Mountain Ridge PTSA Post February 2017

The PTSA Post is a short monthly newsletter keeping you informed about activities that bring parents, teachers, and students together.
Spirit Tee Blowout: $5 this Thursday February 16 3-8PM during Student Led Conferences. Men’s, women’s, and youth sizes (see attached image)
Spirit Day this Friday! February 17. Wear your husky tees or other school spirit wear for delicious prizes during both lunches.
Jr. Leadership Meeting: Wednesday March 1. Both lunches. Conference Room Main Office. You won’t want to miss.
New Board for 2017-18: This year’s PTSA board is semi-dissolving and new leadership is needed for next year. Open positions are: president, president-elect, secretary, and treasurer. (Might sound scary but it’s really not. We promise.) These current members have exhausted their term limits and can no longer serve in these positions. Some of them will stay on to help the new leadership in other capacities. Please consider volunteering or pass this on to someone who might like to. Mountain Ridge is an outstanding school with amazing students and administration and your contribution will make it even better. Come to our next board meeting to see what we’re all about. Wednesday March 8 10:00AM Conference Room Main Office. Or, contact Charmian Christensen at or 801-361-0276.
Service Club: All students are invited every Tuesday both lunches in D Hall. Blankets and teddy bears have already been sent to Syrian and Iraqi refugees abroad. Come check out more projects going on now. Contact Jill Brown if you’d like to be a parent volunteer:
Shoe Drive Is Still On: Bring gently used and new shoes to the school anytime thru March 1 and leave them in the giant shoe box in the commons. You can also drop them off at Ridley’s in Highland. From there they will be sent to various third world countries: Thanks for the great donations already coming in!
