Panther Press - Week of 11/16-11/20/20

Hello Panthers! Another weird weekend, what else is new! Beautiful day on Saturday followed by crazy winds on Sunday. Hopefully you were able to be productive if you needed to be or just had time to rest and recharge for another week. This will be a busy, but exciting week as we count down to the turkey break! Thank you Veterans! I just wanted to thank all that showed for the live Zoom Veterans Day presentation. I also want to thank all those that made it possible. If you were not in the morning session, hopefully you were able to view the interactive room. If not, here is our  interactive Veterans Day room  again! Chromebook Distribution We were able to check out a significant number of devices for students that were on campus last week. We are ready to check the remaining devices out to students learning from home. We will send out specific details for Tuesday and Wednesday in a separate email, but just know that it will be from 4:00-6:00 pm on Tuesday and Wednesday this week. Vehicl

Panther Press - Week of 11/9-11/13/20

Hello Panthers! I hope you had a great weekend! I didn’t get everything done on my to-do list, but was able to spend time separately with each of my boys so I would consider it a winning weekend. I am not sure what to think about the weather temperatures being in the high 70’s and low 80’s considering we are in the second week of November. I am sure it will change again next week though. Let’s enjoy it while we can. Veterans Day This week we celebrate Veterans Day on Wednesday. It has been interesting planning for a virtual ceremony. While we wish we are able to celebrate our veterans in person, I am hoping that the final product is going to convey the message of how much Ridgeview appreciates our active military and veterans. If you have not sent in a slide, please look at the attached slide show and send us your slide to honor the current military member or veteran from your family. When you click on the link it will ask you to make a copy. You can edit the template or make your own

Panther Press - Week of 11/2-11/6/20

Hello Panthers! I hope you are ready for a great week! Strange weather this weekend, getting sunburned while wearing a coat, well, at least it was good to get outside without the rain and cold mixed together. I want to thank all of the students and staff that participated in the Red Ribbon Week themes last week, it definitely made the week go by much easier. RMS Spirit Night Tuesday - Chipotle - 5:00 - 9:00 pm Don’t forget to support Ridgeview through Spirit Night. Tuesday at Chipotle, 2424 FM 685, Pflugerville, TX 78660.

I strongly encourage students to start the day with breakfast. Students that are off-campus can also take advantage of this opportunity by go

Panther Press - Week of 10/26-10/30/20

Hello Panthers! We are full steam ahead in the second nine weeks. Maybe there was a little time to take a breather last week, but time to take care of business this week. This week is Red Ribbon Week. Have you ever said that a couple of times real fast? We used to have a Red Ribbon Reward Rally. Talk about a tongue twister. We are expecting some weather changes this week, particularly on Tuesday. It seems like every year we have two things happen with the first cold front. 1) students are caught off guard because they did not bring a jacket 2) students leave their jacket at school. For students and parents, I encourage you to go ahead and mark the tag of jackets so that if it is lost, we know who to get it back to. The same goes for lunch boxes and book bags, particularly if you are attending on campus. I also want to give a shout-out to the band for an awesome virtual concert last Thursday! Great job! Red Ribbon Week Themes As we discuss a serious topic this week, we like to have some

Panther Press - Week of 10/19-10/23/20

Hello Panthers! I hope you were able to enjoy a beautiful weekend! We welcome all the new students joining us at school this week. We also welcome the start of the second nine weeks on Monday. This nine weeks will last until we get out of school for the Winter Break! We have learned much over the last nine weeks and are looking forward to a successful 2nd nine weeks. Veterans Day Request Each year, Ridgeview is proud to sponsor an amazing event to honor our veterans and present military members and family. This year we will not be able to have our annual Veterans Day Parade, but we still want to put on an amazing event. You can help by looking at the attached slide show and sending us your slide to honor the current military member or veteran from your family. Since our event will be virtual, we are hoping to reach our largest audience yet. PTA News Thank you to everyone who has been able to support our school through Spirit Nights! Our next Spirit Night will be on Tuesday, November

Panther Press - Week of 10/12-10/16/20

Hello Panthers! I can’t believe it is already Tuesday! I hope you were able to enjoy the weekend! Hopefully students were able to relax a little or for those that needed to catch up on assignments, had the opportunity to get assignments turned in. I do want to remind everyone that the end of the nine week grading period is Friday! Hard to believe that we are a quarter of the way through the school year. I am not sure if everyone will agree with this statement or not, but I feel like much learning has occurred! Maybe not direct knowledge and content in all circumstances, but learning on how to navigate through the unexpected, technology issues, and how to manage a block schedule. Thank you for your continued patience and we work to provide the best experience possible for all students! Technology Parents that are choosing on-campus learning for the second nine weeks please read. In order to serve your students in this next phase of re-opening, we will begin checking out devices and char

Panther Press - Week of 10/5-10/9/20

Hello Panthers! I hope you are doing well. It was a pretty crummy weekend if you are a Texas Football fan. I am not sure if anyone won from the state of Texas on Saturday or Sunday. I guess that is how it goes sometimes. At least the weather was nice and sunny. Instructional Choice Selections - Due Oct 7th Last week I sent out a Google Form for those that wanted to change their instructional choice for the 2nd nine weeks. Here is the instructional choice link again. Remember, you only need to fill it out if you want to change from your current choice. From the Nurse's Office This week letters will be mailed to parents of students whose immunization record on file with RRISD is not up to date. This letter contains exclusion information and pertains to students who are learning both on campus and at home. Please contact Joanne Johnson if you have any questions.
