Principal's Message

Dear Ride Families,

I would just like to say that we have the most incredible, thoughtful, kind and considerate PTO Board and members. I feel like their passion and drive is purely for the kids! They have truly gone the extra mile on everything Ride Reading Adventure this year. Every aspect of the planning from the activities to the prizes were made better and more fun than ever before!!!

No wonder we smashed the previous fundraising record! I am so proud of this community for showing up to cheer on the parades, eat lunch with your kids, and helping out in the classrooms.

College Park High School Principal Dr. Mark Murrell even sent over the CP Drum- Line to lead the parade. Many of the drummers were former Ride kids!! It was so great to see them!

We are so appreciative and grateful for this wonderful day.

#Best day ever ! !

Ride Clean Up Day Saturday

Please click on the link below to volunteer this Saturday to help clean up the outdoor area of Ride Elementary. Our PTO will be clearing out the west side to make room for outdoor classrooms and picnic areas.

Signup Genius for Volunteer

Reservation for Lunch at Sally K. Ride

We have a Sign-Up Genius to reserve a spot to have lunch with your child. In order to give all parents an opportunity to sign up, each adult may only sign up once every three weeks.

There is no visitor seating available in the cafe. Therefore, you may eat in a couple of different areas; Art room, library or outside tables (by gazebo or Trike Track). Certain areas will be designated for specific grades. Please see the outdoor seating map and the Sing Up Genius for more details.

Next week, Oct 12-15th, we will allow 10 parents per lunch period to eat lunch with their child. Please make every effort to eat outside at picnic tables (weather permitting), otherwise you will see your location to eat in the Sign-Up Genius.

Spring Creek has added an additional BBQ Sauce Fundraiser to our Ride Night. From now until October 18th, all the profit will go directly to Ride!!! Please see flyer for details.

It may be a nice gift set for the holidays.

GT Program

Referral requests are now open for Conroe Independent School District Gifted and Talented program. Referral requests can be made by the parents and/or campus staff. It is recommended that parents of 2nd grade students wait until CogAT scores have arrived before nominating their child because CogAT scores are part of the GT assessment. If you are interested in referring your child, you may want to discuss this with your child’s teacher at conferences. Referrals will be accepted through December 17, 2021. Referral form can be accessed through the link below.
