Principal Message

Greetings, Ride Families!

Wow!! just Wow!! We just had one of the most incredible Ride's Reading Adventure Fundraisers ever!! You are all so wonderful and supportive of your kids, the teachers and this community!

We are grateful to work in a positive school community like this. I have teachers tell me all the time, that they love coming to school, they don’t ever want to miss a day, and that this is the best school they have ever worked in. This kind of attitude is a result of a strong community culture. So, we just wanted to take this opportunity to Thank you for all you do!!

I am very proud and grateful to be part of this incredible school.

The Storybook parade was amazing! The kids were dressed in all their favorite book characters and many learned the famous “parade wave”!! To top it off, -- The College Park High School Percussion band surprised us with a drumline escort. It was the best!!

Thank you for supporting the 2022 Ride Reading Adventure. We have raised over $72,000.00 for Sally K. Ride Elementary and the PTO.

Today, was jam packed and full of activities and adventures. I know many kids (and teachers) will sleep good tonight. I know I will.

I hope you have a wonderful weekend,


Megan Burnham

Lunch Sign-Up

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.
