I would love for him to continue teaching at Ridgeview until he retires. He has helped me through rough times and I'm sure he has helped other kids through their rough times as well. He is the nicest teacher I have had.

Katelin Donaldson (9) wrote: She tries to do different things each day to make everyone happy. Even though she is new, all of the students respect and look up to her. She has rules and expectations and everyone fallows and meets them. She is understanding. She knows that learning a new language is hard, so she helps us out as much as possible and is always trying to do activities so that we have fun and want to learn.
Katie Thompson (12) wrote: She has been very very understanding about what we have and haven't learned throughout our Spanish careers. She has been very patient with us and I know that she has our best intentions in mind while keeping the class fun and energetic I hope that she continues this throughout the year, and it is because of this I look forward to her class.
The weather is getting colder. The flowers are dying. Students at Ridgeview took the initiative to create positive and inspiring posters to lift spirits! Our esteemed cafeteria staff accepted the challenge of judging the posters on the criteria of: Most creative, best saying, and craftsmanship. Congrats to Mrs. Weber's class on taking home the overall prize! Great job Ridgeview students!
National Red Ribbon Week is designed to promote students to live a drug free life. Through positive activities and dress up days, the junior high student council collaborated with mentoring classes to develop positive relationships and memories. Students dress up days included: USA day, favorite sports team day, twin day, Duct tape day, and class color day. Games played included Heads/Tails, kick ball, and three legged races. Daily winners were given "stars" to display on their lockers. Every student received five items to remind them "Your Future is Key: stay Drug Free": all items included the Red Ribbon monogram (pencil, coin, sticker, bookmark, and tattoo).
The Junior High Student Council would like to express their gratitude to the mentoring teachers and Mr. Campbell for judging and encouraging participation in each days activities.
