Dear Ride Families,
The Bike Rodeo, Book Fair and 4th grade program were all a huge success! We were taking notes and writing ideas down to make it even better next year!
Shout out to Kasey Rogers for creating the Bike Rodeo, Tammy Fishman for organizing and ordering more books everyday for the Book Fair, and Cristen Dimas for an incredible 4th grade musical showcase. Playing musical instruments with this variety and to this extent was new for our Challengers and they rose to the challenge!!
Our incredible PTO is busy preparing for our annual carnival on Friday, April 29th. "Ride Thru The Decades", (RTTD) is a week long celebration with a dress up day for a decade- each day of the week. There is also early purchase opportunities at half price!! Be sure and check it out below.
Don't forget to pre-purchase a picket fence to personalize! It will be installed on one of the chain link fences at the school. See Below
A big part of being a successful school is being properly prepared each year. As we plan for the 2022-2023 school year, please help us to know if your child is returning to Ride next year by completing the Returning Student Survey .
Have a great weekend!
#It's the Little things that make a BIG difference
Congratulations Bike Rodeo Winners!
