We are excited for all that this new month brings for Pine Ridge, and I hope to see most of you at parent-teacher conferences this month! I pray that during this Lent season you are able to reflect on God’s goodness. May His blessings be upon each of you.

In partnership with you,


Skating Party

South Side/Pine Ridge Parent Board is hosting an all-school skating night at Rollxscape on Tuesday, March 28. Join us from 6-8pm for skating, fun and fellowship. Admission and skate rental costs are covered by the Parent Board. Concessions are available to purchase by families. We look forward to seeing you there!

Parent Teacher Conferences

Spring parent teacher conferences will be on March 20 and 27 (virtual option) from 4-8pm. Signup information went out on February 10th. If you need these instructions sent out again, please email the office.

Parent board would like to bless our teachers with a meal during conferences. Please sign up here to help prepare a delicious taco meal of them Monday, March 20th.

Book Fair at South Side

South Side will be hosting a book fair the week of March 20th. Look for dates and times coming soon to volunteer or come and shop!

Tulip Time ’23

An email was sent out on February 13th asking for your child’s preference for the Tulip Time parade this year. If you have not already filled it out, please fill out this Tulip Time Survey so we can make sure we are prepared with the correct props.

Hearing and Vision Screening

The Allegan County Health Department will be in our school March 6-8 for Hearing and Vision Screening for all students. If your child wears glasses, please be sure he/she has them at school. If you prefer to not have your child screened, please stop in the office by Wednesday, March 1, 2023 to fill out the provided opt-out form that provides documentation of a recent screening elsewhere.

Parent Board

Parent Board is looking ahead to next year! Would you like to be part of our team? Help us plan/execute Walkathon, show teachers our appreciation throughout the year, and plan some fun events! Please contact Tami Schippers  or Emily Baker if you’d like to hear more.

Elementary Athletic Opportunities

Running Clubs

The PR Girl’s Running Club and TTQ (the boy’s running club) are both looking for coaches for this spring! We are so excited to offer these opportunities to our students again but need parent volunteers to make it work. For more information or to volunteer, please email the office. We hope to get registrations open soon but need the volunteers first.
