Welcome to the 2019-20 school year! We are very excited for the August 14th start date of school and the exciting changes that come along with it. One way to stay connected with all the offerings and activities of Crest Ridge is to download our app so you can see the current “Live Feed” posts and view our updated calendar. We know you will also benefit by reaching out to all of our staff members personally as we start the new school year at back to school events and other activities throughout the year. We enjoy interacting with all students, parents and patrons every chance we get.

The mission of the Johnson County R-VII School District is to cultivate school, family, and community relationships which promote accountability, respect, and integrity and foster the development of career and college-ready individuals. Starting in 2019, Crest Ridge is heavily investing in the amount time and the quality of professional development we offer our teachers and other staff members to fulfill our mission.

We can’t thank the patrons of the district enough for the passage of the April 2018 bond issue that has allowed us to make so many needed improvements to the campus. Construction is nearing an end and we are very proud of the improvements to Crest Ridge. We can’t wait to share the newly air conditioned gymnasiums at the secondary school and the beautiful resurfaced driveways and parking lots. Our Crest Ridge Board of Education made sure to address every item that was campaigned on before the bond passed and made very wise use of the dollars in the process.

I look forward to seeing everyone throughout the school year. Go Cougars!
