TO ACHIEVE, INSPIRE AND MOTIVATE EACH CHILD
Ridgeview Elementary School picked up right where it left off on the last day of school before the start of summer break. On the first day of school, Friday, August 3, Andrea Aragon, RVES assistant principal, greeted every student at the front door.
Nearly 400 fourth and fifth-graders from 10 schools across D49 participated at the all-district track meet May 17 at Falcon High School. Students were gathered together to practice physical education skills learned throughout the year and to experience competition.

An emotionally safe and caring culture is the heart of the Capturing Kids’ Hearts program. That environment is seen every day at Ridgeview Elementary School, and it’s the commitment of staff that earned the school a Capturing Kids’ Hearts National Showcase School Award for the 2017-18 school year.
Two teams, which included both students and staff members, were honored for their contributions to the district prior to the regular monthly Board of Education meeting Feb. 8.
