Kelsey Anchors-Goodman Named Softball Coach for Ridgefield School District (Photo) - 11/13/19

Wednesday, November 13, 2019 – Ridgefield, WA - The Ridgefield School District has selected Kelsey Anchors-Goodman as Softball Coach for Ridgefield High School.  Anchors-Goodman comes to Ridgefield from North Valley High School in Grants Pass, Oregon where she was assistant coach for softball and girls’ basketball and an instructor in PE, health and strength/conditioning.  Last year, she coached baseball there as well, making history as Oregon’s first female coach of a boys’ baseball team.

“I am really excited to have the opportunity to continue building a program in Ridgefield that is on the rise, along with contributing to the success that this program has achieved over the last few years,” said Anchors-Goodman.

The daughter of the late RHS softball coach, Dusty Anchors and Lori Anchors, Anchors-Goodman is the youngest of four children.  She started playing T-Ball at the age of 4 and competitive softball at the age of 7.  She attended Olympic High School in Bremerton, setting school records in softball and was all-Olympic League her last two years, as well as all-state in her senior season.

Anchors-Goodman attended Oklahoma State University on a softball scholarship and holds a bachelor’s degree in Health Promotions and Education with an emphasis in Exercise Science.  She was the university’s top defensive softball centerfielder all four years and was on the team when it advanced to the Women’s College World Series in 2011.  Anchors-Goodman earned her teaching certificate at St. Martin’s University in Lacey in 2015 and worked as a substitute teacher and PE instructor at Central Kitsap Middle School prior to joining the staff at North Valley High School.

“The Ridgefield Athletic Department is beyond excited to announce Kelsey Anchors-Goodman as our new softball coach,” said Brynan Shipley, Ridgefield School District’s athletic director.  “Kelsey has a great deal of knowledge and experience in the sport.  Her impressive resume set her apart in the selection process, and her vision for the program is shared by many.  The fact that she is Coach Anchors’ daughter only makes it that much more special.  We are excited about the future of Ridgefield softball!”

In her free time, Anchors-Goodman loves to spend time with family and friends, playing competitive slow-pitch, being outdoors and traveling.

Ridgefield School District Honors November Employee and Students of the Month (Photo) - 11/12/19

Tuesday, November 12, 2019 -- Ridgefield, Washington – On November 12, Ridgefield School District officials recognized the November Employee and Students of the Month at the regular Board of Directors meeting.  

Employee of the Month

Gena Anderson, Head Secretary at South Ridge Elementary School, was selected as Employee of the Month.  She is not only the head secretary, but she also serves as chief question answerer, queen of the budget, and primary greeter of all guests to South Ridge.  Gena is always the first person to notice something that needs to be solved, and just takes care of it.  She never complains and still manages to make sure the school is running smoothly.  Over the course of her career in the Ridgefield School District, Gena has served as para-professional in special education, a one-on-one para for a particular student, and now as head secretary at South Ridge.  South Ridge would not be the same without Gena.  She loves all 554 of our students like they were her own, and the staff like family.

Students of the Month

Emmalinn Penner was selected as Student of the Month for the Early Learning Center.  Emmalinn is always ready to help her friends.  She is the first to help sad friends when they separate from their families.  Anytime anyone (including the teacher), needs anything, she always volunteers to help.  She helps friends follow the rules by stepping up and redirecting them, explaining why we can’t do something instead of telling the teacher what they did.  Emmalinn is an amazing example of a star student.

Adam Castillo, a first grader, is November’s Student of the Month at South Ridge Elementary School.  Adam arrives at school each day with a smile, ready to learn.  He is always eager to participate in any learning task, even when it is challenging, always trying his best.  Adam is learning to print his name in both capital and lowercase letters and is motivated to learn the letters of the alphabet.  He is focused on meeting his unique learning goals both inside and outside of the classroom.  South Ridge Elementary is very proud of Adam and his success at school!

Isabelle Tucker, a second grader, was selected at Union Ridge Elementary.  Isabelle is a great example of our Ridgefield agreements.  Respect:  Isabelle respects all her peers and teachers by helping others, following directions and doing what is right.  Resilient:  Isabelle is always willing to try new things even if she knows they are going to be hard for her.  She always has a great attitude towards learning and never gives up on things that are difficult.  Responsible:  Isabelle keeps herself accountable in getting her work done and stays focused when needed, making sure she is a good role model for her classmates and peers.  There are great things in the future for this young lady!  Great job Isabelle!

Cadence (Cadie) Clark, a sixth grader, was selected at Sunset Ridge Intermediate School.  Cadie is a perfect example of a responsible, respectful and resilient student.  She is kind and caring to everyone she meets and works hard to make those around her feel important.  Cadie is an engaged and curious learner in the classroom.  She asks questions, wonders about possibilities and works collaboratively with all of her classmates.  She takes great pride in her work, inside and outside of the classroom and always turns in outstanding work.  Her hard work and consistent kindness are just a few of the characteristics that make Cadie Clark an outstanding role model for all of sixth grade!

Sarah Proctor, a seventh grader, was chosen at View Ridge Middle School.  Sarah is a bright, upbeat, and mature student.  She not only contributes to all discussions, but she is an active participant working with partners and within groups.  She brings a positive vibe to her classes, making other students around her better students.  Sarah advocates for herself by asking questions and is more than willing to help others around her.  She is an avid reader, always looking for something new.  Eager to learn and ready for the next challenge, Sarah Proctor exemplifies respectfulness, responsibility and resilience!

Selecting one student out of 942 students at Ridgefield High School for Student of the Month is a difficult task.  While there are many students who exemplify this honor, senior Diego Morales stands out.  He is helpful and hard-working, and in addition, an all-around exemplary student.  Teachers describe Diego as “one of the most kind-hearted and appreciative students”, “a class act”, and “kind to everyone, every single day.”  He is the personification of resilience--a student who has overcome personal challenges with the help of family and friends.  Diego is involved in wrestling and choir.  His post-secondary plans include pursuing an apprenticeship program in the trades.

Special thanks to the local office of James Schmeling at Allstate Insurance Company, the Ridgefield Public Schools Foundation and Ridgefield Boosters for sponsoring the district’s recognition program this school year.

Friday, November 8, 2019 – Ridgefield, WA – The students at Union Ridge Elementary just completed their biggest Read-a-Thon fundraiser of the year, raising over $12,000 for the school!  To celebrate, they invited special guest readers this week for a fun reading day.

Guest readers included Mayor Don Stose, Ridgefield School Superintendent Nathan McCann, officers from the Ridgefield Police Department and the Cowlitz Indian Tribe, a hula instructor and Rally, the Ridgefield Raptors mascot.  Many parents read stories to the students as well.

The students dressed as their favorite character or wore their pajamas, and they also decorated their classroom doors with their favorite books and other fun literary themes.

Union Ridge Elementary is grateful to all who took part in the Read-a-Thon and celebration and to the Union Ridge Elementary PTO for their support of this successful fundraiser.

Lions Club Vision Screenings Make Sure Kids See Clearly (Photo) - 11/05/19

Tuesday, November 5, 2019  – Ridgefield, WA – Eighty percent of all visual impairment can be prevented or cured.  Detecting visual impairment while children are still in school can make a significant difference.  The Lions Club International makes vision screening part of its mission, and area Lions Clubs are making sure Ridgefield students are checked regularly.  

The process was quick and easy at View Ridge Middle School.  Seventh grade students lined up in the hallway, waiting their turn in the room.  Their names were checked off on a list, and they took turns sitting in a chair along a wall.  A volunteer stood a few feet in front of them, holding a device that looked like a giant ViewMaster with a smiley face on the lens.  “Look at the nose,” the volunteer said.  In just a few moments, each student had their vision screened and they could head back to class.  With the automated screening, volunteers know instantly whether the student’s eyes are fine or whether they need a referral to an optometrist. 

Over the years, Lions Club screenings nationwide have found not only thousands of kids who need glasses but also children with cancer, detached retinas, and childhood cataracts.  Lions volunteers are trained in how to use the specialized cameras to accurately screen kids for a wide range of potential eye issues. 

Lions Club member David Page brings the cameras from the Salmon Creek chapter; both Ridgefield and Salmon Creek Lions Club members volunteer to conduct the screenings.  The Salmon Creek Lions Club has been doing vision screenings across the region since 2015; by the end of this year, they will have completed more than 30,000 screenings.  The Ridgefield Lions Club has partnered with the schools since 2017 to screen 4,500 students in kindergarten through third grade, fifth grade, and seventh grade.

This valuable service to the community is conducted at no cost to the students or families.  Lions Clubs worldwide are known for their work to improve the lives of the visually impaired and prevent avoidable blindness.  Many thanks to the Lions Clubs in Ridgefield and Salmon Creek for helping Ridgefield students see clearly.

Camp counselors lead the crowd in a round of Cispus songs during a community campfire celebration in Ridgefield to commemorate 50 years of outdoor learning for Ridgefield students at Cispus Outdoor School.

Ridgefield Campfire Event at Abrams Park Celebrates 50 Years of Cispus Outdoor School (Photo) - 11/05/19

Tuesday, November 5, 2019 – Ridgefield, WA – Roaring campfires, camp songs, and roasted marshmallows are essential parts of Cispus.  So Ridgefield celebrated its 50th year of attending Cispus Outdoor School with a fun campfire event at Abrams Park.

Unfortunately, the park wasn’t the right venue for an actual bonfire.  But fire pits with wood fires subbed in, and the smoky smell was enough to evoke memories of camp, whether you attended this year or decades ago. 

Sunset Ridge Intermediate School principal Todd Graves recognized the community effort that goes into making Cispus happen.  “There are a lot of people that we need to thank tonight, and instead of me standing here and reading a list of names that would go on for hours and hours and hours, I just want to say thank you to everyone that has been involved with Cispus.” 

Two special awards were presented.  One award honored John Hudson, Sr., the principal who founded Cispus.  His granddaughters and great-granddaughters accepted the award.   The second award went to Allene Wodaege, who worked with Hudson to found and develop the program and served as the program director for 25 years.  Wodaege and her daughter, Carla Bonebrake, were there to accept the award. 

Much like at Cispus, the evening was filled with good food and lots of fun.  The Lions Club grilled delicious hot dogs and hamburgers for the large crowd.  Piles of marshmallows, chocolate, and graham crackers were ready for s’mores.  Kids and adults practiced roasting perfect golden marshmallows over the fire pits.  And the counselors from this year’s camp led the group in Cispus songs. 

People marveled at the fact Cispus had been around for 50 years and hoped it would be around for another 50.  They talked about their own memories of Cispus—as students, as counselors, as parents, as volunteers.  Cispus has become an essential part of the Ridgefield experience, one that so many people in our community treasure.  As the fires started to die down and the sun started to set, it felt like a little bit of Cispus magic was right there in Abrams Park.

South Ridge Elementary's Crochet Club Creates Community Connections (Photo) - 11/05/19

Tuesday, November 5, 2019 – Ridgefield, WA – The library is usually pretty quiet at South Ridge Elementary.  But the afterschool Crochet Club is lively.  Third graders Liberty Glessing and Marta Krawczyk are excitedly pulling out their projects.  Liberty is just learning to crochet and is working on a scarf.  Marta is in her second year of Crochet Club and just completed a bright orange headband.  “I joined Crochet Club because Marta wouldn’t stop talking about it!” Liberty joked.

But Liberty is joining Crochet Club for another reason too.  She is preparing to have surgery for a leg length discrepancy; the recovery will have her in a wheelchair for several months.  “I wanted to do something while I was in a wheelchair, so I wanted to learn,” she explained.  Her story gave the club the idea to do something positive for other kids in the hospital:  their next project will be crocheting hats for children at Doernbecher Children’s Hospital. 

This brings the Crochet Club full circle for librarian Emily Crawford.  Her own daughter had cancer and received hats at the hospital when she was going through chemotherapy.  “When my daughter lost her hair, so many people donated hats; I knew it was something I wanted to do,” she said.  Her daughter has since recovered, and it seemed a perfect way to give back.

Interestingly, Crawford started her first Crochet Club when she was a librarian at Liberty Middle School in Camas—and she didn’t know how to crochet.  A parent, Laurinda Reddig, was a crochet designer and author of several books.  One of the books was Rowan’s Learn to Crochet Sample Afghan, with patterns for baby blankets and a newborn hat.  Reddig wrote the book in memory of her first daughter, Rowan.  With Reddig’s help, Crawford learned to crochet at the same time as her students.  Now Crawford’s new club will be able to give back with their own crocheting, using the hat pattern from Reddig’s book. 

The Crochet Club will be using yarn donated by Paula Labenske, the grandmother of one of the students in Crochet Club last year, for the hats they are donating.  Much like the stitches that cross and weave together, the Crochet Club is creating a lot of community connections with its giving spirit.

If you would like to help with the Crochet Club project, donations of yarn or hats are welcome and can be dropped off at South Ridge Elementary School, 502 NW 199th Street, Ridgefield, WA.  If you would like to use the same pattern as the Crochet Club, information is available at https://www.recrochetions.com/p/new-book-rowans-learn-to-crochet-sampler.html

Monday, November 4, 2019 – Ridgefield, WA –  As homeless shelters prepare for winter, socks are one of the most requested and least donated items.   An elementary school class in Ridgefield is doing its part to help.  Stephanie Brown’s class is leading a SOCKtober sock drive, and they hope to donate 3,000 pairs of socks to the Ridgefield Family Resource Center and the Council for the Homeless. 

SOCKtober is a national movement that lets kids help the homeless in a tangible way.  Brown’s RISE (Reaching Independence through Structured Education) class is in its second year of leading the sock drive at Union Ridge Elementary School.  Many of Brown’s students are on the autism spectrum or face other challenges, and the students run every element of the program, from delivering classroom donation bags to tracking the number of socks collected. 

On collection days, they partner with fourth grade HiCap (Highly Capable Program) students.  The pairs of students take turns going to the classroom doors to collect socks.  Some students are shy, but they still manage to knock on the door to ask, “Do you have socks?” and say “Thank you!”  The large wagon they use to collect donations fills quickly; they have so many socks they need to go back for another wagon.  After the socks are all collected, they sort and graph the donations. 

Last year the students had a goal of 2,000 pairs of socks.  This year, their goal is even higher:  3,000 pairs.  But they have a little extra help.  Bombas is a sock company that donates one pair of socks for every pair purchased.  Brown applied for a grant last year.  She was excited to learn that one thousand pairs of socks would be donated to the SOCKtober drive through the Bombas grant program.  “I was so excited!” she said.  “They’re such nice socks, and it’s a huge donation.”

Brown is understandably proud of the students in the program.  “We have some of the most impacted students in our district, and here they are doing something fantastic and wonderful.”  She beams as she watches the kids bring armfuls of socks to the wagon, working together to make a difference for others.

If you would like to donate new socks for the SOCKtober sock drive, please deliver them to the main office at Union Ridge Elementary School, 330 North Fifth Avenue in downtown Ridgefield.

“The Turkey Trot has become a holiday tradition for many in the Ridgefield community.  I love that people look forward to it,” said Georgianna Jones, Foundation member and event organizer.  “It’s an opportunity for families and friends to come together, enjoy nature, get a little exercise, and most importantly, give to others.  We are proud to bring this event to Ridgefield each year.”

Wednesday, October 23, 2019 – Ridgefield, Washington – October is National Bullying Prevention Month, a campaign to promote anti-bullying awareness in schools.  Today, students and staff in the Ridgefield School District are showing their support for the cause.

Orange is the color that signifies support for students who have been bullied.  To commemorate National Bullying Prevention Month, Ridgefield students pledged their support by signing special anti-bullying banners in their school.  The orange wristband each student received in return demonstrates their support against student bullying—a symbol of unity they can wear for the entire month.

This month, in classrooms and planned assemblies in the district, students are learning how kindness, acceptance and inclusion help to prevent and put a stop to bullying behavior.

Students and staff in the district wore orange today, Unity Day, Wednesday, October 23--the signature event of National Bullying Prevention Month—to show unity in support of anti-bullying awareness.

Anti-Bullying Message Resonates With Young Ridgefield Student (Photo) - 10/22/19

Tuesday, October 22, 2019 – Ridgefield, WA – October is National Bullying Prevention Month, and Ridgefield schools across the district are holding awareness raising assemblies and events.  But sometimes it’s hard for teachers and administrators to know the real-world impact of these campaigns.  One mother shared a very sweet photo that shows just how well one student got the message. 

Abbey Spading’s daughter, Audrey, was playing with her four-year-old sister.  She overheard Audrey telling her sister about “being an upstander” but didn’t think too much about it.  The next morning, she walked into her daughter’s room and saw the chalkboard.  Audrey had carefully written down the important lessons of the “Be an Upstander” campaign to share with her little sister.

The “Be an Upstander” campaign uses a character named Ned to show students how to go from being a bystander to being an upstander when they see bullying. 

  1. Be a Buddy.  Show friendship to the person being bullied.
  2. Interrupt.  Interrupt the bullying when it starts.
  3. Speak Out.  Say something against the bullying.
  4. Tell Someone.  Tell an adult about it to keep people safe.

Ned’s name serves as a reminder for the things students can do to help: 

Never give up on helping your school to be safe

Encourage others to be upstanders with you

Do your best with all the upstanding ways you can stop bullying at your school

Audrey’s mom was touched when she saw the chalkboard.  “This just blew me away and melted my heart,” she said.  Not only did Audrey learn the message, she shared it with her sister.  And that is exactly how the anti-bullying message spreads:  one student at a time.

Ridgefield schools will celebrate Unity Day on October 23, where students unite for kindness, acceptance, and inclusion.  Please wear orange for Unity Day to join Audrey in standing against bullying.

Ridgefield Student Grace Melbuer Earns State and International Honors at HOSA (Photo) - 10/15/19

Tuesday, October 15, 2019 – Ridgefield, WA – Many children grow up wanting to be doctors or nurses.  Only a few follow that dream into high school and beyond.  Grace Melbuer is not only pursuing her dream of working in healthcare, she is making it easier for other students to pursue theirs. 

When Melbuer was a freshman, she founded the Ridgefield High School chapter of HOSA, a student organization for future health professionals.  Science teacher Shannon Hemrich said, “Our biomedical science program required that we have a leadership group called HOSA.  Grace really got the club off the ground.”  The club started with just seven members.  Now that Melbuer is a senior, the very active HOSA group has 30 members.

HOSA’s primary mission is to help students become future leaders in healthcare.  Under Melbuer’s leadership, students started a job shadowing program with PeaceHealth Southwest Medical Center.  The group also invited healthcare professionals to speak at their meetings so they could learn about different careers in the industry.

As part of its leadership training, HOSA hosts annual competitive events.  At last year’s state competition, Ridgefield’s HOSA team won multiple honors.  Melbuer won first place in the challenging Healthcare Issues exam, which tests competitors on current events in healthcare.

Winning first place at state competition gave Melbuer automatic entrance to the international competition, where she competed against students from all over the U.S., Canada, Mexico, and China.  “I was expecting there to be a good amount of people in my competition,” Melbuer said, “But I’m from Ridgefield, so the biggest testing environment I’ve had is, like, 30 kids.  So walking into a room with 650 kids is kind of weird and overwhelming.  The kid who was sitting right next to me was from China.”  When results were announced, Melbuer was thrilled to find that she placed tenth worldwide. 

Melbuer was also elected regional vice-president, one of six representatives from Washington state.  As a state officer of HOSA, Melbuer traveled to Washington, DC for the Washington Leadership Academy.  There she had the opportunity to meet with Congressional members and staff to advocate for Career and Technical Service Organizations (CTSOs) and to provide a student perspective on the healthcare industry.    

Since this is Melbuer’s senior year, she is excited as she plans for other members to take over leadership of the organization she founded.  “That has been my main goal this year,” she said.  “We wanted to make sure HOSA remains strong.” 

She is also excited to continue HOSA’s tradition of community service.  “Our next blood drive is on my 18th birthday!  I don’t need to sign a permission slip anymore.  I think I’m going to donate on my birthday,” she smiled.  “What a way to celebrate!” 

Ridgefield’s HOSA chapter welcomes members of the healthcare community to speak at their meetings.  For more information, please contact Shannon Hemrich at ich@ridgefieldsd.org">shannon.hemrich@ridgefieldsd.org.
