Here's what's happening @ Saddle Ridge this week:

-Parents- you are welcome to walk your children into the building and to their classroom door if you wish to do so. Your children have done an amazing job learning how to become independent so far this year!! You should be very proud of them. They have their routines down and they have become very responsible for themselves. If you do not wish to walk your child in, that is perfectly fine as well. We know that many of our students have really overcome that fear of walking in by themselves and we don't want to cause any issues but we do want you to know that it is an option if you choose to do so. Thank you for your patience as we have all learned to navigate these uncertain times during covid.

- The Beta Club Canned Food Drive will begin on Monday. We are collecting to food to help SR families during the upcoming holidays. Every little but helps so.... please send in canned food items or other non perishable items. (Rice, Macaroni, etc)

-Athletic Discount Cards are for sale for the next three weeks. The cost of a card is $10.00. Please support our athletic program and get some awesome discounts. You will make your money back in just a few trips to our sponsors. Students that sell 10 get a field trip to the Jump Park in Fort Oglethorpe.
