Scouting Is Adventure, Family, Fun, Character, Leadership and So Much More!  In Scouting, boys and girls start with their best right now selves and grow into their very best future selves. It’s fun, hands-on learning and achievement that puts kids in the middle of the action and prepares them for today – and for life.

September 16 – Parent Virtual Meeting   7:30-8:30pm    To join this meeting, email Pack Master Jason Harper at harperjasonh@gmail.com

HSA Announcements


Ridge HSA Membership / Directory

Please go to https://www.ridgehsa.org/shop to pay your family’s Annual Membership Dues which will also give you access to the Directory! Let’s be honest, this year is going to be hard for fundraising so it would be great if we had 100% family participation in the HSA Dues. The HSA uses your membership dues to support our student enrichment programs. Additionally, you get access to the Ridge online directory that contains school activities, family contact information and other valuable school information. The District is using a new mobile platform called GroupSpot (formerly Kohort) for the Directory this year. Once you pay your dues, you will get access to the ap in a few weeks and as the Directory content is available this fall, it will be updated. Note: there is a $5 delivery fee added to each order through the website to cover Ridgewear shipping fees; however, we can refund this fee if you are only purchasing the Directory.


Ridgewear is LIVE!!

While you are paying your membership dues, you can purchase some great clothing items from the Ridge Store! We have an exciting line of hoodies, pajama bottoms, tee shirts and shorts. The sale will only be open from September 1st until September 25th.

We plan to deliver the items to your child’s classroom if they are in school or we will schedule a few pickup times at Ridge for remote students.

Please visit our Ridge HSA online store for more information.


HSA Volunteer Positions are Still Available

Please sign up for open positions! You will have the support of the HSA Board, former Committee Chairpersons and all the parents who want to get involved but aren't sure how to do it!  Sharing your time, energy and/or expertise by being a part of the HSA Committees is priceless to our Ridge Community plus the kids LOVE to see their parents involved! Sample positions available:

Ridge Calendar Coloring Contest!
