Parents of students in Miss Straw, Mrs. Wright, Mr. Webber, and Miss. Martin's fifth grade classes are invited to attend an

Jump Rope For Heart

Do you know the warning signs of a heart attack? What about a stroke? Do you know the risk factors for a heart attack or stroke? Wea Ridge Elementary will be participating in the American Heart Association "Jump Rope for Heart". This is a fundraising event for the American Heart Association. The funds that we raise play an important part in trying to defeat heart disease and strokes. We will help provide support in finding new medications, research and spreading the word about warning signs of a heart attack or stroke by participating in this event. Your child will be bringing home an envelope and parent letter the week of February 11th. There will be instructions on how you can obtain donations. You can even help your child raise money online in a safe and secure manner!! This is strictly a voluntary event! All students (whether they collect donations or not) will be jumping rope through the event during PE classes. The forms and money for Jump Rope for Heart will be due back to Mr. Schultheiss by March 1st.


The Tippecanoe School Corporation is partnering with Bright Bytes, an educational research organization, in order to learn more about our students' school and home technology use for learning. We are reaching out to ask you to take part in the Technology & Learning questionnaire. Your participation is essential in helping us form a more complete picture of technology use for learning in your students' lives. Please know that all of your responses will remain anonymous to protect your privacy. 


Additionally, we ask if you have students in multiple buildings, please be sure to fill out the survey for each building. Thank you for your participation in this activity.

Bundle Up


It's cold outside!


TSC policy is that all students MUST go outside unless they have a doctor's note for a specific time frame. We will continue to go outside unless the wind chill is below 20. Please make sure your child has a jacket, hat and gloves for outdoor recess. Recent studies show that outside play helps to develop the prefrontal cortex.  It calms anxiety and refocuses the brain. Sweatshirts and jackets should accompany students to school and recess. Please label your child's belongings either inside the pocket, cuff or on a tag so that when they misplace them we can return them!  Talk to your child about the need to be proactive in dressing for the weather! Thank you for partnering with us to keep your child safe and active!


Schkool Lunch with apple

School Lunch:


Fast food is not permitted in the cafeteria at Wea Ridge. If you are coming to have lunch with your student you may order a hot lunch by calling ahead to the office the morning of your visit or bringing a sack lunch from home. TSC and school policy states that any food purchased as "carryout" is considered "fast food".


We love to have guests eat lunch with us! It is $2.70/Adult and $1.90/Child. Tippecanoe School Corporation Policy does not allow us to charge a guest lunch on a students account. We accept cash or checks. Please be aware, that we are not allowed to give change back, so the correct amount is appreciated.


Thanks so much! If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the school office at 765-471-9321

At this time, some of our playground equipment is not safe for our children to play on.  We have put warning signs up and have taped off the equipment.  The maintenance department is working to make the playground safe for the children.  Thank you for your patience and understanding.
