Community Challenge!

In light of the time of year as well as the upcoming Park Hill Achievement Week, we would like to take time next week to celebrate what we are ALL (700+ people) thankful for about Tiffany Ridge! Students will be drawing and/or writing what they are thankful for about Tiffany Ridge at school. If your student or YOU would like to write additional "thank yous" to celebrate someone at Tiffany Ridge, we would welcome your addition to our school-wide celebration of these achievements. Please return completed “thankful” notes to the office no later than next Friday, November 16th. We will create a display in our entryway highlighting what’s so great about Tiffany Ridge!

Keeping You Informed - Are you following us?

By now, you have probably received an invitation from your child's classroom teacher for SeeSaw, where you can find out more about what your child is learning throughout their school day. In addition, Tiffany Ridge has a FACEBOOK and TWITTER site, where we post about school activities, special events, and about student learning in our school and the community!

Parent Learning Opportunities at Tiffany Ridge

Tiffany Ridge teachers are interested in providing information to you about the education your children receive each day at Tiffany Ridge. We would like to gather some pre-planning information from you to be sure we are meeting your needs. Please answer a few questions at the link HERE to help guide our planning. Then, watch for future offerings to meet your needs! We believe that learning is a partnership of parents and teachers working together to help your student build a successful future!

Kindness Club needs your help!

Kindness Club will be doing a Veteran’s project this month. We are asking for everyone’s help in showing our troops how much we appreciate their service.

Here is what you can do:

Please donate your extra Halloween

candy. If you would like to donate your unwanted candy, please bring the candy to either Ms. Reese’s room or Ms. Rowe’s room before November 19th. They will take care of the rest.

Thank you for your kindness.

Meet Grace! A Therapy Dog to join Tiffany Ridge

We are excited to have the opportunity to introduce our students to Grace, a 7 year old golden retriever, trained as a therapy and reading dog at Kansas Specialty Dog Services. She has had 5 years of experience at Hawthorn Elementary School in the Park Hill School District, at North Kansas City Hospital, and at Oakwood Manor Elementary School in the North Kansas City School District.

Grace will be at Tiffany Ridge to assist in meeting the emotional and social needs of our community. We hope that your family is excited about this opportunity also! Students will be bringing a form home that we are asking all students to complete and return it to school, as we need to be aware of any health or safety concerns for students.

Do you plan to join us for Thanksgiving Lunch at Tiffany Ridge?

We will welcome families for our Thanksgiving Dinner on Thursday! Please note that the meal is $3.50 without a drink, and $4.00 with a drink. Exact change or checks made out to Park Hill Food Service will be accepted for adult meals.
