This week we celebrated Random Acts of Kindness. Throughout the week the students performed numerous acts of kindness.
Saddle Ridge Science Fair
SR Christmas Concert
A great turnout at this years Christmas concert. With so many parents and students, the concert was held at the Cheyenne Civic Center. A HUGE thanks to Mrs. Smith Burt for putting on another great concert. Thank you to all the parents and staff that helped behind the scenes getting the students where they needed to be. Don't forget if you want a copy of the video, $20 each, there are order forms in the office!
This year's walk-a-thon was a great success. With the money raised we are able to increase our technology equipment for the students! Prizes have been given out to students, if you feel something is missing or wrong please let the office know and they will pass on the information to PTO.
Who can join Mini Bank: All Students enrolled at Saddle Ridge are eligible to enroll. This is a program for all kindergarten through sixth grade students. Sorry no Parents!
Initial Deposit: $2.00 Minimum Deposit: Any amount after initial deposit
Interest Rate: 4% for every month, at a bank you would only earn 1/2%. Maximum of five withdraws are allowed.
Why is Mini Bank better than going to the bank? Students who bank with Mini Bank receive 4% interest rate rather than 1/2% interest rate at the bank. The money a student saves is still at the bank. A bank representative collects the money from Saddle Ridge Super Stallion Savers Min Bank each Banking Day.
Mini Bank Date:
October: 4, 18 November: 1, 15, 29 December: 13
January: 10, 24 February: 7, 21 March: 7, 21
April: 4, 18 Last day to Deposit: May 2
PBIS and Blue Star Tickets
Has your student come home saying they earned a star ticket or they filled up a Star calendar? Have you ever wondered what that means or how they earned them? Every staff member has a stack of these blue tickets that they hand out to a student when they see them being Safe, Respectful, or Responsible. The student's name goes on both parts; the small part goes on the calendar and the big part gets turned into the office on Fridays. We have a weekly drawing, one per grade level, for a small prize. At the end of the year, all the blue tickets turned in are put in for a HUGE end of the year drawing. In the past we have given away bikes, Nooks, laptop, and many other items donated by parents, PTO and the PBIS team. Calendars are turned in to their teacher when they have earned and attached twelve. Mr. Jackson goes around weekly and hands out certificates to those who have turned in calendars.
Thanksgiving Holiday Lunch
Be on the lookout for the lunch forms to join your student for the Thanksgiving lunch. Forms and money are due by October 21.Lunch times are different for this special day so please check the sheet for your student lunch times. Students are charged their regular lunch prices all others will be charged $4 per sibling/adult that will be joining us. Due to the volume of parents and guest we will not be accepting money during the luncheon. We do order a few extra meals but cannot guarantee that you will get a meal if forms and payment are not turned in by the deadline.
Picture retakes will be Friday, Nov. 4. Only students who were absent or want to take new pictures will be asked to take these. There are no times for classes the photographers will be here from 8:30 to 11:30 for all interested. Picture forms can be found in the office.
Your student should have brought home a date and time for you to meet with their teacher. If you have not seen these please contact the teacher. If you have any questions or concerns with the date/time of your appointment feel free to contact the office or the teacher to reschedule. Remember October 26 is a half day for elementary students and they will be released at 12:15 with no school for them on on the 27 or 28.
