We are so excited to have kids and families back at Pine Ridge! There is an air of excitement each morning and the hallways are full of lively chatter and laughter. Thank you for making the start of the year great! As we start to live into the rhythm of “school life” it makes me reflect on how we live through seasons of life, and of the passage from Ecclesiastes 3:1 that says, “There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens.” I want to remember this, there is a time for EVERY activity–and I don’t know about you, but that gives me a sense of freedom. As we live out this year together I pray that all our activities would be centered around our highest priority, Jesus. That we would set up our days with things that matter and that help us lead others to live their lives for Jesus. Thank you for your partnership this year. Happy 2022-23 school year!

- During pick up, please remember to use your hazard lights from when you turn in the drive until your student is safely in the vehicle.
