New Format for Coyote News

Thursday, Jan. 28th, 12am

20522 Stone Oak Parkway

San Antonio, TX

Hello Parents,

I will be linking this new format in the Parentlink system to bring you the Coyote News each week. Please send me your feedback as I hope you will find this easier to read than prior news I have sent in the past. I will continue to use the Parentlink system to send you quick messages and the link to the weekly newsletter.

This Week on the Ridge

This week 3rd, 4th & 5th grade students and teachers have worked really hard during their benchmark assessments. Benchmark assessments help our teachers and students know where they are in the learning and teaching of the grade level TEKS (Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills). Teachers find this information helpful when they are making instructional decisions for their students. Our students did very well on their Fall Benchmarks and I am confident will do equally as well during this time.


Author, Jason Chin, visited our Library on Thursday and shared his books, illustrations and writing process. All students had an opportunity to see his presentation. See Mrs. Howk's link for more details and pictures.

Welcome Mrs. Glennie Lecocke!

Mrs. Lecocke joined us on January 14, 2016. She is a former North East principal and retired from Coker Elementary School. She will be subing until the new assistant principal is approved and named by the NEISD School Board sometime in February. She has been a great addition to our team and already has so many parent and staff connections from her prior school experiences.

Parents, you are invited to have some Leadership Fun next Tuesday, Feb. 2 at 6:00 p.m. in the Cafeteria.

February 12, 2016 EARLY RELEASE DAY

Traditionally Canyon Ridge has held its 2nd party on Valentine's Day. There will not be a party due to Early Release. Students will be allowed to bring a Valentine Box and Valentines for their classmates but will open their Valentines at home. Please look for more information from your child's classroom teacher.


Our 2nd party day will be held on April 21, 2016 during Fiesta Week. Teachers and Room Parents will send more information home as that date gets closer.
