Welcome to Ridgeview Middle School

Dear students, parents and guardians:
 I hope that everyone is having a great summer and enjoying their vacation. I just have a few items I want to share in preparation for this upcoming school year.
 
Report cards from this past year can still be picked up at the middle school office between the hours of 9:00 and 2:00.
 The first day of school is Monday, August 7th.

 Parents of the incoming sixth grade students are reminded that their children have to have their Tdap shots and those shot records turned in to the guidance office before they can attend school this fall.

 Supply lists for the 2017—2018 school year can be found under the “For Parents/Students” tab on the Ridgeview Middle School website. After clicking on that tab, scroll down to the bottom and click on the tab “Supply List 2017-18,” where you will find supply lists for each grade level. We have asked the grade level teachers to condense their lists so that the items will be the same regardless of which group of teachers a student will have. Walmart is also supposed to have a copy of the supply lists in their store in Wise. 

 Open Houses are scheduled during the first week in August so that parents and students can receive their schedules with their locker assignments and meet with their teachers.

 On Tuesday, August 1st, from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m., the 6th grade Open House will be held at Ridgeview Middle School. The Open House will begin with an opening program in the auditorium at 5:00. Lilly Thacker, the school nurse, plans on being here to meet with parents.

 On Thursday, August 3rd, from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m., the 7th and 8th grade Open House will be held at Ridgeview Middle School. The Open House will also begin with an opening program in the auditorium at 5:00.

  I am looking forward to seeing you at the upcoming Open House.

 With sincere thanks,

 John R. Whitner
