Dear Sunset Ridge Families, 

This is our last newsletter of the school year. We look forward to seeing many of you back in the Fall, we wish the very best to those of you who are moving or whose kids are moving on to middle school, and, on behalf of our staff, THANK YOU for being such a wonderful, supportive, and kind community! It's an honor to be a part of it, and I know our teachers are so thankful for the support they feel!  

And, of course, thank you to Joy, Lindsay, and the whole PTA for their support and investments in making this such a great community to be a part of! 

Maybe I'll get to see you over the summer - if you liked The N'achos, we'll be at the Union on June 8th from 7:00 - 10:00, and my other band (The Whiskey Farm) is playing there on July 18th (same time).

Sunset Spotlight

Let’s give a Sunset Ridge Shout Out to our AMAZING student teachers!

Ms. H and Ms. Melgaard have been with us this semester as they finish their final preparation in becoming educators.

They have both graduated!

Ms. Melgaard finished her time in Mrs. Schelitzche’s classroom and Ms. H is with us through the end of the year in Ms. Lerum’s classroom!

We’re excited to have great new teachers in our Community!


Notes From The Nurse

Hello from the Health Office!

The end of the year is quickly approaching! The Health Office would like to get your medications back to you before Summer Vacation. 

Health Services requires that all medication be reclaimed from the health office by the parent/guardian or it will be discarded at the end of the school year. For safety reasons, we do not send any medication home with students. It is the responsibility of the parent/guardian to make arrangements for pick up of any remaining medication. We ask that emergency medications remain at school until the last day of school. If you are unable to pick your child’s medication up by the last day, please call the Health Office at 608-829-9347 to make other arrangements to avoid discarding the medication. Health Office Hours: 7:30 a.m.- 3:00 p.m.

For “as needed” medications, please feel free to pick up anytime that may be convenient for you prior to the last school day, Friday, June 7th. The health office is open Monday through Friday from 7:30 am until 3:00 pm. Another great time to pick up medications is May 31st during the Hot Dog Picnic! 

For parents of children with daily scheduled medication, we will be reaching out to form a plan to get the medication back to you. Or feel free to reach out to us too!

Thank you,

Nurse Sonya and Health Assistant Jenna

Senior Walk at Sunset Ridge

A Sunset Ridge/MCPASD tradition that we hope to carry on for years to come!
