TedEd Kids

After watching some educators in San Diego gather a group of students to perform TED Talks, Kelle Hughes was inspired to involve our South Ridge students. As soon as the application through TEDx was accepted, McKenzie Hettman and Kelle began coaching a group of 12 South Ridge students to find their inspiration for TED talks.


These students have been working since January to fine tune their presentations. Their hard work will be showcased in a TedEd Kids South Ridge event on June 4th at Ridgefield High School.


  • TedEd Student Talks Showcase at RHS Performing Arts Center from 5-6:30 on June 4th
  • Free admission! Concessions available (benefits SRES PTA)
  • TedEd Student Talks will be recorded and uploaded to the TedEd Student Talks Youtube Platform this summer, so if people can't make it -- they can still watch and support SRES.

Grade 3 and 4 State Testing Reminder

State testing at South Ridge Elementary School will take place Monday, May 16, 2022 through May 27, 2022 . Testing will take place first thing in the morning on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday of each week.


3rd and 4th graders will take the Smarter Balanced Assessment in ELA and Math.


Preparation and more information will be shared with students from classroom teachers, and school will run on our normal schedule with minimal disruption. Student preparation only requires the following:

  • A district-issued Chromebook. We are required to upload a secure browser, which can only be uploaded on school issued Chromebooks. Any students who do not have a school-issued Chromebook should do so in preparation for the testing. Our limited supply of extra Chromebooks on campus are for students whose district devices are being repaired.

  • Please send your student with their headphones/earbuds. Bluetooth airpods/earbuds will not work for testing. We have a limited number of headphones available for check out.

  • As is requested for daily learning, Chromebooks need to be charged nightly the weeks of May 16th and May 23rd.

  • It is recommended that students get a good night's sleep prior to testing, and bring snacks as teachers will build in breaks.

  • Please make sure your student is on time for school daily, as the testing takes place in the morning.
