Tiffany Ridge Health & Safety Guidelines

See the information at this link for our procedures to keep our students safe at school!

Important Art Information from Mrs. De La Piedra, Art Teacher

  • I am excited to be using the online portfolio app—Artsonia--again this year! All student artwork from last year is still visible and available to order products from. As new artwork is added to your students portfolio, you will receive an e-mail alerting you when there is new art to view.
  • I will not be using Art to Remember this year, but you can order many of the same products from Artsonia at any time. Our school receives a portion of the profit from the products you purchase!
  • Feel free to e-mail me with any questions you have about using Artsonia.
  • See below for the new QR and access code for Artsonia this year!

Birthday Treats

Due to our safety guidelines, we will not be able to have food or other items brought into the school building for birthdays or other celebrations. If you are still interested in birthday treats for your students, our Food Service has options available for purchase. Click HERE for ordering information.

FREE Lunch Information

Meals are free for all children, ages 18 and under, through the end of the 2021-2022 school year. Children can receive up to one breakfast and one lunch each day.

Students who bring a lunch from home, but would like to purchase a drink (milk or juice) are required to pay for the "a la carte" items. Those are NOT part of the free lunch program.

Join PTA! Help our Timberwolves Reach for the Stars!

Our goal is for ALL parents and staff to join our PTA to support the many activities at Tiffany Ridge! Joining PTA does not commit you to help with anything specifically, but it helps give back to the school in many ways. The money goes towards funding a birthday book for every student, the Reflections Program, classroom grants, and much more! You can sign up by filling out this form and sending payment to school (cash or check made out to “Tiffany Ridge PTA”) with your child OR you can join online by going to https://tiffany-ridge-elementary-pta.square.site/ or this QR Code.

PTA Committee Sign-Up!

We need YOU! We are planning to return to a normal year for 2021-2022! Please consider getting involved in our school by volunteering for one of the committees below. You will not be "alone" or "in charge", as each committee will have several participants to work together to help with the event or activity. Research tells us that when parents are involved in their children's schools, then the children are more engaged and successful in school!
