Most Recent Pics

Here is a look at the gym/cafeteria. You can see the stage in the background.

This is a view from the main hallway looking west out toward main entrance.

This picture is of the media center. You can see the large skylight in the middle.

Here is a picture of a classroom. The blue part of the wall is impact resistant drywall--not paint.

This picture was taken from where the playground will eventually be (the mountains are southwest).

It's Official! We are Thunder Ridge Elementary!

I would like to thank all of the students and parents that submitted names for consideration. I would also like to thank the wonderful PTA moms that joined me on the Naming Committee. As a Naming Committee we sifted through the submitted names, weighed pro and cons, and used consensus and voting procedures to decide on three potential names--Thunder Ridge, Skyview, and Hillside. Those names were submitted to the the Board of Education two weeks ago for their consideration. Tonight the Board of Education announced that our new school will officially be named Thunder Ridge Elementary!

The Special Needs school being built right next door has been named Horizon School.

The other new elementary school being built behind Wal-Mart has been dubbed Riverview Elementary.

Good Transportation News for Silver Lake

I just received confirmation from the Transportation Department that they will provide busing to all of the students in the Silver Lake neighborhood! As with the concerns from Dalmore Meadows and Sunrise Meadows, it is great to know that the district is willing to work hard and commit resources to find solutions! I hope this news helps brighten your day and relieve some of the stress you might have about attending the new school.

P.S. Soon I will be able to post the three potential new school names we will submit to the Board of Education on March 8th.
