Principal's Message

Dear Ride Families,

Thank you so much for the incredible support you showed during our Ride Through the Decades fundraiser. The kids had a wonderful time watching the power point of the raffle items. We were even able to announce the raffle winners on the Ride TV before school was dismissed. They were so excited to come to the library and pick up the prize!

You still have time to bid on your favorite items. Remember, your support goes directly to Ride PTO to help support your school. The bidding closes at 7:15pm tonight.


If you win a silent auction item you may pick it up tomorrow, Friday, April 17th at Ride from 10:00 - 12:00pm or 3:00 - 5:00pm.

Please see below for some of our End of the Year Activities.

We appreciate your support,

Have a great weekend!!

COVID Tracing

There are likely many opportunities for students to gather outside of school with friends and loved ones. During this time, please express to your child the importance of taking precautions to slow the spread of COVID-19 by wearing masks, frequently washing hands, and social distancing. We all must work together as partners to balance the need for social interaction and celebration with keeping our schools open to in-person learning. Our partnership is critical in order to keep students and staff safe and in school throughout the holiday season. Should your child test positive for COVID-19, we ask that you email your child’s campus at contactride@conroeisd.net so we can provide the appropriate support and make the required notifications. Thank you.
