Welcome Back Students and Parents
I would like to quickly introduce myself in case we haven’t met yet. My name is Clyde Moore and I come to Sand Ridge after spending the last three years as an assistant principal at Roy High. I’m excited to be here. I am so impressed with the caliber of our staff and especially, our students. I believe my experience at the high school level has given me a unique perspective and understanding of what our students need to be prepared for high school.
We are excited to get the 2017 school started and feel we are moving in the right direction. We got off to a great start, and the students have settled in nicely. I only wish the weather would cooperate and cool down a little bit. Some of the rooms are a little warmer than we would like.
There have been some good things happening at Sand Ridge. My goal is to not only continue that, but also make Sand Ridge one of the best schools in the area. Our goal is to provide your student with the best education and extra-curricular experience possible.
Parents I ask that you support your student and their teachers by being involved in their educational experience. One way to do this is by regularly checking you student’s portal. You can see your student’s academic progress, as well as their attendance. There will be many opportunities for your student to be successful. We are dedicated to providing academic support during the school day, and after school. We offer interventions such as Advisory, STING Time and Study Table during the school day and Core Subject labs after school. If you have any questions concerning these interventions, please contact your student’s teacher, counselor, or the main office.
Some important dates that are coming soon are:
- September 5th – 8th Clothing Drive. We are competing with Roy Junior and Roy High Schools to see which school can collect the most (lbs.) of clothing for the victims of Hurricane Harvey! Clothing donations can be dropped off at Sand Ridge during school hours.
- September 7th Softball opener at Wahlquist.
- September 8th Football opener hosting Wahlquist.
- September 20th Mid-term reports posted
- September 27th Parent Teacher Conference (1:00 – 3:30 and 4:00 – 6:30).
Thank you for all you do to support Sand Ridge and especially your students. I look forward to getting to know you and your students. I am here to serve the students, you, and the community, so please let me know if you have any questions or concerns. Welcome to 2017-2018 school year! Let’s have a safe and productive year.
