Last year, Grand Ridge was able to fully clean up and build new gardening beds for our students to use in Gardening Club. Gardening Club is a very popular lunchtime club where students can work in the garden to plant, pull weeds, tend to flowers and vegetables.
That was last spring, and now, the garden is full! All the hard work has paid off and we now can reap the harvest! These photos were taken in mid-September of the harvest, after a full summer of growth. Grand Ridge was able to donate the first harvest to the Issaquah Food Bank! A wonderful way to kick off the year!

Meet Principal Jill Ravenscraft!
Hi, Grizzly families! The best parts about being a principal are that I get to be with kids all day long, I have the honor of watching dedicated staff members support our students in the most devoted and creative ways, and I get to see our collective future unfold right before my very eyes. What’s not to love? A few fun facts about me: I really enjoy the children’s books “Maniac Magee” (I cannot get through it without crying) and “There’s a Monster at the End of This Book” (Sesame Street, from when my son was little). When I’m listening to music, I’ll pick anything that I can dance and clean to (NO Techno, however). My bucket list includes visiting all of the U.S. National Parks and staying in an apartment with a view of Central Park in New York City from Thanksgiving to New Year’s Day. I’m left-handed, and if I go back two generations on both sides of my family, only my paternal grandfather and one cousin were also left-handed.
Multi-Tiered Systems of Support
MTSS is shaping the student experience at our school and throughout our district. Multi-Tiered Systems of Support, or MTSS, is a nationally recognized, evidence-based framework guiding our approach to academics, social emotional learning, behavior and attendance.
Kindergarteners Return to Campus
Grand Ridge was excited to welcome kindergarteners back to our campus in the fall of 2021. Due to overcrowding our school has just had first through fifth graders for the past couple of years.
