PTA Coffee Open House

Breakfast with NSD Superintendent Dr. Reid at East Ridge
Breakfast Club with Dr. Reid on May 24th
8:45-9:15 Parent Session in Library
9:30-10:00 Student session in Room 10
10:00-12:00 Classroom visits

School hours starting Monday, March 11th

School starts at 9:00 AM and ends at 3:40 PM, Monday - Friday.

No early release Wednesdays, except on June 5.

School busses will come 10 minutes early.

You can drop off the kids at school at 8:40 AM, no earlier than that.


When you drop your kid(s), remember to pull all the way forward, stop, drop and roll.
It's tempting to watch our kid(s) from the car walking down the hallway, but there are other parents who need to drop their kid(s) too.

Keep traffic moving and drop-off lanes from getting clogged. Same thing with picking up.
No cutting the line.

Buddy Bench

Do you know about buddy bench, more importantly, does your kid know about buddy bench?

A buddy bench is a simple idea to eliminate loneliness and foster friendship on the playground.

There's one in our playground and it's a great way for kids to make new friends, or learn new games!

Remind your kids to always remember to glance over at the school's Buddy Bench to invite new friends to join in on the fun.

Reminder: our parking lot traffic is one way lane (see the image below).

Safety First!
- ALWAYS use a crosswalk to cross in parking lot, whether you're alone or with your kid(s).
- SLOW DOWN. Speed limit is 25 mph on Saybrook and 216th Ave NE. School zone speed limit is 20 mph and parking lot speed limit is 5 mph.
- Do NOT drop off your kid(s) before 8:50 AM.


At pick-up and drop-off lane, remember:
- Pull ALL THE WAY FORWARD continuously so there are no gaps.
- Put down the cellphone.
- Do NOT get out of your car.
- Do NOT cut in line.
- If you're coming in during pick up time from Saybrook and there are cars waiting on the left side of the parking lot/ the car line is at fire hydrant (cross walk), please go around the parking lot.
- Move swiftly.

Gold Membership


East Ridge Elementary PTA has recently been recognized by Washington State PTA as a Gold Membership Growth Award recipient!

PTAs are presented with this award for enrolling members equaling at least 110% of their previous year’s total membership. That means our PTA is growing! 

Thank you to everyone who has become a member so far this year: YOU are the reason our PTA achieved this award!


East Ridge students got to participate in Hour of Code.
The Kindergartners, 1st and 2nd graders did Lightbot coding and the 3rd, 4th and 5th graders did Dance Party coding.
Even though it's not Hour of Code anymore, kids can still do coding at home for free.
