2022-2023 will begin with 'TRAIL Days'!

Dear West Ridge Families,

We are excited to announce that your K-5 student’s 2022-23 school year will begin with a special Trail Day!  This day is designed to engage them in learning experiences that will:

  • help them build connections with their teacher and each other;
  • help them learn about our Trail Traits;
  • teach them schoolwide procedures and behavior expectations!

Because this type of connection building and learning is best accomplished in smaller groups of students, we are adjusting the first day of school schedule for all K-5 Wildcats so that only half of each class will attend school on either Thursday, August 11th or Friday, August 12th.  Your child is assigned to attend one of these specific Trail Days as outlined in the details below.  All K-5 students will attend school on Tuesday, August 16th.  

====================================================================================

Here are the key details you need to know about Trail Day for your student:

  • Trail Day is a required day of attendance for all K-5 students.
  • Students only attend their assigned Trail Day.  The day they don’t attend does not count against their attendance record.
  • The bell schedule and all typical school services (transportation, breakfast, lunch) are the same on Trail Day as they are on a regular school day.
    • Gentle start - 7:40-7:50 AM
    • School starts at 7:50 AM
    • Dismissal - 3:30 PM.
  • Trail Day for students with last names starting with A-L is Thursday, August 11, 2022.
  • Trail Day for students with last names starting with M-Z is Friday, August 12, 2022.
  • Regular school attendance in full classes for all K-5 students begins on Tuesday, August 16, 2022.

Trail Day is going to be a special day for all our K-5 Wildcats to feel connected to their class, their teachers and their school community, whether they are brand new to West Ridge or have been here for years!  We thank you in advance for ensuring that your cub is part of the fun on their Trail Day!

Finally, please watch the email you have affiliated with Infinite Campus closely in late July for the back to school message from West Ridge that will contain all of the additional key information you will need to start the school year!

If you have any questions about Trail Day, please feel free to give me a call at 720-685-5301 any time.

Sincerely,

Dear West Ridge Families,

Es complace anunciar que el año escolar 2022-23 de su estudiante K-5 comenzará con un Trail Day especial!  Este día está diseñado para involucrarlos en experiencias de aprendizaje que:

  • ayúdelos a construir conexiones con su maestro y entre sí;
  • ayúdelos a aprender sobre nuestros rasgos de trail;
  • cadales procedimientos y expectativas de comportamiento en toda la escuela!

Debido a que este tipo de construcción de conexiones y aprendizaje se logra mejor en grupos más pequeños de estudiantes, estamos ajustando el primer día de horario escolar para todos los K-5 Wildcats para que solo la mitad de cada clase asista a la escuela el jueves 11 de agosto o el viernes 12 de agosto. Se asigna a su hijo para asistir a uno de estos Días de Trail específicos como se describe en los detalles a continuación.  Todos los estudiantes de K-5 asistirán a la escuela el martes 16 de agosto.

Estos son los detalles clave que necesita saber sobre el Día del Sendero para su estudiante:

  • Trail Day es un día requerido de asistencia para todos los estudiantes de K-5.
  • Los estudiantes solo asisten a su Trail Day asignado.  El día que no asisten no cuenta para su registro de asistencia.
  • El horario de la campana y todos los servicios escolares típicos (transporte, desayuno, almuerzo) son los mismos en el Día del Sendero que en un día escolar regular.
    • Gentle start - 7:40-7:50 AM
    • La escuela comienza a las 7:50 AM
    • Dismissal - 3:30 PM.
  • Trail Day para estudiantes con apellidos que comienzan con A-L es el jueves 11 de agosto de 2022.

  • La asistencia regular a clases completas para todos los estudiantes de K-5 comienza el martes 16 de agosto de 2022.

Trail Day va a ser un día especial para que todos nuestros K-5 Wildcats se sientan conectados con su clase, sus maestros y su comunidad escolar, ya sea que sean nuevos en West Ridge o hayan estado aquí durante años.  ¡Le agradecemos de antemano por asegurarse de que su cachorro sea parte de la diversión en su Trail Day!
