Five of our 5th grade students participated in the count STEAM expo in March.
Carlie Harwood, Logan Van Bourgondien and Dustin Philpot toured AJA Video Systems and then took the TechTest Jr. Carlie Harwood placed first in the group.
Carley Harwood, Landon Highsmith and Gina Genovese competed in the team math section. They worked for several weeks during lunch and afterschool to solve a multistep math problem and present a complete solution for display. The team took home the SILVER medal.
Great job Eagles!

Every year, each school chooses a teacher to be recognized as the Teacher Who Makes a Difference. This year, we have chosen Mrs. Kerry Kelley.
Mrs. Kelley is our teacher for transitional kindergarten and intervention. She has taught 1st, 2nd, and 3rd grade for the district. I am sure that each of her 31 classes, 25 of which have been in the Pleasant Ridge School District, have expressed the same gratitude for her care and compassion. What is the first thing her co-workers say when asked about Mrs. Kelley? They all note how much she loves children and how kind she is to everyone. She approaches all of her teaching duties with a positive energy. She is the first to volunteer to keep an after school homework club afloat, be the PTC rep or round up support for a colleague or a family in need. She has offered sincere and kind guidance to me in my first year as principal for which I am ever grateful. I asked her TK students what they think of their teacher. The most common words used were: 1. Helps 2. Loves 3. Hugs. That pretty much says it all about Mrs. Kelley.
The Higgins Diggins Lions Club supports our students with a reading incentive contest. For 30 days, students read and take A.R. tests. For every test passed, each student gets a ticket to put into a drawing for a Kindle. The Lion's donate one Kindle per grade level so there are 5 winners. Kelli Brooding, our librarian, reported that we had a 99% participation rate! That is AWESOME! She was so excited to acknowledge all of the readers, she secured funds from our PTC to purchase 18 gift certificates from The Book Seller in Grass Valley to reward even more readers.
The winners are:
1st -Khloe August
2nd -Kiara Glaspey
3rd -Nolan Heyl
4th -Curtis Huntsinger
