Thank You 1st Grade

Yesterday, the 1st Grade Parents provided the staff with a wonderful luncheon! We feel so fortunate to have such amazing parents at Sally K. Ride.

Principal's Message

February is a good time to check progress and promote success. We also like to reset our positive mindset and prepare to work hard. Some ways to help out are: Talk with the teacher to review how your child is doing. Be creative while reading and do activities that relate to things your child is studying. Help your child set reasonable goals, then applaud their efforts!

The second semester is academically rigorous. There are usually two benchmark tests in core subjects as well as the STAAR Test for 3rd & 4th graders. We will be working hard with students to have them academically grow and progress during this time. As always, we are so grateful for your continued efforts to help build good work habits and responsibility with your child. The Spring semester tends to come and go quickly.

Math/Science Night, Thursday, February 20th is one of our favorite events of the season.

Please see the flyer below for some of the special activities available for everyone!

We hope to see you there!!
