Principal's Message

 Greetings Spring Ridge Community,

I am excited to be the next principal of Spring Ridge Elementary School! I have spent the past month making community visits, collaborating and planning with staff, meeting with parents and actively engaged in all the work required to have a successful school opening. I am originally from North Carolina and have served on many different levels throughout my career as an educator including as a middle school principal and various roles at the district level. I am a student advocate and make my aim to make all decisions in the best interest of children.
I welcome each of you to join us in our continued journey and movement Full STEAM Ahead!
Joining a veteran staff that is fully committed to the success of each child is nothing short of a blessing.
I look forward to serving the families of our community and building relationships with our stakeholders along the way. I welcome you to learn more about the great things we are doing at SRES by visiting our school webpage. I also encourage all our parents to become and/or remain active participants in their child’s education by communicating regularly with your child’s teacher, volunteering for school events and joining our PTA.
In closing, I want to thank each person that has come by to welcome me to SRES either by email, phone or a personal visit. I know we will continue to do great things in the lives of the students we educate and am looking forward to the journey, moving Onward and Upward!
Yours in Service,

Pattie Barnes
