Heritage Day 2016
April 1 was Heritage Day at Ridge School and we celebrated the diversity of our student population. Many thanks to the parent volunteers who came and taught us about the different countries students visited. We also were treated to a fabulous assembly presented by the Universal African Dance and Drum Ensemble. Thank you to the HSA for organizing this special day!
Author Cynthia Lord visits Grades 3-5
Newbery Honor Award Winner Cynthia Lord recently visited Ridge students in grades 3-5. Her presentations offered students and teachers strategies for writing and gave insight into her inspirations for writing Rules and Touch Blue. Students prepared for her visit by learning about and illustrating superstitions, going on a photo scavenger hunt, making bee houses from recycled materials, and researching pets. Many thanks to the Ridge HSA for sponsoring the visit and Books, Bytes, and Beyond for supplying books. Secretary Brenda Bankos and library media specialist Michele Eng organized and planned this event.
