Principal's Message

Dear Ride Families,

4th grade students went on their traditional Huntsville State Park field trip Thursday. It was the first time 4th grade was able to go on a field trip since 2019. Many of our 4th graders have not attended a field trip since 1st grade. So, we were so happy they were able to go before leaving elementary school.

The annual Field Day was in full swing today! Thank you to everyone who volunteered! We couldn't do it with out you! There were over 150 volunteers who came out and gave their time to make this a memorable event. We are already planning improvements for next year. It will go down as one of our Best Days Ever!!


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. The auction items go live tonight at 5:00pm. Have fun with it, while you support your school.

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 samples 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!


Sincerely,

Megan Burnham
