Principal's Message

  • Dear Boulder Ridge Parents/Guardians:

    Wow, I cannot believe that it is already January! We have been so hard at work that time has seemed to fly by! Our students have just finished up their 2nd iReady diagnostic, and boy are the results looking good. We currently have the highest percentage of students performing at grade level that we have had in the past 5 years!!!! Our school has been blessed to have an absolutely amazing group of hard working, dedicated, and caring educators coming here for students each and every day! 

    I want to also take a moment and thank all of the parents and guardians for their continued support of Boulder Ridge and the events and activities that we put on and provide! It is such a joy to go to a family movie night, or a family reading night, or a student of the month assembly and see all of your smiling faces! It is truly a team effort here at Boulder and we appreciate all that you do for your student and for all of us at this school! 

    The Leader in Me is slowly becoming a way of life at Boulder Ridge, with teachers spending the time and energy to explicitly teach the 7 habits to all of our students, from Transitional Kinder all the way up to our 5th graders! Our student lighthouse team puts on a lot of events, and has been running our student of the month assemblies for the past few months! And they have been doing an amazing job! Please keep your eyes open for more events coming soon from our student lighthouse team! 

    I hope you have a wonderful remainder of the school year, and as always, please know that I am here to serve, support, and help in any capacity that I can. Do not hesitate to stop me in the morning or afternoons if there is anything that I can help with. Again, we are a family at Boulder Ridge, and I want to make myself as available for all of our community as I can! 


    Thank you so much,
