Ranger Report

September 8th, 2023

Welcome Back!

It's been a great week! We had our Kindergarteners start on Wednesday and our school if full of almost 600 amazing kids. I've seen students really dive into their learning already doing Mental Math, Problem Solving, and some great writing projects.

Mondays are "Ranger Mondays" and we encourage students and staff to wear their Elk Ridge gear. If you are in need of some Elk Ridge gear our PTA is putting on a Spirit Wear sale until September 15th.

Monday is our first late start Monday of the year. During this time our teams meet as Professional Learning Communities to discuss student work and design interventions and next steps based on student work and data. Our school has been nationally recognized as a Model PLC at Work School. Thank you for your continued support in this gift of time that makes a positive difference for our kids and their learning.

School Hours:

Tuesday-Friday- 9:00-3:25

Monday (Late Start)- 10:00-3:25

Weekend Backpack Program

If your family is in need of assistance with meals over the weekend, please fill out the Weekend Food Bag forms that were sent home today.

The Ranger Way

Students at Elk Ridge are recognized for following The Ranger Way in several ways. One way we recognize students is through Ranger Bucks. Ranger Bucks are given to students and turned into the office. Our first Ranger Buck drawing was today. Ranger Buck drawing winners can earn stickers, small prizes, or an extra recess!
