Welcome

Welcome to Ralph Moody Elementary!!  It is an honor to serve as the principal of this school and work with the staff and community to make a difference in the lives of our students.  It is with dedication, passion, and hard work that the staff at Ralph Moody strive to provide our students with the best educational experience that our school offers. This year we will continue to focus on quality instruction by implementing our new K-2 literacy program called Super Kids, continuing to perfect our Bridges math implementation, engaging students in their learning through goal setting, increasing the academic rigor, improving reading comprehension through writing, and utilizing strategies that are effective for all learners.  I am excited to share that by the end of October, 2017, we will implement a 1:2 iPad initiative in grades K-2.  Additionally, we will increase opportunities for STEM learning in grades 3-5.  It is our hope that STEM learning will integrated in our K-2 curriculim the following year.
