MESSAGE FROM INTERIM PRINCIPAL ROBIN LOWE

Image

Hi Parents,

 

Just a note that we are coming up on the end of our first nine weeks of school - I know, it's crazy how fast this year is already going by!  Our first report cards will be posted on October 26th, but the end of the nine weeks is actually on October 20th.  Remind your kids to talk to their teachers about any late work or test retakes they need to do!

 

Also, I want to let you know about a program the district has implemented called Quick Tip.  Quick Tip is a way for parents or students to report bullying, suspicious activity, or concerns about a student's physical or emotional health to school administrators.  When you make a report through Quick Tip, there is an option to submit the information anonymously.

 

Our counselors and assistant principals will be working with our students to ensure they are aware of Quick Tip and its purpose, but we wanted to make sure that our parents are also aware of the program. Often, you hear things from your kids long before we do!  Early notification really helps us to ensure the safety of all our students.

 

Quick Tip can be found on our website under the "Connect" tab in the drop down menu.  It can also be found by clicking "Student" on the far right side of the page.

 

Have a wonderful three day weekend!

TAKE & BAKE PIZZA FUNDRAISER - WRMS Band

Image

The West Ridge Band is currently holding a fundraiser through Personal Slice, make-and-take pizza. Funds raised will go directly to students' band travel accounts to help pay for our trip to the Music for All National Festival in Indianapolis in March or our Spring Trip to San Antonio in April.

 

Now through October 14th, you are invited to order 14" cheese ($11), or custom topped ($14) make-and-take (uncooked) pizzas.

 

Your order will be delivered on Monday, October 16th.

 

Click on the following link and choose a band member that you would like to support, or select "General Order". You may also choose to just make a donation through the site if you wish.

CLICK HERE TO ORDER PIZZA OR DONATE

 

Each pizza is delivered fresh because it is locally made using high quality ingredients and the dough is made from scratch for every order. Pizzas can stay fresh refrigerated for 2 - 3 days, or frozen for 2 - 3 weeks.

They make the perfect meal on a busy school night!!
