State testing begins on Monday, Oct. 4. All freshmen, juniors and seniors will be taking a state test in October, and sophomores will be testing later this year. Students MUST have a school-issued Chromebook (not one from surplus) as testing can only take place using a secure browser, and those browsers can only be uploaded on school owned devices. If you need to check out a Chromebook, contact our tech department at email@example.com Here is the link to the parental authorization for Chromebook check out. It is best to open this form on a computer rather than a phone. https://webforms.ridgefieldsd.org/forms/mdca
Congratulations to Spudders Head Football Coach Scott Rice on being recognized as a Seattle Seahawks Coach of the Week! Now in his third season at the helm, Rice has been steadily building the program into a consistent winner and a state-caliber program. After beating 7-time defending league champs Hockinson 35-0 last Friday, the team is off to a 3-0 start and building momentum. Each week during the high school football season, the Seahawks and the Washington State Football Coaches Association select two high school football coaches as the Coach of the Week winners. Each recipient receives a $500 donation to the school's football program plus a framed certificate signed by Seahawks Head Coach Pete Carroll. Rice will also receive two tickets to a home Seahawks game later this season and be recognized on the field with the other Seattle Seahawks Coaches of the Week recipients. #GoSpuds!
