Belong. Inspire. Grow.
Straight from the Hardt
Hello Ridgeline Families- The Holiday Season is here and it has been great watching our leadership students spreading cheer by way of a handmade snowflake for every student at Ridgeline. Students have been having fun trying to find their snowflake with their name on it. If you haven’t been down our hallways and throughout the building, I can tell you there is a lot of ground to cover to find your personalized snowflake!
In the theme of giving, students were also treated to free hot chocolate, also sponsored by our leadership class. Another great event was Thursday’s blanket making event. These hand-tied fleece blankets will be donated to foster care and homeless support organizations. A full-feature article will be in next week’s newsletter.
With just one week to go before students are off for two weeks, it’s a good time to reach out to teachers if you have questions about any matters related to your child’s academics or other topics you’ve been wanting to run by their teachers. Since they will have more free time, any late or missing work could be completed during the break.
Please note our office hours and dates we will be open/closed over the break. Take a look over our newsletter to stay informed and enjoy the great things happening at Ridgeline High School!
Make it a great weekend! --Mr. Hardt
