Early Release this Wednesday, Sept 24th - Dismissal at 1:30pm
Just a reminder that this Wednesday will be our first early release of the year at 1:30 pm. We will not have after-school activities on that day as teachers will be taking part in professional development that afternoon.
Students will have a modified schedule for the day and will not see all classes. We are trying an enrichment format for the first time and hopefully it will be successful and something that we can continue to do periodically throughout the school year. We will also hold our first Reward Rallies, which take place in the gym by grade level. These events are designed to highlight and reward students for holding true to our C.A.R.E. principles.
Feedback on Parent Night
In an effort to continue improving, Mr. Mutscher is seeking input on our recent parent nights that were held on Sept 8 and Sept 9. In an effort to try out new forms of communication and technology, he have set up a padlet site for feedback. Click on the link below and enter your comment. It is much like putting a sticky note on a wall. At the end of the week, we will sort the information and make changes to our formatting if need be, so that we can be more successful next year.
This week is Round Rock’s “Education Go Get It” (EGGI) week. Please note that there will be a College Fair Monday Sept 22, at Round Rock HS beginning at 6:00. Also, Friday, Sept 26, Cedar Ridge will be visiting in the morning to give a short presentation and answer questions about “Academy” offerings. This event will take place in the Lecture Hall from 8:15 -9:30 am. We invite and encourage parents to join us at lunch this week wearing a shirt from your alma mater to promote higher education.
Principal Advisory Committee
Students who are interested in having a voice about what happens at Ridgeview are encouraged to fill out an online form to be in my principal advisory committee. We will be meeting monthly. My goal is to hear from all students, not just those that are popular or that belong to certain clubs, or make straight A’s. I hope to have a group of students representative of each grade. Students can sign-up through the link below.
Ridgeview cross country is starting soon. The new coach this year will be Eileen Sanchez from Blackland Prairie Elementary. She can be contacted at email@example.com for further details.
