Flex Friday, Surveys, School Store

Believe it or not, we are edging up on Thanksgiving Break already with only a week and a half to go. Thank you again to all of our performing arts students, teachers and parents for the outstanding Veterans Day assembly and evening performances. It was a new format, but one that we plan to keep going forward. Be sure to check out our social media pages for a glimpse of the performance.

In this Skylert, you’ll find:

  • Flex Friday (This Week)
  • School Merchandise
  • Parent & Student Stakeholder Surveys
  • PTSA November Newsletter
  • Volunteers for Job Interviews in January
  • MESA Activities

Flex Friday This Week

This coming Friday, November 19th, will be our second Flex Friday as a district. Each school will be handling it slightly differently, but all within the structure outlined here.

For all Elk Ridge students, they should expect roughly 3 hours total of engagement in schoolwork. This will vary from class to class, but students will be able to complete this work from home. If students have questions about work, they should contact their teacher.

In addition, any student needing extra support will be able to attend in-person between 10 am and 12:15 pm, as long as they have arranged with their teacher beforehand to do so. We love to have you – we just need to know you’re coming. Busing will be provided following the normal Friday bus schedule. Lunch will be served from 12:15 – 1:15 pm, and students who are bused will work in either the cafeteria or the media center until buses come at 2:30 pm.

School Store

Want to show that Wapiti pride? If you want Elk Ridge merchandise, you can visit this link any time from now until December 6th. The store is run by Marchant Design and Elk Ridge does not benefit from your purchase in any way.

Parent and Student Stakeholder Surveys

All parents should have received a survey at the email address listed in Skyward. Please know we take the results of the survey very seriously in our ongoing efforts to improve the quality of every aspect of our school from communication to instruction.

The survey can be taken once for each teacher your student has, so thank you in advance for taking the time to give us feedback and potentially taking the survey seven times so that all teachers get that feedback. Students will also get the chance this Wednesday to take the survey during Wally Time.

PTSA November Newsletter

Our wonderful PTSA puts out a regular newsletter, which can be found here. Check it out for upcoming events, highlights from past events, and more!

9th Grade Job Interviews – Thursday, January 13th

The PTSA will provide lunch for both sessions. Volunteers will be doing short mock job interviews for our 9th grade students. The interview questions will be emailed to volunteers.
