First Day Festivities Help Kick off 2016-17 School Year!
On August 31st, Pacific Ridge students and faculty gathered to celebrate the beginning of the new school year.
Seventh-grade students were the last to be seated, allowing them to enter the Athletic Center to roaring applause from their new community. After welcoming remarks from Dr. Ogle and All-School President Amanda Mickelson, Grade-level Deans, Division Heads, and new faculty/staff introduced themselves. From there, it was all fun and games as volunteers from each grade faced off in a number of silly competitions for the ultimate prize: a jeans day! In keeping with Pacific Ridge tradition, a strike of the gong signaled the official start of a new academic year, and students headed, anxiously and eagerly, to their first classes.
