PTA Sponsored Programs
When you join PTA, you help support the programs of the PTA as well as receive a way to stay connected to your children’s classmates. Single Memberships are $10.
PTA sponsors service projects throughout the year. We encourage our children to be active participants in our community, learning early about the responsibility of giving back. The projects range from clothing and hygiene item drives for underprivileged families, coat drives and book drives, to canned food drives. Watch for information in the newsletters for announcements of this year’s projects.
Education and Scholarship
Each spring, the PTA awards a scholarship to a graduating high school senior that attended Ridgecrest. This year the scholarship will be $500.
PTA helps host school events throughout the year by providing refreshments at meetings and gatherings along with organizing and assisting to serve our annual Thanksgiving luncheon.
Teacher and Staff Appreciation
Luncheons, Classroom Gift Allocation, Ridgecrest T-Shirts, and Birthday Recognitions are just a few of the ways our PTA shows our teachers and staff how much we appreciate them.
The PTA coordinates the Homeroom Parents for each classroom. The Homeroom Parents organize the class parties and serve as a liaison between the PTA, the teacher, and the parents. Thank you to the several of you who have already agreed to be Homeroom Parents this year!
The PTA publishes the school newsletter. It is sent home in the Wednesday along with your child’s progress report.
