Principal's Message

Dear Ride Families,

Dear Families,

Next week is a very exciting week for us as we begin our first school fundraiser in over a year. We call it Ride Through the Decades (RTTD). Starting Monday, each day is dedicated to a decade where we all dress up and explore different activities, games, toys, etc.. … from that decade. The teachers do a great job tying it into their everyday instruction. The week typically ends with an incredible carnival type fun evening for the kids!! Sadly, this year we will not be able to do the carnival. However, we will be able to dress up, have the raffle, and Silent Auction. Please take a few moments to support he PTO and school in any way you can. Every little bit helps!

Monday, April 12th – Dress up in 50’s

Tuesday, April 13th – Dress up in 60’s

Wednesday, April 14th – Dress up in 70’s

Thursday, April 15th – Dress up in 80’s

Friday, April 16th – Dress up in 90’s

Kids Raffle: The kids raffle will be open every day next week:

COVID Tracing

There are likely many opportunities for students to gather outside of school with friends and loved ones. During this time, please express to your child the importance of taking precautions to slow the spread of COVID-19 by wearing masks, frequently washing hands, and social distancing. We all must work together as partners to balance the need for social interaction and celebration with keeping our schools open to in-person learning. Our partnership is critical in order to keep students and staff safe and in school throughout the holiday season. Should your child test positive for COVID-19, we ask that you email your child’s campus at contactride@conroeisd.net so we can provide the appropriate support and make the required notifications. Thank you.
