Welcome

Hello,

     Welcome to Ridgecrest Elementary School. We are proud of our dynamic and student centered learning environment. Our vision is 100% student success believing that all students possess gifts and talents.

       The 2014-15 school year brings some exciting new programs and school themes. One major theme centers on student enrichment. We aspire to provide all students with opportunities to explore their interests and talents. All Ridgecrest students will be provided with a Renzulli Learning account which is a wonderful learning tool for exploration. The Student Enrichment Model (SEM) will be expanded allowing students to select enrichment clusters to attend. We are also starting a Brown Bag Lunch Series for students providing opportunities to listen to speakers sharing their talents.

     Another major initiative is to expand student clubs. I am excited that our school will have a Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) club for each grade level. We are also starting a Robotics team that will compete in a league.

     Teaching students to live our school’s core values, such as respect, responsibility, self-motivation, kindness and community, will continue to be a key emphasis of our school’s visible character education program. Placing a greater emphasis on service learning projects tied directly to the curriculum will be another character-based initiative this school year.

     We believe that our parents and friends of Ridgecrest play a pivotal role in our learning community. Parents are welcome and encouraged to participate in our enrichment programs as the talents, experiences and expertise of our wonderful parents are substantial. We also invite our parents to attend the monthly All Pro Dad and IMOM breakfasts. One new program this year is Ridgecrest Parent University. This program allows parents and staff to participate and collaborate in a series of online book studies that I will facilitate. The books will pertain to teaching, learning and parenting.

     For families interested in our school, a listing of tour dates is placed on the website. Please register for a school tour as we are excited to show you our dynamic learning community.
                    

Sincerely,
     Michael Moss
