Principal Message

Greetings, Ride Families!

This week our teachers met together to discuss vertical alignment and determine a common focus for the grade levels. We decided to focus our attention to writing. We reviewed all of the new objectives for each grade level and examined what 3rd and 4th graders are now expected to do in writing. Every grade level will be supporting the needs and growth of our students to prepare them for the writing expectations in 3rd and 4th grade! We work together to support each other.


Speaking of support, thank you so much for the incredible snacks 4th grade parents have provided for the teachers! They LOVE them!! We LOVE them!! It is truly the little things that make a big difference.


We would also like to invite you to join us at the TEXANS Game on Oct. 2nd. The Texans gave us a section and very discounted tickets for the game!! Please see the QR codes on the flyer below.


Sincerely,

Megan Burnham

Lunch Sign-Up

We are so excited to be able to open our building to lunch visitors. Due to limited seating in the cafeteria, we are offering two options for lunch signups. You will have the opportunity to sign up to eat in the cafeteria with your child or outside in our gazebo/picnic table area. You will not be able to change locations after signup is complete. If you sign up to eat outside and it rains, you will be unable to move into the building due to limited seating. You may sign up for another day/time.


When signing up, please be sure to list your name and the second visitor's name. We need to limit the number of visitors inside and outside the building.

Please see the schedule below for designated grade level lunch visitor’s days. Make sure that you sign up under the correct time slot for your child’s lunchtime. We ask that each student has no more than 2 visitors per student per 3.5-week period. This ensures every parent has an opportunity to sign up. If you have an extenuating circumstance, please call the front office, and we will work with you! Remember to bring a valid id when you visit the building.

Red Wagon Parade

Hello Ride families!!! College Park Homecoming game and dance is fast approaching. To show support for College Park football team there is a yearly parade that takes place and all the feeder schools get involved. It's called the Red Wagon Parade and it's such a fun experience for everyone involved!!! We have not had the parade in 3 years because of COVID so this is a very important year for support and spirit! We love for anyone to join in the parade and wear the ride tie dye if you have one or just a ride shirt. If you have any question feel free to reach out to the Red wagon Committee -Emily Dixon 936-333-0155 or Chatique 832-455-6322
