Principal's Message

Principal Flores Dear Parents/Guardians,

I am happy to welcome you and your child to Sally Ride and the 2019-2020 school year! I am proud to announce that Sally Ride Elementary has been recognized by the Florida Department of Education as an “A” school. I want to acknowledge our teachers, staff, students, parents, and community for helping us achieve the “A” status.

Sally Ride’s faculty and staff are committed to working as a team with the support of the students and their families to continue accelerating student learning.  Research clearly supports that when parents/guardians are involved in their child’s education, there is a greater likelihood of academic success for the child.  I encourage you to become an active participant at Sally Ride Elementary through volunteering in the ADDitions program and becoming a member of our Student Advisory Council (SAC). Together we will continue ensuring academic excellence at Sally Ride.

We are excited to announce that we are now a 1:1 digital device school. This means each student will have access to an i-Pad or Laptop computer  each day. These devices will stay in the classroom but are checkout out to the students, so please remind them to take care of these devices and review the rules and procedures that will be shared with your family. For more information on our digitally integrated classrooms, check out the resources on our school website and be sure to attend parent events scheduled throughout the school year! I would also like to invite you to visit our school’s website and subscribe to ClassDojo, Twitter, and to “Like Us” on Facebook. You can also stay connected to your child’s progress through Skyward, which you can access on our school site as well as through

Welcome to a new exciting and productive school year. I look forward to working with you on this journey of accelerating student academic achievement. Thank you for all you do.

Warmly, Raquel Flores
