from Ridgefield School District, and her grandson currently attends elementary in our district as well!

Geoff Sainsbury of The Doghouse, another local favorite, will also be onsite with his mobile hot dog cart! Geoff has been a resident of Ridgefield for 8 years. He and his wife, also a local business owner, feel privileged to live in and serve our community. In Geoff's words, "It's by far the best community I've ever come across. Everyone seems to know each other and really care about keeping that small town charm." Geoff only operates here in Ridgefield and loves meeting new neighbors, so come by and introduce yourself!

Food carts will be near our playground with covered seating available, but feel free to bring blankets and personal seating. We will have activities for families and performances from our Roadrunner musicians.

RSVP to let us know you're joining!

Counselor's Corner

March is Women's History Month during which we are encouraging the study, observance and celebration of the vital role of women in American history. This year's theme set by the National Women's History Alliance is "Providing Healing, Promoting Hope."

Let's celebrate the contributions women have made to the United States and recognize the specific achievements women have made over the course of American history in a variety of fields.

Our counselors put together Google Slides highlighting 20 prominent women. Each slide contains a read aloud, famous quote and a brief video bio. This resource was shared with teachers to support classroom discussions, and can easily be extended into conversations in the home.

Parent Pick Up Reminder

For students that are in K or 1, please use the parent pick up lanes. Kindergarten is the lane closest to the sidewalk. Refrain from parking and getting out of your vehicle. We have had many parents signaling students from the west side of the parking lot sidewalk area. This is a safety issue. We do not have crosswalk coverage on that side of the lot, there is moving traffic, and we cannot keep a visual on students to ensure they are being picked up by the appropriate adult. We also have students walking to the buses from Building B along this sidewalk and need to keep the sidewalk clear for them.

We have also had issues with parking in the ditch along the side of 199th. This is causing damage to the school property, is becoming a traffic hazard, and with our wet weather has caused vehicles to get stuck in the mud. We are not able to assist in removing any vehicle that gets stuck in the ditch.

Thank you for helping to keep South Ridge a safe campus for our students.
