Welcome to The Ridge

A Message from the Principal    
November 2016

Eagle X-Games 2016 took place on Friday, September 16th and was a huge success due in large part to the many parents who donated their time and resources.  Overall, our students and community helped us raise over $40,000 for our school.  This is the 3rd year in a row our support has topped the $40,000 threshold.  In addition to the cool prizes provided by our PTC, students were treated to our version of “The Ridge” Has Got Talent.  All of the proceeds from Eagle X Games go directly to projects sponsored by our PTC.  We are truly blessed to have such wonderful parent and community support at “The Ridge.”  Thanks again to all who helped make this year’s Eagle X-Games one to remember.

Fall Intersession continues to be popular with several of our students.  During Fall Break, over 90 MRIS students participated in enrichment and intervention activities.  From Wesley Woods, to Cooking Classes and Cheer Camp, our students took advantage of a variety of offerings.  As Intersession continues to grow and offer additional programming for our students, we hope you and your family will consider taking advantage of these activities during our Fall and Spring Intersessions.

On November 21st, we will partner with our sister school, Coulter Grove, for the 4th Annual Toys for Blount Classic.  Parents and students will be asked to make a monetary donation or new toy donation as part of their admission to the basketball game on this evening.  A flyer will be sent home in Friday Folders and information about the game can be found on the MRIS calendar.  We hope you will make plans to attend the game and help our two schools support a worthy cause within our community.

During the week of November 14-18, our school system will celebrate National Education Week.  This week is devoted to recognizing and thanking all of the stakeholders within our community for their support of and hard work in making Maryville City Schools a great place for our students.  As we enter the holiday season and a time of thanksgiving, the faculty and staff of Montgomery Ridge would personally like to thank all of our families for their support.  We wish each of you a magical holiday season and a blessed New Year.

Happy Holidays!
D. Kevin Myers, Principal
