It was great to have our Back to School Night and so wonderful to see our students on the first day come in eager to start the school year.
Just a couple of reminders. Please don’t forget to send a refillable water bottle to school with your child so that they can use them in the water filling stations as our drinking fountains are closed. Also, Ridgemont has switched to on-line tickets for all home athletic events. To purchase tickets follow the link Ridgemont Ticket Box Office. Many other schools in our area are also moving to on-line ticket sales.
