Principal's Message

Dear Ride Families,


Each day I have the privilege of walking through our classrooms to watch as our teachers and students work together. I watch our teachers implement instruction that engages and excites students. I watch students work hard to learn new content. Each day I see adults helping students grow. This is a very special place and we are all growing each day!! Next week is Spring Break!! Our teachers and Challengers are very deserving of a well-earned break. I hope you can take this time to rest, relax, and enjoy your family and friends. School resumes on Monday, March 21st.


Have a safe and relaxing time this upcoming week and a wonderful SPRING BREAK!


Sincerely,

Megan Burnham

There is no visitor seating available in the cafe. Therefore, you may eat in a couple of different areas; Art room, conference room or outside tables (by gazebo or Trike Track). Certain areas will be designated for specific grades. (see locations below)

We will allowing a limited number of visitors per lunch period. 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.

Attendance Matters - Attendance in school is critical to a child's academic success

Dear Families,


Despite bad weather and illness, Covid and quarantine, our teachers, families and students have persisted to keep learning happening. We appreciate everyone’s hard work and commitment to our school community. Thank you, thank you!

● When school resumes on March 21st, we will be encouraging all students to be present each and every day.

● As long as your child is healthy, please be sure to send your child school and refrain from picking him/her up early. Every day of school is an important opportunity for students to learn as well as connect to peers and their teachers.

● Attendance matters because missing 10% of school days (just two days per month) can drastically impact a child’s education. (For example: Kindergartners and 1st graders who miss 10%+ school days are much less likely to learn to read by the end of 3rd grade.)

● As we enter the final 9 week grading period, we will resume attendance emails and phone calls for students with excessive absences.

Thank you for your continued support!
