Ridge Ribbons

Ridge Ribbons

Ridge 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.

When 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.
