DAILY ANNOUNCEMENTS

January 17, 2019

As you know by now, we have added some speed bumps to the entrance and exit of the student parking lot.  The intent of speed bumps is to slow down driving in the lot, and it works. To keep our parking lot safe and to avoid any damage to your vehicle, remember to drive very slowly over any of these speed bumps.  Thanks for doing the right thing.

Come one, come all to the 2019 Elective Fair!  The Elective Fair will be taking place during both lunches this Friday, Jan. 18th.  With registration just around the corner, this will give you a chance to see many of the amazing electives that are available here at Desert Ridge High School.

THE DRHS TALENT SHOW IS COMING!

Do you have a talent?  Can you sing, dance, tell jokes, or entertain?  

Auditions begin Friday, January 18 2:30pm-5pm in the cafeteria!

PLEASE SIGN UP BEFORE THURSDAY, January 17 in Room 2233.

We are excited to see all the Talented JAGS!

#GOJAGS

HOOPSCOMING BONFIRE IS HERE on FRIDAY!

On Friday night come out to support our Boys Basketball Team take on Highland at DRHS!

Only $1 to enter the game for DRHS students with ID

Varsity game starts at 7pm, come decked out in your JAG gear.

Following the game is our annual Hoopscoming Bonfire with music, food trucks, friends, and FIRE!

Dress warm and come out for a fun evening.

We will be holding a DRHS RELAY interest meeting on TUESDAY, 1/29 at 2:30pm in room 2233 for any students, clubs, teachers interested in signing their team up.  We are hoping to have 10 teams represent DRHS and raise $20k. I am confident if we work together we can surpass these goals and help support more families.

Please consider forming a team and joining us, the fight against cancer never stops.  The event is March 29 at 6pm-midnight at Gilbert High School.


NHS is holding free peer tutoring twice a week; English on Tuesdays, Math and Science on Thursdays for students of all capabilities. Locations are posted on the bulletin boards around the school.

Students need to have their ID cards every time they get breakfast & lunch.


As you know, the prevalence of vaping on school campuses across the country is on the rise.  Unfortunately, we are no exception. Not only is the use of vape products a terrible health decision, it also has significant discipline consequences to include suspension from school and referral to a hearing officer.  Simply put, it's not worth it. Do the right thing for yourself and others. Keep vaping off of our campus.

Safety and Security at The Ridge.  As you know, safety and security on school campuses across the country is on everyone's mind.  What can you do to help? Here's a few things:

1. When you are leaving campus through one of our gates and no one is behind you, please take the time to close it.

2. Make sure you have your student ID with you at all times and be prepared to show it when asked.

3. If you notice something or someone on campus that looks suspicious in any way, report it to an adult so it can be investigated quickly

4. If and when an emergency event occurs, like an evacuation or lock down,  listen closely to the directions given by the adults around you.

Thanks for taking an active role in keeping our school safe and secure
