Ribbons are our way to recognize students who go above and beyond in
demonstrating the positive behaviors that Ridge encourages in all
students. These behaviors can fall under 3 categories of: being
responsible, being respectful, and being a problem solver. Teachers who
witness students demonstrating these characteristics will give that
student a ridge ribbon. Some past examples of
why students were recognized by their teachers include
excelling in class, helping out someone who dropped all
their books, remembering to get a test signed.
a student receives a Ridge Ribbon from a teacher
they should stop by and give their Ridge Ribbon to the counselor or to
someone in the guidance office. The Ridge Ribbons are placed in one of
four boxes based on the student's lunch. On Wednesday, during
each of the four lunches, the counselor or teachers draw two names from
each bucket. Those students each spin the prize wheel to earn a reward
for demonstrating positive character.
Prizes can include gift certificates to
Uno's, Skyline, Rockquest, Cincinnati Playhouse in the Park, or other
local restaurants or businesses. Some other prizes include the
privilege to eat lunch at a High-top table with friends or choosing a TV
station to watch during lunch.
