We will be holding our first Falcon Ridge School Community Council of the year on Thursday, September 21st, 5:30-6:30pm, in the media center. At that meeting we will finalize the meeting dates for the remainder of the year. We will also be updating the roster of the School Community Council members in the next few weeks and will post the roster online.
Dear Parents, Students, Faculty and Staff,
Welcome to the 2017-2018 school year! Teachers are busy preparing and planning for a new group of students. Our custodian has spruced up our building and campus and our secretaries are working hard on entering registrations, ordering supplies for the building and organizing the office down to the smallest detail. I am grateful for their work to bring your children the best possible environment in which to learn.
Our goals this year are to improve student reading and writing abilities, improve student attendance to 95% average daily attendance, and create a climate where students can become strong leaders. We invite you to partner with us on our educational journey.
We have two teachers new to our school this year. Mrs. Lori Bassham will be teaching theater to our students through the Beverly Taylor Sorensen Grant and Mrs. Linnette White will be teaching fifth grade. Mrs. White is replacing Mrs. Hanna. We welcome them both to Falcon Ridge this year!
I want to update you on our school information. This year we have 745 students enrolled. 26% of our students are on free or reduced-price meals. Approximately 9% of our students are English Language Learners and we have an average daily attendance of 92%.
I invite you to also become a supporting member of our PTA organization. Membership dues are not very much and help to provide fun activities during the year for students.
The school will be sending a flyer home soon regarding the School Community Council. The Council meets four times a year to review School Land Trust funds, review student assessments and progress, and review safe walking routes and school safety. We will have a few openings so watch for the flyer for further information.
I look forward to working with you and your children this school year. Falcon Ridge Elementary is a great place to be every day!
Mrs. Michelle Peterson, Principal
