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!
The November Student and Teacher of the month awards were given today. A big thank you to Ric Flair for hosting this monthly event.

She studies hard and takes class seriously. She is organized and thoughtful. She will go out of her way to make someone else smile. She will occasionally leave me a thoughtful note or treat on my desk. On numerous occasions she has made snacks for her whole class out of the kindness of her heart.

Mrs. Jones says I am nominating Ashanti Requena for Student of the Month. Ashanti is very helpful to everyone and always tries to help if someone is not having a good day. One day she printed off inspirational sayings for each student in our English class. Each saying was different based on the person. We secretly put them on the desks so it was the first thing the student saw when they arrived for class. It was a great way to boost her classmates self esteem and so nice of her to think of everyone.
