to join the Lakota Ridge Junior School PTO is $10.00 and includes a
student directory. We also sell Ridge spiritwear. We look forward to
your support. 100% of the membership fee stays here at Ridge to support
our teachers and students throughout the school year. The PTO supports
our community by making donations to various charitable organizations,
purchasing items for Ridge classrooms and providing student services and
activities. Being a part of the PTO helps connect you to your school
and gives you the opportunity to become involved and find out what’s
going on in your child’s school life.
Listed below are many of the activities that our PTO provides:
Spiritwear Sales - Watch for new items for sale in November - in time for Holiday shopping!
Academic Award Ice Cream Social—The PTO provides ice cream sundaes to students who maintain a 3.75 grade average at the end of the 1st and 2nd semesters.
Homework Incentive Lunch—The
PTO provides pizza lunch three times a year (after the grading periods
end) to students who have turned in 100% of their homework in at least
three core academic subjects.
Dances—Dances are held
immediately after school in the gym for Lakota Ridge students. A DJ
provides music and concessions are available for a nominal fee. We ask
that students be picked up promptly after the dance ends (4:00 pm).
Tickets can ONLY be pre-purchased at lunch the day before and day of the
dance for $5. NO tickets will be sold at the door. All dances are
chaperoned by Ridge administrators and parent volunteers.
Ridge Ribbon Program—Teachers
occasionally hand out Ridge Ribbon coupons to students that have done
something above and beyond their normal everyday responsibilities. These
coupons are handed out at the teacher’s discretion. Students that
receive a Ridge Ribbon coupon fill out their name and homeroom number
and deposit the coupon in the Ridge Ribbon box, which is located in the
attendance office. Monthly drawings are then held for gift certificates
good at area merchants.
8th Grade Day—The PTO provides all 8th grade students with lunch and music the last day of school.
8th Grade Dance
—The Ridge PTO joins with Plains Junior School’s PTO to put on an
evening dance in the spring for all 8th grade students. Music is
