Help us raise money for our school
The Safeway Community Giving Card program is an easy way to raise money by selling reloadable Safeway Community Giving cards to our supporters, who then help us earn money every time they reload their card and shop for groceries at Safeway. There are no hidden fees just the initial cost the $5 or $10 gift card. We are going to order a small quantity of these to see how it goes.

What is RtI?
The letters stand for Response to Intervention. However, if you ask your child, they will probably tell you it is one of their favorite things to do at school. Your child has had the chance to work with different staff members at Lydia Rippey - focusing on their specific learning strengths and needs.
RtI is an intervention method we are implementing for the first time this school year. It is a time where students receive instruction based on their personal academic needs. Teachers give all students a pre-test to determine what students already know and what they do not know with a particular skill. Then, the teachers analyze each student’s assessment to see what their learning needs are and group them with other students who have similar needs. Student groups and subject areas change approximately every two or three weeks. RtI is fun, engaging, and most importantly it meets the needs of all learners. Thank you for making sure your child is at school every day for their RtI time.
