Red Ribbon Week Classroom Posters

Every classroom designed their own poster to show their support of Red Ribbon Week and they all rocked it!  What a unique way for all students to participate in the special activities of the week.  Thank you to all of our teachers and students for their hard work!  Without a doubt, “Our School Rocks Bully & Drug Free!” #ChooseKind #RRW

 

Kindness Has a Domino Effect

Second & third grade students came up with their own ideas on how to #ChooseKind this school year.  During our counseling core curriculum lesson, we read Be Kind and discussed how one small act of kindness can cause many more kind acts to follow.  Choosing kind every day can have a huge impact on our school, community and the world!

 

Newcomers Groups

It has been great to get to know all of our new students at the Ridge this year!  Newcomers groups are offered for all new students in first through fifth grade.  We meet twice during the few weeks of school as a grade level group in my counseling office, allowing new students from different classes to get to know each other.  These meetings also provide support by facilitating conversations related to how it feels to transition to a new school and ideas on how to make it a positive adjustment.  #BestYearYet
