Straight from the Hardt

Hello Ridgeline Families- I know you’ll be impressed by our students when you look over another fantastic newsletter this week! Concert season is in full swing, and winter sports have seen an excellent turn out. Other opportunities to be involved in clubs and activities are highlighted this week. It is well known and supported by research, that students who get involved in ANY sort of school related activity beyond the classroom has greater sense of belonging and well-being. If your teen hasn’t found a place and you think they should, please give their counselor a call and maybe they can help. A new program outlined in the newsletter is the After School Tutoring program. This will be staffed by Ridgeline teachers. Check it out and see if it is something you would find valuable and helpful for your student. Please remember to drive with caution and watch for people during before/after school pick-up times. Stay alert at the roundabout, and please don’t park near the roundabout where it could prevent traffic from flowing through in any direction. I don’t mind creative thinking in where you drop off/pick up your child as long as it isn’t blocking traffic or busses. Next week is Thanksgiving with EARLY RELEASE on Wednesday- schedule follows below. We appreciate the opportunity to work with you and your teenagers! Make it a great weekend! --Mr. Hardt
