OCTOBER 14, 2016


Last Friday students participated in the Bike Rodeo. We had a great turnout of student participants, parent volunteers and the mosquito brigade. PTA presented trophies to the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place boy and girl winner for each grade level. Each student that participated also received a participation award. Thank you parents for supporting your children in this annual event and to all the parent volunteers that helped make the event run so successful. The mosquito problem has been better this week due to the NEISD pest control treating the outside grounds last weekend.

We hope all of our students enjoyed the 3 day weekend and Columbus Day Holiday. Teachers were learning about technology, digital citizenship, student interventions and were able to work as grade level teams.

This week 12 of our 5th grade students were trained as Peer Mediators. These students will utilize their leadership and conflict resolution skills while working with their peers and school counselors. Please contact Mrs. Bacon and Mrs. Grams if you want to learn more about this program.

Today ended the 1st nine weeks and report cards will go home next Friday. We appreciate the ongoing support from our dads who volunteer to be Watch Dogs!

Each year we conduct a school fundraiser to provide funds for staff development and school wide projects. In the past we have funded the Lightspeed sound systems for all classrooms, the gym rock climbing wall, LiM activities for students and staff and special programs and new recess equipment.

To encourage participation in the fundraiser again this year, the class with the highest sales will take a field trip to downtown San Antonio to ride the River Barge and eat a picnic lunch in the Yanaguana Garden Hemisfair Park. Please contact the Canyon Ridge front office at 407-1600 for any questions. We thank you in advance for your continued support of Canyon Ridge!
