Ridgeview Rides

INFORMATION FOR STUDENTS AND PARENTS

 

Ridgeview Central School, in partnership with the Fort Vermilion School Division, has been given an awesome opportunity to offer free Equine Studies starting this fall.  Our Equine Studies Program will be called “Ridgeview Rides” with the slogan “Fostering S.T.A.B.L.E. Relationships”

Ridgeview Rides will be designed to focus on these six areas. 

S - Strength
T - Teamwork
A - Achieving your goals
B - Believe in yourself
L - Life-long learning
E - Establishing Empathy

Our mission is to provide an out-of-school experience that reinforces the nature and expectations inside Ridgeview Central School.  Although we have not nailed down all of the details, we are open to ideas, thoughts and suggestions that will help Mr. Steeves and Mr. Hann as they continue to work to make Ridgeview Rides a great success.

While Ridgeview Rides is still in its infancy, we are eager to let you know about this exciting program that will be funded for a three-year pilot period.  Our goal is to continue with Ridgeview Rides after the three years are complete.  This possible continuation of the program will have an awesome impact on our students and their future.  We hope to have those who go through the program take over and run Ridgeview Rides in a few short years.

Details on the many aspects of Ridgeview Rides have to be worked out with qualified instructors and FVSD personnel in the coming weeks.  We look forward to this amazing opportunity.

Wow.  I can hardly believe that the summer break is already over! I am very honored to be your Principal and excited to get started with the 2018-2019 school year with Mr. Corey Steeves as my Assistant Principal.  We have amazing students, staff, parents and community to build on and I intend to use the strengths of all of these very important people to make Ridgeview a great place to work, learn, and visit.

We  welcome a few new staff this year and we are very pleased to have them join us here at RVCS.  Mr. Steeves is new to the position of AP but has spent many years next door at LCPS.  Miss Amber Cooze joins us from Ottawa, ON. to teach grade 5. Mr. Brian Ward is also new in grade 5 this year. Mrs. Shannon Peters, who we all know very well is joining us in grade 6 this year.  Mrs. Leona Schmidt is back to RVCS after a few years at LCPS, as a Special Needs Assistant. We also have a new Child Circle Worker this year, Ms. Taryn Driedger and a new Student Wellness Coach, Mrs. Lindsey Bandy.  

Some changes in Staff include the following:  Mr. Travis Hardy has moved to Hill Crest and we are happy that Mrs. Sulis could step in as our new Phys. Ed. teacher and Athletic Director.  Miss. Skinner has moved from Grade 7 to take a position in grade 4. We have Mrs. Thompson moving from grade 4 to grade 7 as the L.A. and Social teacher.  Mr. Thompson will be doing grade 7 Social and Mr. Weller moves from grade 5 to grade 7 Math and Science. Mrs. Cardinal is taking on the position of Inclusive Education Coordinator for this year to cover for Mrs. Acreman's maternity  leave. So, all-in-all, lots of changes and excitement heading into 2018-2019.

Ridgeview has many exciting opportunities to offer our students. The staff at RVCS strive to offer the highest quality of education to our students, while also helping to develop them into responsible citizens. At RVCS we offer a number of unique programs that focus on positive character development, including Care in Action, where students volunteer their time to pay forward acts of kindness, an active Student Representative Council that serves as the voice of the student body and engages in activities such as school spirit promotion, student resource purchasing, leading of assemblies, and facilitation of focus groups. Within our grade 7 classes we have Positive Leaders where students work towards completing volunteer hours and becoming leaders throughout the building. Within classrooms teacher promote daily engagement and quality instruction.

I am truly looking forward to a great  year with students, staff, parents, and the community. At Ridgeview we welcome all parents/guardians and encourage volunteer involvement wherever possible. Caring and involved parents/guardians are a critical part of a successful school.

School will be starting on Tuesday, September 4th.  Hope you had a great summer break.

Mr. Steeves and I are excited to have a great year this year.
