Ritter Picture Day is November 3rd!

This year they will only accept orders through their website or by phone. The company will practice social distancing, no-touch photography, and be wearing protective masks. The two photographers will be spaced out in the gym and students will go directly into the gym.


  • Students at school will have their pictures done in the morning.
  • Mrs. Spears has emailed a sign-up genius for all remote students to choose a time for photos. Remote students must enter the Gym using the outside door entrance and exit using the same door.

Thank you to Hedges Used Cars!

Hedges Used Cars donated kickballs and jump ropes to the kindergarten classes and asked that they share them with the other grade levels. This year we asked for donations of playground balls so each classroom could have their own. We thought this would help to ensure the safety of our students. Hedges Used Cars made this possible for us as well as several other families in our school.

Jr. GEMS is back!

GEMS is an acronym that stands for Girls Excelling in Math and Science. Our Ritter girls had their first meeting on Monday and it looks like they had fun learning about careers in math, science, engineering and technology. Mrs. Devoe and the girls will continue to meet once a month for the school year.

4th Grade Book Reports

Our 4th graders did a book report on a book of their choice and then made a pumpkin to look like the main character.

Parent Portal for Powerschool Video

One of our teachers, Mrs. Ramirez made a Powerschool Parent Portal video for our families. We wanted to share it with you in hopes that it might make the procedure easier for you. The link to see the video is Powerschool Parent Portal video
