Falcon Ridge Family Updates

November 1, 2021

News and Tidbits

Hello Families,

I hope you had a wonderful week!

Falcon Ridge has been abuzz with learning - including our young future scientists in the elementary science lab, the fifth grade field trips to Starbase Idaho, and visits from the Kuna Public Library.

The middle school girls' basketball team has started the season with a spectacular showing. Their next home game is sure to be exciting this Tuesday as the girls host at Falcon Ridge at 4:00 pm.

Thank you to the PTO for hosting the Trunk-Or-Treat event at Falcon Ridge on Friday evening. Many families and staff participated in this lively family event.

If you have not already done so, please take a moment to note the following:

  • 2022-2023 Calendar Survey: Calendar Survey 2022-2023 Survey closes 11/5 @ 3pm
  • Ski Night Interest Survey: Ski Night Interest Survey Survey closes 11/8 @ 3pm
  • School Store- If you want to add some Falcon Ridge spirit wear, check out the new school store! You will be able to purchase school swag on Myschoolbucks. Orders will not be accepted after November 5th.

Our character trait for November is gratitude, which means, "the quality of being thankful, readiness to show appreciation for and to return kindness." Gratitude turns what we already have into enough. I am grateful for the families, students, and staff at Falcon Ridge Charter School!

Important Bus Information

As you know, there is a state-wide shortage of bus drivers and Falcon Ridge is no different. We are short one bus driver this year and have consolidated the four routes into three.

In the event that one of our three drivers needs to be out, we will need to cancel a route for that day. If we need to cancel a bus, you will receive a text and/or email as soon as we receive notification from the bus company. Please be prepared to make other arrangements if this occurs. If the bus driver is sick, the notice may come as late as the school morning.

Please have an emergency contact available who can transport your children if you are unavailable.
