On Friday January 19th, Mrs. Taylor’s Study Skills class had a day to make a connection. Sixth graders were paired with an adult at Ridgeview. Their goal was to learn something about the adult. Students had to introduce themselves and facilitate a conversation. They worked on life skills, such as handshakes, confidence, eye contact, listening, and most importantly making a connection with someone they do not speak to daily. Thank you to Ridgeview staff who were interviewed!
