Belong. Inspire. Grow.
Straight from the Hardt
Hello Ridgeline Families-
What a week! We had to come back down a bit after the energy expended during Homecoming week! Personally, I had a great time. It went like this… spirit assembly, tailgate party, football game with HOCO royalty and Regiment performance, to bed…, back up- beautiful motorcycle ride to Union Stadium in Mead to support the Regiment (we swept the competition!), back home- mowed the lawn, got dressed up and joined all the students and many staff at an Epic Homecoming Dance! Did I mention we sold 1,024 tickets? And I think everyone showed up! I’m really proud of our students for participating in the extra/fun aspects of high school. That’s what belonging is all about. Everyone had a great time and danced and sweated the night away! Even for non-dancers it’s a great social event.
In today’s Falcon Flyer we celebrate and highlight the great things our students are doing as well as provide important reminders for parents. Yearbook purchase, senior photo deadlines, freshman class officer applications, and more!
Are you cleaning out your closets, getting ready for winter? We’d love to have your gently used coats and jackets for our Coats 4 Kids drive!
As you’re skimming through the Flyer, don’t miss the November 1 kick-off for ticket sales to “You Can’t Take It With You”. There are only 3 performances so get your tickets early and often! This is our first fall play and our actors are working very hard and it sounds like it’s going to be very fun and entertaining. We’d love to have all the community support possible for the student performers, and remember, all proceeds go directly back to the theater program for future events!
I know we’re still a new high school, but with as much as we have happening, I feel like we’ve been around forever, and that’s pretty cool! All the credit to our amazing staff that goes above and beyond to create ways to connect students to powerful experiences to enhance their lives!
As always, we appreciate your continued support and involvement! Make it a great weekend! --Mr. Hardt

2022 Ridgeline HS Veterans Honor Wall
We would like to honor the veterans in your family during Veterans Day next month. We have a few questions and you can upload a photograph of your family members 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 Thursday, November 4th 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.
