  62. 62. What could we do better?  More discipline (x2)  A home & school that contacts & involves parents to make them feel welcome  More physical activities  Better & more communication (x2)  Online grades  Bring back hot lunch (x3)  More sports & extracurricular activities
  63. 63. If you could change one thing now, what would it be?  Better discipline  Better decisions  Live up to our potential as a school of excellence
  64. 64. Anonymous comments:  Ridgetop needs more extra-curricular activities for the kids-not just pathfinders. A van or small bus is also needed for field trips etc so parents are not always having to drive. There is no hot lunch this year, which hasn't been explained or a solution found. The entire school property needs to be fenced for security. School bathrooms need attention. The very young kids need their own bathroom in their classroom. Male students have complained about no partitions between the urinals and having to share the bathroom will the very young children. The faculty is always very friendly and helpful.
  65. 65. Conclusions—what we do well:  Openness of communication  Respectful, receptive and responsive staff  Staff accessibility  Safe environment  Making parents feel welcomed and respected  Kids enjoy coming to school!  Great family atmosphere
  66. 66. Conclusions—what we can improve:  More opportunities to get parents involved  Improved perception of discipline fairness & effectiveness  Improved perception of school excellence & regard in community  Meeting needs of all our students  Increased discipline  More & better communication  Bring back hot lunch
