TOP SOCIAL MEDIA POSTS

These District 202 social media posts got the most attention and feedback this week:
facebook Several Ridge Elementary School staff members visited new Ridge students in several nearby neighborhoods.

School staff started their "Raptor Attacks" in the fall of 2012.

Staff visits the homes of incoming kindergarten students, third grade honors students and any student who did not get a visit the previous year.

Third grade honors teacher Elyse Yates, social worker Amanda Lulek, kindergarten teacher Tina Swanson, teaching assistant Amy Rauen and her 6-year-old daughter Brooklyn greeted students and gave out some Ridge swag.

Different staff members will visit more homes Thursday and Friday.
