    Posted by Ashley LaRiviere on 12/18/2020
    Schools across the district were busy throughout the day on December 16 as they distributed meal boxes, fresh produce, and activity kits for students in preparation for winter break.

    The fresh produce boxes contained 8-12 different types of produce from local and neighboring state farms. A special thanks to our local farmers; McIlrath Family Farms, Pacific Fresh Produce, and the Washington State Department of Agriculture. We also appreciate the staff support from Crafted Eatery & Single Hill for helping pack the boxes. Thank you for partnering together to provide nutritious local produce for our community!

    The Yakima Schools Foundation handed out student activity kits that shared information on how to practice #SafeCelebrations while having fun over winter break. The kits included coloring pages and mask making supplies. Students and/or parents can comment on any YSD #SafeCelebrations social media post with a picture of their coloring page or mask to be entered to win a prize! Winners will be announced on social media on January 4.

  • Ridgeview Elementary Awarded Art From The Washington State Arts Commission

    Posted by Ashley LaRiviere on 12/1/2020

    In December 2019, Ridgeview Elementary's application for the Art In Public Places Program by The Washington State Arts Commission was approved. This program invites eligible schools to apply for commissioned artwork. The artwork is currently being prepared for installation and is scheduled to be installed in January 2021.

    The image below shows the complete art collection that will be installed at Ridgeview Elementary. To learn more about the artwork and artists, click here

    art collection

    Washington State is one of the few states that place public art in public schools. The State Art Collection includes nearly 5,000 artworks, located where people study, work and live. The public selects and owns the Collection. Artworks are found in state agencies, public schools, universities, and community colleges. The Art In Public Places Program creates an opportunity for school districts to acquire significant, site-responsive artwork for their schools.

  • Ridgeview Collaborates with Community Faith Partner

    Posted by K.C. Mitchell on 11/5/2020

    Ridgeview and their community faith partner, Wesley United Methodist Church, recently collaborated on two projects.  Wesley UMC donated hundreds of child-sized masks to Ridgeview.  Ridgeview staff, including assistant principal Mrs. Hovsepian (pictured below), distributed the masks to YSD families.  Hundreds of children in Yakima have new masks thanks to this collaboration.

    The second project involved the creation of a "Little Free Pantry".  These pantries are similar to the Little Free Libraries found in neighborhoods across the country.  However, instead of sharing books the Little Free Pantry shares non-perishable foods.  People in need can visit the pantry and take food.  Working with Wesley UMC member Amy Halvorson Miller, Mr. Mitchell built and helped install a Little Free Pantry at Wesley.  Mrs. Hovsepian is also coordinating the collection of non-perishable foods at Ridgeview which will be donated to the Little Free Pantry.

    Thank you Wesley United Methodist Church for your connection to our community and Ridgeview!
