    Shadow Ridge Middle School welcomes the families of incoming sixth graders with the following message:  We are excited to have some new faces walking our halls next year.  The PTA at SRMS would love to get you plugged into our school.  Joining PTA is one of the quickest ways to get to know the Principals, Counselors and teachers at Shadow Ridge as well as students with whom your kids will be going to school.  Middle school can be a big transition and joining the PTA helps to keep you connected, provides networking opportunities, allows you to be a role model to your student and provides you the opportunity to speak up about what is important.  For interest in any of the above positions please contact Megan Toole-Hall via email (mtoole@farmersagent.com) or cell phone (469-222-5258).

    EVENTS:

    National Library Week will be celebrated Monday, April 8 through Friday, April 12.

    State mandated STAAR testing begins Tuesday and Wednesday, April 9 and 10, with fourth grade writing and fifth grade math on the first day and fifth grade reading on the second day.  It is very important that all students who are testing get a good night of sleep, eat an appropriate breakfast, remain hydrated, dress comfortably, consider leaving all electronics at home, and arrive at school early to settle in for testing.  Every family needs to know that the entire campus will be closed to ALL visitors for ALL grade levels on testing days - meaning no volunteer services, no mystery readers, no lunch visitors, etc.  These days must allow us to focus on a quiet, uninterrupted environment that also allows for the administration, office, and support staff to be available for testing purposes as mandated by the Texas Education Agency.  Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.

    The weather is warming up and many students walk or ride their bikes to school during this time of the year. Please take this opportunity to remind students to be aware of their surroundings and encourage them to travel in groups to ensure safety from those they may not know. Additionally, remind them to report anything to a trusted adult that causes them concern.  Student safety is a priority in LISD and together we will keep our children safe.

    The Flower Mound Police Department is going to be having a Bike with the Blue event on Saturday,  May 11, 2019 from 2:00pm to 4:00pm, in the police department parking lot and are trying to get kids of Elementary school age to attend.  They will have obstacle courses and different things for them to do and will conclude the day with a bike ride around town.  Family members are welcomed to ride with us on the ride around town and we even had a couple try some of the obstacles last year. 

    Thank you for your support and involvement at Liberty Elementary School and have a great weekend and week!
