Principal's Message

Dear Ride Families,

As we conclude 2019, and break for the winter holiday, I want to take a moment to express my heartfelt gratitude to all who help make Sally K. Ride an amazing place to be. We are a community with many gifts and talents, which we share daily with one another and most important, our students. Our collective efforts to raise the whole child are filled with passion, commitment and a willingness to make decisions that will have a positive and lasting influence in the future for all.

Parents, you are such a critical part of all we hope to accomplish on behalf of our Ride Challengers. Thank you for entrusting us with your most precious gift.

In the spirit of this holiday season, I want to extend my thanks to all of you for everything that you do for our school. As we enjoy the upcoming holidays, it is my wish that each of you receive the blessings and good tidings that make these days truly special.

It is also during this time that I am reminded of my own good fortune to serve as the proud principal of Sally k. Ride Elementary.

To the parents and friends of the Sally K. Ride community, please have a safe and joyous holiday season.

We will see you back at school on January 8, 2020.
