What’s Happening

It’s time to start forming the new RRISD Cheer Squads for the 2019 – 2020 school year. 
CURRENT RMS 6th and 7th graders – 
We will be having our mandatory parent meetings on January 22nd and 23rd from 6 pm – 7 pm in the RMS Lecture Hall. You and a parent MUST attend ONE of the meetings (even if you are on the team this year). Please contact Coach Davis in 467 or Coach Pickle-Pena in room 564 for any questions (OR via email).

CURRENT 8th graders interested in trying out for Cedar Ridge Cheer Team 
PLEASE note that tryouts are NOT limited to current cheerleaders. You must also attend a MANDATORY meeting on January 24th OR 28th at 6 pm at Round Rock High School. It is required for the student AND a parent attend ONE of these meetings. 

Contact Cedar Ridge cheer coach Teri Kirby or RMS cheer coaches (Davis or Pickle-Pena) for more information . 

Thank you to those of you that have filled out the latest climate survey from the district. We get a report each week to show how many responses we received. We are ahead of last year’s pace, but still below the average voter turnout. Here is the information again. We would love to have your input to help us improve! Our Ridgeview Annual Family Survey is mobile-friendly and short, it should take about 5 minutes to complete. Your input is valuable and used to plan for improvement and implement new opportunities for your student.

Rise Against Hunger is an organization that we have chosen to sponsor with to raise awareness and funding for those in need. We will be collecting money during lunches. The goal is to raise $4000 to support Rise Against Hunger. For every $1, students will be entered into a raffle for amazing prizes. Here are links to videos for more information and on the Rise Against Hunger Mission. We will be making daily announcements. The goal is for each student to raise $3 to donate which is about the average cost of one lunch at Ridgeview. Let’s do this Ridgeview!

Each year, Ridgeview has taken time to celebrate the cultures that make up our school and community. This year we will celebrate International Day on Tues. the 29th. One of the features is an International Cultural Museum. If you have authentic items from another country that you are comfortable lending us for the week, we would love to display it! This can include traditional clothing, pictures, coins, or artifacts. Our goal is to show the global presence that is represented at Ridgeview. Please bring items to the front office to ensure that we properly label them and they are returned to you when we take down the displays.

Be on the lookout for online ticket sales as well as dates for lunch sales to students. The cost for student wristbands will be 5 dollars and if your student is a PTA member the cost is only 4 dollars. Concessions will be sold at the dance. All items will be one dollar. Pizza, Popcorn, Chips, Candy and Drinks will be available.

The Theater Department will be presenting the musical Xanadu. There will be two weekends of shows – the 8th and 9th at Ridgeview and the 16th at the Cedar Ridge Performing Arts Auditorium. Tickets are available for purchase at the link below. This will guarantee you a seat and we almost always have a sellout crowd!

Round Rock ISD is hosting informational forums designed to familiarize parents/guardians with the District’s sex education curriculum, Living WELL Aware Adolescent Wellness and Sexual Health® developed and presented by Scott and White. There is no fee to attend.
The Living WELL Aware, Worth the Wait curriculum will be presented to all middle school students in the Spring after the conclusion of the scheduled parent forums. Boys and girls in the sixth-grade will receive separate instruction.
