Our 100 Year Celebration on October 14th is quickly approaching! We would love to have some help with supplies and treats for the event. If you are willing and able, please sign up for anything you’d like to provide. https://www.signupgenius.com/go/10C0D4AADA928A2FFC43-44358025-100year
On the event invitation is a RSVP link. Please take a moment to indicate how many people in your family plan to attend (if you’re attending).
You’ll also notice there are slots available to sign up to create a picture display board representing a decade of Ridgeway. We have several tubs of photos and artifacts separated out by decade. We would rather keep these things at school since many are quite old and fragile, so transporting them back and from between school and home may be hard on them. If you sign up for one of those spots, you would need to be willing to come to Ridgeway and work in the teachers’ lounge on this project. If you have any questions about the sign up or volunteer opportunities, please do not hesitate to reach out!
Picture Day is Thursday, September 28
Supplemental work (aka homework) will begin coming home this weekend, this is an optional activity for fun, and extra practice.
Finally, we are looking forward to talking to parents at Curriculum Night next week!
From Ms. Roettgen - Speech-Language Pathologist
Welcome back to another year of speech and language services! This school year, there are a couple changes to speech and language services across the district.
If you have a student in the Speech Intervention Program (SIP), your student will participate in an 8-week direct instruction cycle with the SLP, and then there will be an 8-week in-direct cycle. During the direct instruction cycle, the SLP will work with students in “burst” sessions. Burst sessions will occur 2 times per week for 5-10 minutes outside the regular classroom. During the in-direct cycle, students will be in the regular classroom full-time, but this cycle will address activities to promote skill practice and generalization of speech skills in other environments. At school and at home, this may include a short list of target speech words to practice or reading a page/paragraph using good speech sounds. During this cycle, the SLP will communicate with the classroom teacher and student to provide feedback, ideas, and additional suggestions/activities to promote carry-over across settings.
If you have a student receiving speech or language services through an Individualized Education Program (IEP), your student will participate in a 3-week direct instruction cycle with the SLP according to their service minutes. One week per month will be a collaborative service week in which students will be in their regular classrooms. During this week, the SLP will work with your student in their classroom to promote carry-over of skills targeted during speech and language therapy. The SLP will collaborate with classroom teachers to provide suggestions on how to target goals in the classroom and learn more about the classroom curriculum to imbed curriculum into therapy activities. This model of service delivery has been shown to lead to improved students’ outcomes and generalization of skills across environments.
If you have any questions about your student’s speech and language services, please reach out to me at email@example.com. Thank you!
