The Women in Engineering Club will be hosting a Girls STEM day at Cedar Ridge High School on February 15th.
Coding Club will be starting when we return to the new year. Mrs. Young will be hosting this club for students that want to build on their experience with Hour of Code and learn how to do more in-depth coding. Students will be using a variety of website to code based on interest. Since many fo these sites require a student to login, we are requiring students to have a parent permission slip on file to participate. The club will meet on Thursday mornings in Lab 514at 7:40 am. Contact Robin_Young@roundrockisd.org with any questions.
Code like a Girl
All girls are invited to join Code like a Girl as we begin again on January 25th. We will be starting a new topic focused on creating apps for mobile devices this semester. Code like a Girl meets every Monday in Lab 514 from 3:45 – 4:45 pm and is led by Mrs. Young. Contact Robin_young@roundrockisd.org with any questions.

Spinal screenings will be conducted at Ridgeview starting February 1. All 6th graders will be screened on February 17-19 during their PE class. 7th and 8th graders without a record of a spinal screening will be screened on various days throughout the month as student, teacher, and nurse schedules allow. Boys and girls will be screened separately. Students must remove their shirt for this exam; for this reason, we request that girls wear or have a bra, sports bra or camisole available during the screening period.
If you do not want your child to participate in this screening program, please notify our school nurse, Joanne Johnson, in writing and provide current documentation of a physician’s screening results.
If you have any questions please call or email Joanne Johnson at 512-424-8421 or
We will begin Boys & Girls track season on Tuesday 2/16. Both 7th & 8th Girls/Boys practices will be during the Athletic period and after school from 3:45-5:00.
We will host two track meets the season. One on Thursday 3/3 & Thursday 3/24, if you would like to volunteer to work the meet, please contact Coach Aguinaga at (512) 424-8517 or firstname.lastname@example.org. We are looking for adults to time and pick places of running events. It is a great way to be close to the action.
Food Services is preparing to launch our annual ViewPOINT Survey for 2015-2016. The survey is a valuable tool that helps us not only grade our performance but identify actions we can implement to provide better service. Some of the topics covered include:
- Student preferred breakfast and lunch items
- Student satisfaction with common menu offerings and new flavors they would like offered
- Specific reasons why students decide to eat or not eat meals at school
Student perception of performance across 16 key food, customer service and dining environment attributes (taste, variety of food, line speed, staff friendliness)
- Students’ thoughts about making healthy choices and most effective methods of communication nutrition information to them.
This electronic survey can be taken anywhere – in school, at home or on the go and requires approximately 15 minutes to complete.
Students will be able to begin taking the survey as early as Monday, January 18th by visiting http://www.studentvp.com/RRISD. (Survey ends February 12th)
As an incentive for participation, students will have the option to enter to win one of 20 Beats headphones upon completion of the survey. Winners will be selected from all entries across the country.
Ridgeview will be hosting a Career Day for our March 2nd, Enrichment day. Career Day will consist of four (25 minute) sessions from 8:30-10:30. We would love to have you speak with our students about your profession. If you are interested, please go to the following link http://goo.gl/forms/RG7u7OohE7 and fill out some basic information and we will contact you or please contact Mrs. Schmoyer email@example.com and we will sign you up.

The counselors will be visiting 6th and 7th grade classes during the week of Feb. 8-12 to discuss elective course offerings and distribute choice sheets for next school year. The completed/signed choice sheets will be due back no later than Feb. 26.
RMS has started new after-school activities for students. We now have an afternoon study hall for students in the computer lab (310) for any student between 3:45 and 5:00. Panther Den will be available Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday. Students will first report to the lower commons and then will be picked up by a teacher and taken to lab 310. General questions can be asked, but it is more of a quiet place for students to work on homework and have access to computers to work on projects. If students need specific help, we encourage them to attend a tutorial by their teacher or another teacher in that grade level subject area. An afternoon bus will be available for students and will leave the school shortly after 5:00. There will be designated drop-offs in neighborhoods. These drop-offs will be determined by repeat students riding the bus.
We have posted tutorial schedules in the hallways and common areas to help students know when tutorials are available.
