Dear students, parents and guardians:


Our Leukemia/Lymphoma Society fundraiser exceeded its goal and raised over $2000 this year—S2090.13 to be precise. We appreciate everyone’s support in raising money for this worthy cause! Special thanks to Mrs. Hay and Mr. Compton, who agreed to be our first teachers duct taped to the wall to raise money.


Below are a few of the upcoming events for Ridgeview Middle School:


The seventh grade civics teachers will be having a student mock election for Virginia Governor, Lieutenant Governor and Attorney General on Monday, November 6th.


Election Day is Tuesday, November 7th, so there will be no school that day.


A Veteran’s Program is scheduled for Wednesday, November 8th, at 1:00 in the auditorium.


Mid-term progress reports are scheduled to go home Thursday, November 9th, for those students who are making D’s or F’s in a class, for students whom the teachers have concerns, and for students who parents have requested a progress report. Progress reports do not go out for all students, so parents wanting progress reports will need to contact the teachers of their children.


Club meetings are scheduled for Friday, November 10th.


The Barter and Pro-Art organization will be putting on a performance for the middle school students on Monday, November 13th, at 1:00 in the auditorium. They will be presenting “Twas the Night before Christmas.”


Middle school basketball has begun. The first home game will be Wednesday, November 8th, against Central, followed by games on Monday, November 13th, against Union, Thursday, November 16th, against East Side, and Monday, November 20th against Pennington.


Schools will be closed Monday, November 20th, through Friday, November 24th for the Thanksgiving Holiday. School will resume on Monday, November 27th.


Reminder: when sending excuses for absences, we need the student’s first and last name included with the date of the absence.


With sincere thanks,


John R. Whitner
