A Note From Ms. Buckley

Dear Parents/Guardians,

Welcome back to Ridglea Hills Elementary School!  We are looking forward to another great year.  I hope that you had a wonderful, relaxing summer with your children.  I anticipate this year being Ridglea Hills best academic year yet.  While our mission here at Ridglea Hills is is to provide rigorous instruction in a nurturing environment in which all students are actively engaged to become problem-solvers, well-rounded citizens, and life-long learners we also strive to make school a nurturing and fun place to look forward to coming to everyday.

This year’s PTA theme is “Team Ridglea Hills” and I cannot think of a better summation of the school, parents, and community working together in harmony to achieve high academic success for all our students.  To kick off the school year I would like to personally invite you to “Meet the Teacher” on Thursday August 23rd from 6:00-7:30.

We will begin the evening in the auditorium at 6:00 with a short presentation about Title I.  Before we dismiss to the classrooms we will introduce our new staff members, including our new assistant principal, Carlos Meekins.  In order to allow our families with children in multiple grades to attend the grade level presentation we have designed a staggered schedule. 

5th grade will meet in the cafeteria at 6:30 and then again at 7:00

4th grade will meet in the library at 6:30 and then again at 7:00

3rd, 2nd, 1st, and Kindergarten will meet in the individual classrooms at 6:30 and 7:00

Class lists will be posted in the foyer of the building if you are a new family to the building and do not yet know your child’s teacher.  We do encourage your children to bring their school supplies to deliver to the classroom on the 23rd, so they don’t have that added encumbrance on the first day of school.

We are also thrilled to invite you to stop by our new computer lab to sign up for Parent Portal.  If you signed up for Parent Portal last year you do not need to sign up again this year.  However, we do encourage you to come by and check out the new lab funded in large part by our amazing PTA.

            You will want to stop by the PTA table to sign up to be a member of the strongest PTA in FWISD and to pick up a spirit shirt at the Mustang Mall.  Our PTA will also be holding their annual uniform resale.

            I eagerly anticipate seeing each of you on Thursday the 23rd.  It is going to be a fabulous year!


Take care,


Ms. Buckley
