Introducing Dr. Kelly Manning/ New Assistant Principal at Peine Ridge

Hello! My name is Kelly Manning and I’m thrilled to be the new Assistant Principal of Peine Ridge Elementary School. I taught fifth grade at Peine Ridge years ago and returning to this amazing community is a dream come true for me! My husband, Sean, is also an educator in Wentzville. He teaches Art at Wentzville South Middle School. We have five children and our youngest will be in 2nd Grade at Peine Ridge. I am excited to learn and grow with all of you this year! It’s going to be the best year yet!

New Proof of Residency Requirements for all Families

Starting with the 2021-2022 school year, our buildings will ask every current family to provide updated proof of residency to the school that serves the oldest child in the family. The documents will be collected from August 1 through October 31. A list of the approved documents is provided below. Please contact your school's secretary or registrar for further information. New enrollments will be required to provide full proof of residency documentation.

Provide current utility bills (water, sewer, electric, gas) within the last 30 days with matching mailing address and service address.

Provide current lease with all occupant names and utility bills (water, sewer, electric, gas) within the last 30 days. The utility bill mailing address and service address must match. If lease transitions to month-to-month then provide the updated addendum. If it is a mobile home trailer and pad, then the lease for both should match. Leases should include all pages of the lease.

Residing with Someone Else:
Owner/Lessee should provide a lease, ALTA Settlement Statement, or Real Estate Tax Statement. Owner/Lessee should also provide a utility bill, valid photo ID, and notarized letter.
Parent/Guardian residing with someone else should provide a photo ID and Affidavit of Residency Form. Parent/Guardian residing with someone else should also provide official mail from a federal/state agency, current bank statement/loan statement, or utility bill.

All guardianship situations and documentation will need to be updated this year and annually.

Please contact your school's secretary or registrar for further information.

Adding to our STORY

Over the summer, we have plans to add to our collage of framed photographs in our hallway and we would love to display our Peine Families. Each family may provide one family photo for the collage. We need your help with this and ask that you bring your framed picture to the school, please do so by August 12, 2022. You may turn these into the Kelli in the main office.


5X7 Framed Family Photo-The photos can be candid, silly, or formal. Make it one your Panthers will love to look at when passing in the hallway. Clothing must be school-appropriate.

If you can please Donate an extra 5x7 frame for those who can’t afford to purchase a frame.
