Fern Ridge Middle School has been lucky to have Mrs. McBride as a Physical Education Teacher for over 10 years. She is always willing to lend a helping hand and serves on the Fern Ridge Middle School Leadership Team as well as the Fern Ridge Middle School Climate Committee.
Mrs. McBride exemplifies the active lifestyle that she loves to teach to her students; she is an avid bicyclist and often rides 25 to 50 miles each day on the roads around Fern Ridge. She also goes on hikes and enjoys being outside in nature which includes camping trips with her husband, son and two dogs, Ziggy and Jax.
Her son, Keegan, who is also a student at FRMS, wanted everyone to know that his mom is a great gardener and is currently growing strawberries and raspberries. He also let us know how much his mom loves chocolate but not necessarily raspberry ice cream or any combination of raspberry and chocolate. Thanks for the tip Keegan!
Fern Ridge School District is fortunate to have such a great addition to our staff. Congratulations Mrs. McBride!

Congratulations to Rebecca Hauge, our October Employee of the Month!
Mrs. Hauge is a Special Education teacher at Veneta Elementary School and has worked for our district for over 2 years.
One of the favorite parts of her job is teaching students new strategies that they can use to solve math problems. She also enjoys working with other teachers and specialists within the district to support student learning in the classroom.
On a daily basis, Mrs. Hauge teaches phonics, reading strategies, writing skills, social skills, mathematical thinking skills, number sense and math computation in the Veneta Elementary resource room. She also supports students’ needs so they can be successful in their classrooms on a daily basis.
She enjoys spending time with her family and friends, hiking and camping in the woods but one of her new favorite places to be is the beach. She has traveled extensively, visiting 11 countries and counting. She also enjoys yoga, painting and dance.
We want to thank Mrs. Hauge for the support she gives to all of her students at Veneta Elementary!

On behalf of the School Board members and the entire staff of the Fern Ridge School District, I would like to thank Mr. David Bolton for his years of service as a School Board Member (Position 3.) He has given countless hours advocating for staff, students and the community of Fern Ridge and it has been much appreciated.
David was elected as a school board member in 2013 and was the current vice-chair for the 2017-2018 school year. David’s busy work schedule, as well as other personal and family obligations has resulted in him deciding to try to get some “balance” in his life so he has elected to resign effective September 18, 2017. We wish he, his wife Denise and their sons Aidan and Jacob the best. We thank David and his entire family for their service these past 4+ years.
Mr. Bolton has a long history in education and will continue to serve with the Technology department of the Bethel School District. We wish him the very best success in future endeavors.
More information regarding the open position #3 will be posted soon.
Thank you very much to the EHS Booster Club and all of their volunteers for their work in hosting the golf tournament fundraiser yesterday at Diamond Woods Golf Course. The ladies that run booster club (they do allow men to join by the way–hint hint…) put in a ton of work to put this event on, and they did a fantastic job. Thank you for all your hard work. In addition, thank you to all those that registered to golf, and all of the businesses that donated. It is much appreciated and goes to a great cause. Go Falcons!
