    Welcome 2016-2017 Coyote Ridge students, families, and community members!

    "Coyote Ridge will inspire our learners to become innovative, collaborative, life-long designers who contribute to an ever-changing global community."

    We are celebrating our 12th year serving the children and families of Lewisville and Carrollton and take great pride in the diversity of our amazing campus.

    At CRE, we believe as educators we must continue with professional learning to provide the most relevant, engaging, and collaborative environment to promote 21st century learning for our children. We will incorporate PBLs (project based learning), Thinking Maps, Inquiry based learning, Math Investigations, History Alive, e-portfolios through Google sites, as well as assimilate additional technology where children can collaborate, communicate, and create while pushing themselves to think at a more critical level.

    For the 16-17 school year, we are excited to begin our journey as a Leader in Me school based on the work of Stephen Covey. Staff began training this summer on Covey's The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People model, tailored to children and teachers in an education setting, to embrace a process that helps develop the essential life skills and characteristics students need in order to thrive in the 21st century. Centered around the 7 Habits of Happy Kids, The Leader in Me allows teachers to guide students as they find their strengths and what makes them special.

    Our campus goals will also continue to focus on Learning Standards and Cultural Proficiency. During our professional learning, the staff will be analyzing the content standards, processing standards, and looking at our data in all grade levels. All staff chose a vertical curricular strand committee for monthly PLCs which will allow for common vocabulary being used throughout the school, as well as identifying campus strengths and areas needing to be addressed. Through this process, we feel we will be better prepared to design our lessons focusing on the needs of all of our students.

    We have a creative year that lies ahead and we can’t wait to include our parents and community members every step along the way!

    We hope to see all of you at Coyote Ridge and welcome your support and involvement. Please know our doors are always open to discuss our most precious commodity, your children.

    Go Coyotes!
