A Message from the Principal
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
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.
D. Kevin Myers, Principal
