Let's Move the Arrow! 

Stitch Count made an awesome sign that is now displayed in front of the school to keep everyone updated on the progress of the Annual Fund. The Annual Fund is an ongoing fundraising effort that raises dollars exclusively for Ridgecroft's operating budget. This means Annual Fund dollars pay for books in the library, P.E. equipment, paint brushes, science supplies, textbooks, and much, much more. 

Gifts to the Annual Fund are tax deductible and can be made online, over the phone or by mail. The 2018-2019 Annual Fund ends on June 30th, so help us #MoveTheArrow and get closer to our goal of $70,000. Please contact Claire if you have any questions about your gift. 
Science Fair Success 
Mrs. Bowman organized a Science Fair at Ridgecroft for the 4th and 5th graders! The students worked on their projects for weeks, and learned about the scientific method, recording results and writing conclusions. The ir projects were on display in the student commons and students also presented their projects to their classmates. 

The three winners (Kate Chamblee, Laurali Lassiter and Callie Liverman) advanced to the Northeast Regional Science Fair held in Greenville on February 16th. The girls expressed how fun it was and how they got to see a lot of projects and learn about bacteria, how good/bad bacteria is formed, and much more!
