A Message from Our Principal

Greetings Kings Ridge Family!

What a great first week! We could not be more pleased about how well the first week has gone. We appreciate your and your child’s patience this week as we establish strong procedures, routines, and expectations that lay the foundation for a positive school culture; believe us when we say that we are just as eager to dive into academics as you are!

This week, we taught all school routines and procedures for entering the building in the morning, classroom entry, and exit. We also engaged our students in conversations regarding positive culture, empathy among students, conflict resolution, ability to connect grit and positive mindset with success, and goal-setting. Next week, teachers will begin to introduce content, doing so in the context of setting up their own particular classroom routines and procedures and providing students with opportunities to practice. We are expecting high standards from our students this year. We are closely watching academic progress, behavior and attitudes and dress code expectations. Our school is the best preparatory academy in Arizona. Our expectations exceed all others. I ask of you that your present your support for our programs and our staff. I ask that you talk and communicate with your children the need for consistent respect for this amazing academy. We are excited for our STEM units to come.

Next week, we will issue students a laptop computer to be passed out every morning that they will use every day at school. In order to be issued that computer, and you must return the computer understanding signature page.The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically. Intelligence plus character - that is the goal of true education.  Martin Luther King, Jr.

Sincerely,
