Helping Hands Carter Blood Drive

Monday, May 23rd, 8am-2pm

1601 Marshal Ridge Drive

Keller, TX

Ridgeview Helping Hands Blood Drive (Click here to sign up to donate)

This year we will be participating in the Jr. Leader Program. Each student who brings a loved one to donate blood will receive a Jr. Leader’s T Shirt. Also, classes will be competing against each other for a classroom popsicle party. Donors will sign in at the drive, indicating which student they are donating for.

Adult Lunch Balances

Please make sure you are taking care of your balances in the cafeteria. This needs to be done each month so that Tawana can reconcile her books.

Thank you!

Computer Cart Availability

The Dell Cart will not be available for checkout in May due to end of year ISIP and STAAR testing.

Please remember you must reserve computers/iPads before the date you need them. Sarah checks the calendar each day before she leaves and students deliver the technology between 7:30 - 7:50.

Finally - please do not reserve computers that you aren't using. We have limited resources and everyone needs access to them. Consider working with your team to use the grade level ChromeBooks when possible.

PBIS/CHAMPS Tip of the Week

Tell the students that you have a VERY special reward for them, but it’s a big surprise (and I mean BIG). You have purchased a magic timer that goes off at different times. Every time the timer goes off the teacher will do a behavior check. If EACH student is on task and following directions a piece of the motivator will be revealed. Or the motivator could be in an envelope and as soon as the class earns a designated amount of points they earn it. Keep the suspense going so things are not so predictable!
