The North Ridge Show Choir is an auditioned group of fourth and fifth graders. Mrs. Ferri rehearses with this group for an hour after school every Monday. There is no fee to be part of this group. The North Ridge Chorus auditioned for a panel of judges in hopes of being selected to perform in Pieces of Gold on March 5th, 2022. Pieces of Gold is a performance of the top performing Arts Groups in Wake County Schools held at the Duke Progress Energy Center. The NRE Chorus and 24 other groups from Wake County High Schools, Middle Schools and Elementary schools were selected to perform in the 2022 Pieces of Gold. The North Ridge Chorus will perform 42nd Street as our part of the program. Tickets for this performance will go on sale in January through TicketMaster. Proceeds from this performance go to grants for classrooms throughout Wake County.
Safety Patrols assist the school's staff in morning arrival and afternoon dismissal of students. The goal of Safety Patrol is to allow its members to explore and develop important leadership skills such as responsibility, dependability, and cooperation. As a member of the Safety Patrol, you are expected to consistently follow the rules.
The Safety Patrol is made up of current 5th graders. Students apply to become a safety patrol during the summer before their fifth grade year. Students complete an application process that includes both parent and teacher recommendations. Please contact Ms. Jakara Heyward (email@example.com) for more information.
