Happy Friday Rattlers

A big thank you to all of the families that came out last night to support our fabulous PTA. Their first community event of the year was a huge success. Our families rock!


We have a lot of fun activities coming up next week. Our PTA's only major fundraising event of the year, the APEX Fun Run, will kick off on Tuesday with an energetic Pep Rally and daily prizes. Please see the attached Principal's Letter for more information.

Give back to your schools and your community this year with North Texas Giving Day and the Keller ISD Education Foundation. The Keller ISD Education Foundation supports every school in the district through classroom teaching grants, our scholarship program and district wide academic programs. Last year three Ridgeview teachers received grants from the KISD Education Foundation bringing reading, art, and music to our school!

100% of your donation will go directly to improving your community and will be multiplied on North Texas Giving Day.

The Annual Apex Fun Run Event: September 20th to September 30th, 2016!

Thank you for your support of Ridgeview Elementary and the investments you make in your children’s lives. We are so excited to reintroduce you to this year’s only major fundraiser, the Apex Fun Run!

We had an amazing Apex Fun Run last year! The first 10% was allocated to the teachers to spend in their classrooms. Then, we were able to pay for Water Bottle Refill Stations, Theater Curtains, & Campus Technology. This year we plan to use profits for Technology for Classrooms & Playground Upgrades!
