Principal Message

Greetings, Ride Families!

The fourth grade musical showcase was amazing last night. Our challenger are learning beyond the basic fourth grade musical requirements by learning multiple instruments and creating their own music scores. I thought the songs the kids presented were songs/music that they learned from Mrs. Dimas. But after learning that each class actually created their own music, I was even more impressed. Thank you for supporting Sally K. Ride and the fine arts department. Research shows they have a huge impact on student achievement and success.

We are also excited that the 3rd and 4th graders will be able to show what they have learned this year and the previous years through the STAAR test. The kids have been working hard all year and are ready!! This weekend is a great time to get plenty of rest and practice some positive affirmations with your kids. "You are ready, Your can do this", etc...

This is the time of year we start planning for next year. It is very important for us if you could please complete the Returning Student Form. Your information helps us determine if we will need additional teachers. If we do need additional teachers, we would like to do it sooner than later so will will be prepared for a great start to the new school year.

Online Registration for the 2023-24 school years is open for all grade levels.

Have a great weekend,


Megan Burnham

Lunch Sign-Up

Due to limited seating in the cafeteria, we are offering two options for lunch signups. You will have the opportunity to sign up to eat in the cafeteria with your child or outside in our gazebo/picnic table area. You will not be able to change locations after signup is complete. If you sign up to eat outside and it rains, you will be unable to move into the building due to limited seating. You may sign up for another day/time.

Each slot is available for two adults and the child you are eating lunch with..

Please see the schedule below for designated grade level lunch visitor’s days. Make sure that you sign up under the correct time slot for your child’s lunchtime. Each student may have a lunch visitor once every 3.5-week period. This ensures every parent has an opportunity to sign up. Remember to bring a valid id when you visit the building.

Due to limited seating in the cafeteria, we are asking all parents with small children to eat outside in the gazebo area.
