The Ripple Effect: Catch the Wave
PBIS Mission Statement: The mission of Rippleside's Catch the Wave program is to create an effective learning community in which all members are actively contributing through the consistent practice of respect, responsibility, safety and positive attitudes.
Dear parents and community members,
I am certain that Rippleside is one of the greatest elementary schools. On a daily basis, students greet me each morning as they enter the school building. On a daily basis, students say thank you to the cafeteria staff when they are handed their lunch trays. Each month, we are improving our data in reading and math. As I walk the halls, staff and students are smiling and enjoying life. I am grateful to be the principal of this building. Thank you, parents, for being understanding when situations are difficult or mistakes are made. I am certain about one more thing, we do make mistakes, but we learn together through them. Continue to join with us to provide the best education possible for our students.

We have decreased our referrals each year. Very exciting! I would like you to be aware that the most consistent misbehavior in our school is disrespect towards adults and students. Together, we will continue to teach the appropriate ways to interact with peers and all adults in the community to help sustain our safe school.
