Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year at Ridgway Middle/High School! Hopefully the summer months have provided you with some rest, relaxation, and an opportunity to rejuvenate. Even though we hate to see summer nearing the end, we can't wait to begin a new year as we prepare for your return on August 23, 2018.
We will mail back to school letters to parents during the first week of August. Please be sure to review all materials with your child and have them return the necessary forms on the first day of school. Sixth grade students will receive their back to school packets at orientation on August 15 at 7:00 p.m. We will send out student schedules during the week of August 6.
In addition to our welcome back letter, you can find important links listed below:
Before you head out to pick up your school supplies for the new year, please reference the supply lists recommended by your teachers. If a teacher is not listed, they will inform you of their requirements on the first day of class.
Tips for Parents
- We all know that summer is carefree and kids tend to get off course. Proper rest is essential for a healthy and productive school year. Ideally, teens should get 8½ to 9½ hours of sleep per night. Start weaning your child from their summer sleep patterns so that by the time school starts, they are back to their school sleep routine. This will help give them a great start to a new school year.
- Encourage learning beyond the classroom. Start open discussions with your child regarding their goals for the new year. Encourage them to participate in extracurricular activities and work together to figure out what areas are of interest to them. Whether it be athletics, music, drama, art, science… there are many opportunities within the school setting that will enhance their educational experience. Visit our Clubs and Activities page for a list of ideas to help you get started.
We wish everyone a successful 2018-2019 school year! Please don’t hesitate to contact the office with any questions or reference our website for additional resources.
