Join us for the next PTO meeting on Thursday, February 20, 2020 in the Library.

 


Open PTO Positions for 2020-2022

Changes are coming to Ride Elementary.  With the rezoning plans, many of our PTO Board and Committee positions will be vacant next year.  More than ever, it is important to fill these positions as we head into the new year so that Ride has a nice transition.  For reference, the roster below is from this year, with Jacobs Reserve volunteers removed (with a few exceptions) or spots that we know will be vacant.  Truly, all spots are open until volunteers commit and elections for board members are held in the Spring.

 

How can you help?

 

A nominations chairperson has been designated to remain impartial and receiving all inquiries and/or nominations for board and committee positions.  Please contact Alena Gunn, at agunn22@gmail.comif you would like to serve on the committee next year or if you know you will not be able to help.  This information will help us firm up our open positions as we head into the Spring.  Please talk to your friends who live in Panther Creek and get them to join a PTO committee!  Volunteering is more fun when done with friends.

CISD School Messenger

 

Opt-In for SMS Notifications

 

Conroe ISD is in the process of switching emergency notification platforms used to communicate with parents and staff.  Our school district will utilize SchoolMessenger to deliver text messages straight to your mobile phone with important information about events, school closings, safety alerts and more.  This change requires an opt-in to the new system to continue receiving text messages.  You can participate in this free service* just by sending a text message of “Y” or “Yes” to 67587.  You can also opt-out of these messages at any time by simply replying to one of our messages with “Stop”.

 

Failure to opt-in could result in not receiving timely or emergency text messages from Conroe ISD or Sally K. Ride Elementary.  SchoolMessenger is compliant with the Student Privacy Pledge™, so you can rest assured that your information is safe and will never be given or sold to anyone.

Login Overload?

 

We hear it all the time.  In an increasingly digital world, parents are now tasked with keeping track of their child’s education through multiple login sites.  It gets very confusing.  While we can’t eliminate all the different logins as they are necessary to protect the privacy of you and your child, let us try to explain the difference between these sites.

Parent Access Center (PAC)

It is essential that you sign up for a Parent Access Center (PAC) account.  Email is the primary communication tool for all school events and information.  Once you register for a PAC account, you will receive important information regarding absence and tardy notifications, and other important updates. Throughout the year, you can log into PAC to view grades, report cards, attendance, discipline records, cafeteria accounts, and STAAR information.  Simply visit the CISD website (www.conroeisd.net).  Locate the “STUDENTS/PARENTS” tab and proceed to “PARENT ACCESS CENTER”. Click “REGISTER” and follow the simple steps to complete your PAC registration.  Don’t forget, you must re-register every year.

InfoSnap

An online student data validation system for the upcoming school year.  The system is a secure and green process, which allows the district to verify all the student demographic, emergency and medical information for your child prior to the start of the new school year.  The first year, you will need to enter information that the District does not currently have in digital form, such as your student’s Health Information Form.  This online process replaces all the hard copy student registration forms that your child brings home on the first day of school – no more hand cramps from all the paperwork!

Membership Toolkit

It is recommended that you sign up for the PTO’s interactive website through Membership Toolkit (MTK).  MTK is a secure website that allows the PTO to communicate with parents and teachers about what’s happening throughout the year.  The school does not share contact information with the PTO.  Therefore, we need you to provide your contact information so that you can stay in the loop.  Throughout the year, the PTO will email parents about special events, important deadlines, and volunteer opportunities at the school.

 

In addition, if you choose to purchase a PTO membership for $20, you will have access to the online directory.  Signing up is easy.  You register and get login credentials the first year and then each subsequent year, you will need to confirm your information to regain access.  You can also download the Membership Toolkit app to easily access the directory. 

Canvas

Canvas is a district-wide online dashboard to keep track of your student’s coursework.  Canvas is fairly new to the district and while it is more regularly used in the upper levels, it is still being adopted by teachers in the lower levels.  All official teacher websites are now on Canvas, although some teachers prefer to communicate with parents using other tools.

Shutterfly Share Sites

Some teachers use Shutterfly share sites to communicate with their parents.  Shutterfly allows parents to send/receive email, communicate with other parents in the class, view photos from classroom activities on a secured login site, and view a classroom calendar.  It requires that that parent create a Shutterfly account.  Shutterfly sites are not controlled by the school or the PTO.

See Saw

See Saw is an application that allows students, teachers, and parents to share information on a secure account.  Parents must register to use.  Teachers using this app will provide information at the start of the school year.

Class Dojo 

Class Dojo is a communication tool that connects teachers, parents and students with a secure account.  Parents must register to use.  Teachers using this app will provide information at the start of the school year.
