Straight from the Hardt

Hello Ridgeline Families—

One of the positive outcomes for me through the pandemic has been a renewed appreciation for the “little things” and “moments” that feel like a normal school experience. ‘Normal’ doesn’t actually represent how satisfying it is to see our student’s faces and hear their voices when they are doing regular things like talking at lunch, walking in the halls, or laughing and having fun during a spirit week! A typical interaction with a student carries a greater significance than it ever has before. That’s why our goal is to make our best effort to ensure those encounters are positive and demonstrate our commitment to them as young people and a commitment to helping them reach their goals. The high school experience is happening again and you can feel it during spirit week, at games, or at Regiment competitions. Each Friday when I reflect on the week I have gained an appreciation for how great our students are, how passionate our staff is, and how supportive our community has been. If we do this year in the best way possible, our foundation will be solidified and our Falcon Pride and Spirit will show through to all who pass through these halls. Make it a great weekend! –Mr. Hardt

Veterans Day

Dear Falcon students, families, and staff,

We would like to honor the veterans in your family during Veterans Day next week. We have a few questions and you can upload a photograph of your family and closest friends who have served. These vets will be honored during the assembly and throughout the week on our video screens in the Commons.

You can only fill out one form, but each form can accept up to 5 veterans. We are requesting students and staff to fill out information for one veteran, but you can add up to four more if you have a lot of service history in your immediate family.

Photographs in uniform are wonderful, but it is not required that uploaded photos are of someone in their uniform. Please complete submissions by Monday, November 1st so we can include your honorees in the assembly the following week. Thank you for helping us honor those who you are close to. Veterans Day is an important day to celebrate our service men and women.

Thank you Leadership Spokane for joining us!

Ridgeline High School hosted a tour organized by Kelli Demarest (LS Class of 2016) for some members of the Leadership Spokane Class of 2022 and a few alumni on Wednesday, October 20th led by Jay Rowell, Associate Superintendent, and Jesse Hardt, Principal. They learned about how RHS went from being a vision that was imagined to the reality that it is today. They were all very impressed with the aesthetics, and features of Ridgeline. Thank you Leadership Spokane for joining us!
