Thank you for supporting the 2020-2021 Annual Fund!
This last year has been a true test for us all, and the support of the entire PRS community has played a critical role in our school’s ability to thrive. Every gift to the Annual Fund, no matter the size, made an immediate impact on our students’ daily lives and helped us face the challenges of a year like no other. Thank you to everyone who stepped up to support the 2020-2021 Annual Fund at Pacific Ridge School!
Send Us Your Student's COVID Vaccine Information
As vaccine eligibility is expanding, many of our students are receiving their shots. Please help us update our health records by emailing a copy of your child's COVID immunization card to nursing@pacificridge.org after each (if applicable) of their shots. Thank you for your cooperation.

Congratulations to the Class of 2021!
Last week, the Pacific Ridge School community came together to celebrate 108 seniors from the Class of 2021. Faculty, students and their families gathered on the athletic field for a j unique and jubilant, physically distanced ceremony. Commencement kicked off with a welcome message from Head of Upper School, Allegra Molineaux followed by reflections from Student Body President Shanyce McCullough, Senior Class President Grace Piscitello, and Student Body Vice President Jammal Bola-Akindele. Dr. Ogle gave the Commencement address, followed by a joyful performance of “Tongue Tied” by members of the senior class. After diplomas were presented, Senior statements were given by Jaiv Doshi, Jordan Becknell, Martha Contreras, Shea Gahr, Julian Stern, and Kate Ohlweiler. The Pacific Ridge vocal ensemble sang “Irish Blessing” and Assistant Head of Upper School Alfie Hobbs gave closing remarks and supervised the celebratory tossing of caps. Congratulations to our newest graduates!
Faculty Dance Into Seniors' Hearts
Faculty and staff performed a fantastic dance to Dua Lipa's Levitating to wish the seniors a fond farewell! Thank you to alumnus Matthew Cheung '18, who filmed and edited the video.

Rocket Creation and Launching
Rocket creation deals with physics, artistry, engineering, and propelling imaginations into the future. During this summer camp, all students who join will be able to build, design, and launch their own rockets from starter kits. These activities will allow the students to learn about the intricacy of delicate craftsmanship as well as resilience. Students will be able to customize their rockets with spray paint and other details like stickers and fun colors. This camp will allow students to bring their math and science interests into reality and utilize the power of the rocket to defy gravity on the launch pad. Each student will create, launch, and keep their own rockets at the end of camp.
