Hello parents!
I am so happy to have your student in my class this year! 
This is my first year teaching, and I'm excited to be teaching Kindergarten. I graduated from Sam Houston State University in December of 2016 with my Bachelors degree in interdisciplinary studies. I did my student teaching in Tomball at Timber Creek Elementary. The first seven weeks were in Kindergarten, and the second seven weeks were in Fifth grade. I'm eager to work with you and your child this year, together we will have a successful and great year. 
When I'm not teaching I love spending time with my family, especially my brother who is a Junior at Stephen F. Austin State University (Eat Em Up Kats!!) Our sibling rivalry keeps things fun in our family . When I am not teaching I enjoy crafting, like painting, wood work, and vinyl. I am always available and feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns you may have throughout the year.. I'm looking forward to getting to know you and your child more as the year progresses. 
It's going to be a great year!
Decker Strong, We Can, We Will!
Ms. Ryder

Our field trip to the Oil Ranch is this Wednesday!  Please make sure your child is wearing our black DPES shirt (or a black t-shirt) and tennis shoes and has a sack lunch w/a drink. Everything needs to be disposable. We will be loading the buses at 8:50am and will be headed to the ranch at 9:00am. All children will ride the bus to and from our field trip. If you want to take your child home afterwards, you will have to follow the bus back to DPES and then sign him/her out in the front office. We are looking forward to having a fun day!

Easter Egg hunt UPDATE

Due to the weather, we will have to move the Egg Hunt inside the building.  Unfortunately, parents will not be able to attend due to having to do one class at a time and we will not know the exact time for each class.
Thank you
