Meet your Principal
Happy September, Owl Families!
Aspen Ridge students, teachers, and staff are off to a great start this fall! The beginning of a new school year always brings a sense of excitement. It's a time that marks a fresh start, new possibilities, and great promise. I am beyond impressed with the vast growth I have already witnessed in our Owls as they have settled into their classrooms, connected with their teachers, and made new friends.
To promote social and emotional learning, we will introduce and focus on the 7 Mindsets throughout the school year. These 7 Mindsets provide the foundation for resilience, motivation, and meaning in life. Our first Mindset, Everything is Possible, will be introduced to students during the September Early Release Assembly, and as a school we will practice living this mindset throughout the month. Beginning in October, parents and students will be invited to join us virtually to recognize the Owls that have gone above and beyond to demonstrate the monthly mindset. You will be notified one week before the October Early Release Assembly by your homeroom teacher if your student will be recognized.
As a school community, we work together to support each student academically, socially, and emotionally throughout the school year. Aspen Ridge experienced great success last year because we banded together as a strong, committed community while remaining focused on our mission and vision. We rely heavily on our partnerships with parents to provide a top-notch learning environment for every student. Even though this year looks a little different than last year, we are hopeful that our community will continue to stay diligent and collaborative to maintain a safe and healthy learning environment for our Owls.
