We have amazing students in Green Ridge. In recent years, we have recognized one elementary and one JH/HS student as Students of the Month. This year we are doubling our list each month to recognize some of our outstanding students. We are dividing our selections into four groups now: Primary (K-3), Upper Elem (4-6), JH (7-9), and HS (10-12). The 2023-2024 started off strong with a solid group of students that were nominated for this awesome recognition. However, only one from each group can be recognized as the outstanding student of the month for September. This month our students Charlotte Maxon (2nd grade), Viktoriia Sviderko (4th) , Angelina Orlov (7th), and Kenda Grose (12th) were the chosen students for September. Charlotte Maxon I am picking this student because she is a STAR!! She is new to Green Ridge this year and has done an awesome job getting in the grove of our school and fits in perfectly! Charlotte understands our tiger stripes. She can always be caught doing the right thing. She is a great example to all students! Charlotte is responsible, and very respectful. I can always count on Charlotte to have a positive attitude and do the right thing. Charlotte puts effort forth on all assignments and class activities. She is always willing to help. She is a very trustworthy student to have in class and overall a great student. Anyone would be lucky to Have this spunky, sharp, creative second grader Miss Charlotte Maxon in class. Viktoriia Sviderko I chose Viktoriia because she struggles with the English language and she will try her best on everything she has in front of her to do. She is willing to try different things that we come up with and will not complain at all. Even though things are more challenging for her, she gives 100% and smiles the whole time. Her attitude makes the difference in her learning. Angelina Orlov Angelina is always respectful to both teachers and students in the classroom, hallways, and anywhere else she goes. She is a great student that takes an active role in her education. Angelina takes notes, asks questions, and engages in lessons and her homework is always completed on time. She is a model student in every way and a great role model for all other Tigers! Kenda Grose This student has been an exceptional addition to my classroom since their arrival at Green Ridge. I have them in my room a couple of times a day in various capacities. One such capacity is later in the day when their hour overlaps with the beginning band students. Kenda couldn't have been more thrilled to be able to share her love of music and play an instrument with the younger kids. She was instrumental in recruiting a couple of our 5th graders to play the french horn as she does. Kenda has really taken an interest and hands-on approach with getting all of our beginning band students going on their instruments. Congrats to all of our Tigers!

PINK VOLLEYBALL NIGHT The volleyball team has chosen Alisha Anderson as the recipient of our pink game proceeds this year. Alisha is a single mother fighting stage four breast cancer. She has been fighting cancer for over six years now. It is in her bones and liver. With chemo on and off for so many years taking a toll on her body, she has since sought out natural methods to fight her cancer and gain some strength back before getting back in the infusion chair. Unfortunately none of this is covered by insurance. Alisha enjoys gardening and spending time with her family in her spare time for as long as she is able! The team appreciates your support in our efforts to give back to someone fighting cancer. It's not too late to place your pink shirt order!

Kaysinger Volleyball Pool Play Lady Tigers fell victim to some payback from the Cole Camp Bluebirds Thursday to kick-off off the Kaysinger Volleyball Tournament.  Cole Camp used short-serving strategies to keep the Lady Tigers off balance losing both sets 23-25, 21-25.  Nevaeh Washington, Sydney Gordon, and Emery Cannon all finished with 5 kills each and Nevaeh added 2 aces from the serving line.   Lady Tigers regrouped in the following pool play game against LaMonte taking care of business to win 25-12, 25-21.  Washington and Cannon led the offense again with 7 kills each and Abby Warner added 2 kills and 2 aces.   Lady Tigers finished the night  fighting off the scrappy Lincoln Cardinals with 25-8, 25-18 wins.  Cannon took charge at the net finishing with 6 kills, and Washington swung for 5 kills.  Mallory Reed added to the points serving 3 aces along with Washington’s 3 aces from the service line.   Lady Tigers will play Saturday at 9am to begin the tournament bracket play in Cole Camp.  Let’s Go Tigers!!

Mrs. Warner's students have been practicing several great reading strategies at her reading table: looking at the first letter, looking through the WHOLE word, covering part of a word, using picture clues, and a favorite...chunky monkey--looking for "chunks" or parts of words that students know to help figure out new words! Parents, these are great strategies to use at home as well!!!

Ms. Dailey's students were working hard during guided reading time! A small group worked with her at her reading table while the others practiced independent reading activities at their desks. Ask your student how to "tap out a word!"

From Mrs. Donaldson: "Biology completed a lab today called "Murder and a Meal." We used chemical indicators to check for the presence of macromolecules in the 'stomach contents' of our victim to solve our murder mystery." We may have some future forensic detectives in our midst!!!

Mrs Shoop (2nd Grade) has been keeping word work engaging this week! Students had to roll cubes for onset (beginning letter)and rime (ending letter pattern). They had to write and read their letter pattern and decide if they had created a real word or nonsense word. Other students worked independently with support from our high school TA! GR8 work, Tigers!

Ms. Treuner (2nd Grade) covered a lot of skills during her guided reading group time! Students worked with letter tiles for word work, read a story, completed a five finger retell, and even used some special reading tools. They segmented sounds with magnetic chips and scooped up the word with a "magic" wand! Students waiting for their turn at the table completed independent reading activities on their chromebooks.

Mrs. Sleeper, our Title 1 teacher, has been working hard with Mrs. Hammers to support teachers with our new testing system. They have put in countless hours learning about the new STAR assessments, testing students, analyzing beginning of the year data, deciding on interventions for various students, setting individual student goals, and developing reading plans as needed. Mrs. Sleeper is already using her expertise in phonemic awareness and phonics to support students.

Ms. Kelley was utilizing a variety of strategies with her beginning readers yesterday. A fan favorite was the enlarged "Scrabble-like" Blending Board! She pointed to each tile and said the sounds with students. Then, she slid her hand across the word as students read the word! GR8 modeling!

Mrs. Hilt's 3rd graders had a great discussion about their nonfiction book during guided reading today while other students read independently. The highlight of the small group time was a super engaging activity with syllables and index cards! They liked it so much that they asked to do it twice! It was all hands on deck!
