Ridglea Hills Angel Tree
Please consider helping one of our angels have a happy holiday!
Our angels were carefully and confidentially screened by administration and we are asking our parents, grandparents and neighbors who want to help a deserving child have a happy holiday to adopt an angel from our tree. We ask that you please follow the guidelines attached so that siblings on the tree will receive the same amount of gifts even when adopted by different families. Please bring your angel card and your unwrapped gifts to the library on Friday, December 13th.
If you have questions, please contact Mandy Thigpen at firstname.lastname@example.org or Erica Fisher at email@example.com or you can contact the school counselor, Matrail Rogers.

Dear Parents and Guardians:
The most important thing is safety first for our students! We have been collaborating with our Faculty and Staff, PTA President, Michelle Henderson, the City of Ft. Worth, and Shaun Burns, Arlington Heights Pyramid Area Advisor, and Officer Brooks of the Ft. Worth Police Department, to continue to improve our arrival and dismissal procedures to better accommodate our children and families. Please review and adhere to the following guidelines for the safety of the children for arrival and dismissal at our wonderful campus!
* The carpool line forms along Angus on the far right side of the road.
* Angus is a two way street, but now will have double no crossing lines so that the flow of
traffic will ensure efficiency and safety of the carpool process. F.Y.I., Officer Brooks will be present to ensure this process and violators could possibly be ticketed if the double lines are crossed.
* Remain in your car and refrain from "cutting" in line. Both of these items will result in
* Follow to the end of the loading zone toward Stonedale.
* Continue to pull forward and stop in the loading zone when directed to do so or in a case of
* Safety patrol students will assist your child while loading and unloading your vehicle.
* We CAN NOT load children in double-parked cars.
* We CAN NOT escort children across the street to a parent.
* Remember - cell phones are NOT permitted in school zones.
Bus procedures have changed. Buses will drop off in front in the morning and will pick up in the back parking lot in the afternoon.
Although we have a very efficient system in place, we are always looking for ways to improve our procedures for the betterment of our campus with invaluable input from all stakeholders in our learning community. It is very important to adhere to these rules in order to keep our children as safe as possible. The Ft. Worth police department will also be putting up new signs and providing officers in addition to Mr. Brooks to help us with our new changes.
We thank you in advance for your cooperation and look forward to seeing you all August 26, 2013, the first day of school!

RIDGLEA HILLS PARK
Ridglea Hills has many things of which we can be proud. Among these are one of the finest elementary schools in the city, two scenic lakes, Luther Lake and Bal Lake and Ridglea Hills Park with its panoramic views looking south and east.
Over the years we have found out that many residents, some long time, are not aware of it. During conversations with local media several years ago, many were astounded when they saw it and the view it afforded.
Your neighborhood association and the City of Fort Worth have worked together to install playground equipment and a covered pavilion for all to use. A tennis court is on the west end of the park.
It is very easy to find. You can get to it by driving south on Stonedale until it deadends. You can also go south on Angus to Cumberland, turn left in front of Ridglea Hills Elementary and turn right on Stonedale.
You can open the link on our website, entitled 'Boundaries' find our neighborhood map and easily locate the park.
It is a great place to go and get away from it. Grill hamburgers, visit with friends and family, watch your kids and grandkids run around and have a great time.
If you havent been there before, treat yourself and enjoy our park.
