Greetings, Ride Families!
Highlighted House members for Inclusion. At the conclusion of each month (and the character trait for that month), each classroom votes on a student who best portrayed and represented the character trait for that month. January Character Trait was Inclusion.
February Character Trait is Integrity. Integrity in elementary school is introduced as having the strength to do what’s is right, make good choices, being kind, and helpful. We discuss this every morning on the announcements and give examples, and the teachers review it in their morning meetings as well.
The next two weeks are short weeks with only 4 days in each week. These are the weeks that we tell the kids that we have to focus extra hard since we only get to come to school 4 days this week. We will have a simple Valentine’s exchange for the classes on Tuesday, February 14th. We hope you have a wonderful time celebrating Valentine's Day with your loved ones.
Have a great weekend,
# We Include others, We SHOW Kindness, We SHOW Citizenship, We ARE Responsible, #We ARE Respectful, #We ARE Challengers!
Challengers celebrated Mrs. Johnson for Counselor's Week!
Lost and Found Items
As we have cool mornings and warmer afternoons, we have noticed an increase in jackets and coats in the lost and found. Please remember to write your child’s name in their outerwear items and have them check the lost and found, located at the end of each grade level hallway. We tend to get many items left over, and I know these items easily get lost during transition or recess times. Please feel free to stop in after school if you would like to look for some lost items!
Ride Through The Decades
The 2023 Ride through the Decades Spring Carnival planning committee is looking for silent auction items. If you own a business and would like to donate we would love to help promote your business. 100% of the funds raised through the silent auction go directly to the PTO, which then go directly into the school.
PTO funds various school functions including field trips, math and reading tutoring, teacher support, professional development, substitute pay, computer programs/licenses, technology, reading incentive programs, playground equipment and repairs, copy paper, school beautification and so much more. All funds the PTO raises goes towards enhancing each child's education at Sally K. Ride.

Due to limited seating in the cafeteria, we are offering two options for lunch signups. You will have the opportunity to sign up to eat in the cafeteria with your child or outside in our gazebo/picnic table area. You will not be able to change locations after signup is complete. If you sign up to eat outside and it rains, you will be unable to move into the building due to limited seating. You may sign up for another day/time.
Each slot is available for two adults and the child you are eating lunch with..
Please see the schedule below for designated grade level lunch visitor’s days. Make sure that you sign up under the correct time slot for your child’s lunchtime. Each student may have a lunch visitor once every 3.5-week period. This ensures every parent has an opportunity to sign up. Remember to bring a valid id when you visit the building.
Due to limited seating in the cafeteria, we are asking all parents with small children to eat outside in the gazebo area.
