Principal's Message

Dear Ride Families,


The Ride Through the Decades this year was amazing!! The carnival was out of this world fun!! Our incredible PTO did an amazing job organizing the carnival and the auction. We appreciate you so much!! Then the next day, they are up here decorating for Teacher Appreciation Week. The teacher appreciation theme is Super Heroes. They had the windows at the front of the school painted, the hallways are decorated. Students wrote notes of appreciation to their teachers and those are posted; and a special treat each day of the week. Such an amazing and dedicated group of parents who support Sally K. Ride.

Thank you for all you do for Sally K. Ride. We feel so supported.

Ride Through the Decade (RTTD) Teacher Activities or grade level parties are happening now. The PTO will allow anyone to attend who wants to. All you need to do is let your teacher know and write a check (Ride PTO) or cash in the amount of $20.00.


STAAR WEEK is next week. As a reminder; we do our best efforts to make the school environment conducive to testing and give the kids the best opportunity to focus on their questions. Therefore, the building will be closed to all visitors and no items may be dropped off during the school day. Thank you so much for your support.


Rainbow Week starts on Friday, May 13th by wearing RED. It has been a long-standing tradition at Sally K. Ride, hosted by 4th grade to celebrate the end of our elementary days. We invite the entire school to join in the fun by wearing colors for each day of the week listed below.


Have a great weekend!


Sincerely,

Megan Burnham

#It's the Little things that make a BIG difference

Don't forget to pack a lunch each day!

Due to the exorbitant high number of lunches being dropped off at Ride during the school day, we will no longer be able to accept lunch drop off. We are having an over abundance of lunches dropped off at the front office during the school day. The number of lunches dropped off seems to be increasing each day. The number of calls to the classroom, students getting up and leaving class and the interruptions to instruction has become a challenge for teachers to teach. Therefore, as of Monday, May 4th, we are not accepting lunches dropped off at the front office. Please be sure to send a lunch in your child's back pack or he/she may eat a hot or cold lunch choice in the cafeteria. Thank you for your understanding. Our main goal at Sally K. Ride is to focus on instruction and teaching during the school day.
