Principal's Message

Dear Ride Families,

As we move into the new semester, I am reminded that January is always about fresh beginnings and positive change. I love the promise of the New Year and all of the learning and possibilities for growth that exist for children here at Ride. The new year has brought a renewed sense of energy and dedication. The staff and students have come back from their holiday break excited and rejuvenated. We continue to be dedicated to meeting the needs of each and every student. We are really excited for next week as we get to have our first full five day week of 2021.

Finally, on behalf of Ride’s faculty and staff, thank you for your continued support of our students and the work you do for them. It is truly the community, parents, and staff partnering and working together that allows us to maintain the successes we have so long enjoyed here at Ride! As always, if you have questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact a teacher or me directly. We are here to work together to provide the best possible education for your student! We are truly Better Together

Valentine's Day at Ride is Thursday February 11th - Teachers will collect Valentines until Monday February 8th. That way they will be ready to pass out on Thursday. Thank you for your help with this. Any treats need to be individually wrapped.

Enjoy the weekend,

Megan Burnham

#Better Together

Please remember to self check your family before sending them to school each day.

Thank You To Our 1st Grade Parents

Our first grade parents showed amazing support in showering our teachers and staff with all sorts of goodies, (waters, coffee, snacks, etc.). Thank you for all your support and generosity! At Ride, we are truly, Better Together.

School Spirit

On Fridays at Ride, let's show our School Spirit and wear our Ride shirts!.

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.
