Falcon Ridge Family Updates

News and Tidbits

Hello Families,

The wintry weather has arrived! As the temperature cools, please remember to send your student with a coat. We play outside each day, even in the fall and winter months.

Please note that we do not allow personal electronics such as cell phones, smart watches, fit bits, etc. These need to be turned off and kept inside of student backpacks (per Falcon Ridge Student Handbook). This is for the protection of our students and the learning environment. If a student needs to contact a parent, the office phone is available. Thank you for your support.

Our theme this year is Keep on Truckin'. Our character development will focus on a growth mindset. This month's character trait is gratitude. Be sure and ask your student if he/she has earned a Falcon Card.

We are glad you have chosen Falcon Ridge Charter School as your school of choice. We are honored to partner with you in your child's education.


Dr. Jorgensen

Electronic Devices

Our goal is to provide an academic environment free of distractions being conducive to learning and a social environment that supports the development of kind and respectful relationships. Use of any electronic devices such as cell phones must be turned off and in your backpack at all times. Any student using their phone or any electronic device other than before or after school will have them confiscated. If a student needs to contact a parent, he or she should come to the office. Conversely, if a parent needs to contact a student, he or she should contact the office.

Good Manners for Kids to Have

  • Saying “thank you” after something is received, given or exchanged.
  • Using the word “please” when you’re asking for help or would like to receive something you want or need.
  • Looking people in the eye when you greet them or if they’re talking to you. (Once toddlers master please and thank you, then begin working on eye-contact.)
  • Greeting others with “hello” or “goodbye” as well as responding to someone when they greet you.
  • Saying “I’m sorry” or “excuse me.”
  • Holding the door open for others.
  • Not speaking over others, but waiting until it’s their turn to talk.
