We would like to welcome our new families to East Ridge, and welcome our returning families back for another great year! With your support, our PTA is able to fund programs, equipment, and supplies that benefit all the students of East Ridge, as well as events that provide fun opportunities for all of our families. Thank you for your support and membership. We could not do any of this without you!

Booked 4 Lunch

3rd - 5th graders are invited to join Booked 4 Lunch. It is designed to foster a deeper appreciation for literature and love of reading. Students will engage in small group discussions, as they explore different genres. Grade level groups will assemble during lunch recess for approximately 25 minutes on a biweekly basis. There will be five meetings for each grade. During each meeting, the students will engage in lively discussion while enjoying a book-related snack.
