Good day Rock Ridge! I wanted to take this opportunity to celebrate some of the great things that I love about Rock Ridge, the staff, the community and especially the kids:

  • ●  I know students who started at Rock Ridge as Kindies and are now in 4th grade. How amazing it is to watch them grow up along with their parents.

  • ●  We love your kids and their parents and we love and support each other. When one of us is in need, we are there for them.

  • ●  Our students are getting better at math, my favorite subject.

  • ●  I get to share my passion for archery with fifty kids this year during archery


  • ●  Our building engineer, Richard Martinez. I love when he takes time to play his guitar and sing for all of us in front of the school before school starts. Also, how he is here at 5:00am when we have weather to make sure that the snow is removed and ice melt is applied to make it safe for all of us.

  • ●  The front office staff who are there for everyone for anything and everything.

  • ●  All the staff members who volunteer their time to bring kickball club, book club, Minecraft club, Green Team, Spanish Club, Pokeman club and more to our students.

  • ●  Parents who make coming to work fun. i.e. Two moms dressed up as dinosaurs and mock fighting in the front lobby on Halloween, high fives mixed in with the kids at drop off, bonding moments as we wallow in our mutual disappointment in Colorado State Universitys football performance this year and so much more.

  • ●  The stories parents share with me. They are fun and sometimes really funny. How many people can say they harvested a Thanksgiving turkey with their truck? One of my parents can.

  • ●  Having an amazing Thanksgiving lunch created by Robin in the kitchen with kids and parents every year.

  • ●  Throwing the football with a bunch of screaming 3rd graders, or 4th graders, or 5th graders or 6th graders.

  • ●  Mochas at car loop.

    There are so many things that I am thankful for being the Principal at Rock Ridge and this is only a taste. With Thanksgiving just around the corner and Christmas shortly behind that this is a time to celebrate friends, family and what we are thankful for. Thank you Rock Ridge community.
