Please sign up to volunteer for a half hour time slot or donate water. https://www.signupgenius.com/go/70A0C45A4AB2EA3FB6-back

Please remember that the Red Zone is for students who can unbuckle their own seatbelts and open the car door by themselves in a timely manner. We ask that students be ready to exit when the car is stopped. Please have your student only exit from the passenger side in the marked Red Zone at drop off, and only enter your car in the Red Zone at pick up. Parents are not permitted to park in the Red Zone line and get out of vehicles, and children are not permitted to walk down the driveway and enter cars that are waiting for the Red Zone. The teacher parking lot is only for 4th and 5th grade students, not for parking and walking your children. Please wait for crossing guards to cross you. Be patient, no speeding or honking. To keep the Red Zone running we need to have help in the mornings and afternoons to ensure that rules are followed and to assist when needed. Please help us keep our kids safe by following these rules and by volunteering.
Our Ridge Social for parents will be held on Friday October 7th at the Goldberg Residence. Details to follow!
We know schedules are busy! Cub Scouts gives families an opportunity to share fun experiences together and make lasting memories while hiking, pinewood derby racing, launching rockets, fishing, attending optional overnight trips, and much more.
