Dear District 8 Family, As we approach the beginning of the 2020-2021 School year we are making plans and getting schools ready for our students. We are staying up to date on current trends and practices regarding the COVID-19 Pandemic. At this time, Governor Burgum and State Superintendent Baesler have not laid out any formal plans for the reopening of schools. We expect to have official guidelines by the end of July and we will keep you posted on what the start of our school year will look like.

Dear Eighth Grade Parents, I know that the end of this school year has not been anything any of us have planned or anticipated. We are indeed living in strange times and we are learning to go with the flow. With that said, I want to congratulate you on a job well done. Your 8th Grade student is about to end one journey and begin another as they graduate from Missouri Ridge Middle School and move on to high school. You and your child’s teachers have worked hard to get them where they are today. You should be proud of them and their accomplishments. This year’s Commencement Ceremony will be very different. In an effort to comply with State Social Distancing Guidelines, we are planning a Drive-Thru Graduation on Tuesday, May 19th, beginning at 6:00pm. We’ll have students divided into groups (by last name). You will drive your car through the bus loop. Teachers and staff will be there to cheer on each student as they drive thru. We’ll have music and decorations. Homeroom teachers will come up to your car and hand the graduate their diploma and any awards they have won. Unfortunately, this has to be a quick in-and-out around the bus loop, so we ask that all students and families remain in their cars. Graduates are asked to arrive at the following times on May 19th: Last Name, A-D: 6:00pm to 6:20pm Last Name, E-L: 6:20pm to 6:40pm Last Name, M-S: 6:40pm to 7:00pm Last Name, T-Z: 7:00pm to 7:20pm We invite you and your family to decorate your car and join in the festivities. Hope to see you there.

October 16, 2019 Dear Parents, As we come to the end of our first Quarter of school and look forward to the next nine weeks, it’s time for Parent & Teacher Conferences. We are excited for you to take the time to come in and meet with your child’s teacher(s) and see how they are progressing this school year. At Missouri Ridge School, we have high expectations for all of our students to find success and a sense of accomplishment. That is why we employ the team philosophy. You are a part of your child’s academic team, and we will frequently reach out and extend opportunities for you to have input and be a part of your child’s success here at Missouri Ridge. Parent-Teacher Conferences are scheduled for Thursday, October 24th, 2019 from 4:00pm until 7:00pm. Conferences will be scheduled for students who are struggling academically or behaviorally. However, if you wish to meet with your child’s teacher(s) for any reason, please feel free to call the school secretary to make an appointment. Parents without an appointment will NOT be able to meet with teachers. During the conference, you will receive your child’s report card and be able to discuss it with the teacher(s). Report cards of students struggling academically will NOT be sent home with students or by mail. Report cards of student who do not need to have a conference will be sent home with the student on Friday, October 25th. Conferences are 10 minutes long, so please make sure you are conscious of the time so that other parents can visit with the teachers. In addition to the Parent Teacher Conferences, the District 8 PTO is sponsoring a Book Fair that will run from Tuesday, October 22nd until Friday, October 25th. It will be held in the Missouri Ridge Library/Media Center from 7:30am until 4:00pm, and during Parent Teacher Conferences until 7:00pm. Thank you again for your cooperation. As always, we look forward to continuing to work with you and your child to ensure that his/her time at Missouri Ridge is a successful and positive experience. Sincerely, Steven A.
