Gear Up for Numbers and Nachos was the theme of Rippleside’s Fall Family Fun Night hosted by Rippleside’s Parent Advisory Council and supported by Rippleside’s Parent Teacher Organization. The event was held Oct. 28 with 110 students and their families joining in on the fun. A taco in a bag meal was served before students rotated through three stations.
Engineering was explored in the science room with science teacher, Brenda Besch. The students were able to maneuver gears on the magnetic wall and learned a program called Code.org with media specialist, Jenny Mickelson. Rippleside principal, Andy Dokken, met with parents to talk about the many programs Rippleside offers. Rippleside’s teachers and support staff taught grade level math games to the students.
