  • "The world is full of kind people.. If you can't find one be one" (Unknown)

    Posted by YSD Stories Account-Jenny Tenney on 12/17/2018

    At Ridgeview a group of students have put this quote into action by creating the Random Acts of Kindness Club.  The students volunteered to give up their lunch recess twice a week to meet and work towards furthering the culture of kindess at Ridgeview Elementary.  The club is part of the ongoing work of Jeff Clark and Becky Fernandez, two counselors who staff the calm room.  The calm room welcomes students who need a place to refocus their energy as well as presenting anti-bullying and personal space lessons.  The calm room is a vital part of the culture of Ridgeview Elementary.Kindess Club

  • Enhancing Math Skills at Ridgeview

    Posted by YSD Stories Account on 12/17/2018

    Students at Ridgeview use the computer to enhance their math skills. IOed is an online program that offers students an exciting fun way to practice their math skills and give teachers the data they need to meet individual student needs.  In this picture the students in Mrs. Kelly McIlrath's third grade class, are practicing their multiplication and division skills.  Multiplication and division are important third grade concepts that all children should have a solid understanding of.  Ridgeview students use a variety of methods to increase their math skills and IOed is just one way they work to improve.

  • Drive-In Graduation Events Canceled (5/26/20)

    May 26, 2020, Yakima, WA - At this time, the Yakima School District regrets that we have canceled drive-in graduation events for Eisenhower, Davis, and Stanton.  In recent communications with the Yakima Health District and guidelines set forth by the governor, we have determined that any celebration, other than virtual, is highly unlikely. The District, in conjunction with high school leadership at Eisenhower, Davis, Stanton and Yakima Online, will not facilitate or support a drive-in or virtual watch party, due to the growing concern of the number of infections in Yakima County and our lingering Phase 1 reopening status.

    While the district is still hopeful that a June 13 procession down Yakima Avenue to honor our graduates could happen, there are growing doubts, due to the status of Yakima County as a COVID-19 hotspot. This processional is something that we know our graduating seniors deserve but it may not be possible. We hope to provide updated information on the possibility of the June 13 processional on June 1.

    Class of 2020 Seniors – please check your specific high school’s website for more graduation details. www.YakimaSchools.org

  • June 17 is the last day of school for YSD students

    According to guidance from OSPI, unless districts can show that student learning was NOT impacted by the emergency closures (either loss of instructional days, loss of instructional hours per day, or both) districts are required to add five (5) days at the end of the school year. For the Yakima School District, that means June 17th will be the final day of distance learning for the 2019-20 school year. Support will be available to students via distance learning through June 17.

  • Be Counted! 2020 Census

    Census 2020 The census is a way for our community to seek the necessary financial support from the government that it needs.  Our schools depend on the census count for accurate program funding. In mid-March, you will receive an invitation to participate in the census from the Census Bureau. Be sure to count everyone in your household - even infants.  Responding to the census is the law, however, it is against the law for the Census Bureau to inquire about personal information such as immigration status.  It is illegal for the Census Bureau to pass on your contact information to other government entities. They use your contact info, such as your name and address, to know if you have already been counted. Once you have responded, you will no longer receive notices from the Census Bureau and a census worker will not come to your home.  If you have any questions, we have put together videos and information for you online at www.YakimaSchools.org/2020census
