Adopt A Senior Program - Thunder Ridge High School
Thunder Ridge High School is promoting a program called "Adopt a Senior". This program is where families in our community adopt a senior at Thunder Ridge High School. Each month you would send your 'Senior' a special note or small gift from now until May. In May, Thunder Ridge will have yard signs available (TRHS Senior Class of 2021!), and we're encouraging everyone to decorate their Senior's yard. TRHS's goal is to make sure these students feel special and not forgotten about during these challenging times. Click the link below to 'Adopt a Senior'.
Hats, Heelys, Smart Watches and Water Bottles
Heelys: We understand how much fun it is to have wheels on your shoes, but Heelys or any type of shoes that have wheels attached are prohibited at school.
Smart Watches: Smart Watches are definitely a convenient way to keep in contact with your child during the day. Yet, Smart Watches are also a very big distraction during class and like cell phones will need to be kept in your student's backpack. Your child will not be able to access their Smart Watches during class. If your student is experiencing an issue during school hours, please encourage them to inform their teacher or come to the front office. We are happy to help.
Water Bottles: Please remind your student to bring their water bottles to school. We do have a place for students to refill their water bottles, but we do not have water bottles to hand out to students.
Thank you for your support

Building Resilience in Young Children
Resilience describes the handling of stress, trauma, and adversity. We all experience varying levels of challenges in our lives and the way we bounce back from them demonstrates how resilient we can be. We will explore why resilience is important, activities that promote resilience, and how caregivers can build their own capacity for resilience during difficult times.
