Message from the Principal

Welcome back to all of our students and families! Our 2018-19 school year is off and running. Our staff and students are continuing to become familiar with their new classrooms, new routines and expectations, along with new grade level content and friendships along the way. With just over one week in, here are some of our highlights:

  • Another successful two days of fall assessment conferences, with 97% of our families represented
  • We held our annual Red Carpet Welcome, with the NPHS Pep Band playing, as we celebrated our Falcon Ridge students.
  • Our Welcome Back Picnic took place, with perfect weather and great attendance from our families highlighting the night.

I'm asking families to consider participating in our 8th annual Brain Power Run being held at Trojan Stadium on Saturday, September 15. For more information, go to NPAEF-Brain Power Run. New Prague High School will also hold homecoming week celebrations during the week of September 24-28. During this week, Falcon Ridge will have 4th grade homecoming button sales, Trojan red and black Friday, and will watch the annual homecoming parade in front of our school.

Lifetouch yearbooks are available for online sales only at this time. Online code is 5732019. An informational flier will be sent home from your child's homeroom teacher soon. This is for online sales only, with the option to pay via cash or check coming later in the year, if needed. Basic yearbooks are $16 with additional options that can be added, if desired.

Thanks for all that you do!

Character Trait of the Month - September: Kindness

Each month at Falcon Ridge, we will be focusing on a character trait that we will be sharing with our students. For the month of September, we've chosen 'Kindness'.

Showing kindness means being considerate, courteous, helpful, and understanding of others; showing care, compassion, friendship, and generosity; and treating others as you would like to be treated.
