• Welcome, Parents!


     Welcome!   Cypress Ridge is very fortunate to have so many dedicated parents who are supportive of our efforts and involved in the goings-on of our school.  We all recognize that it takes a real team effort on the part of both teachers and parents to ensure a successful school career for each child. This page consolidates several pieces of information from our website in hopes of making it quicker and a little easier to access what you need.

          Important information about volunteering is located through the links on the left and in the updated Parent Handbook (see below)
          Led by a hard-working group of parents, the PTO contributed funds to pay for various activities during the year.  Our PTO was instrumental in establishing after-school clubs for our students several years ago.  Membership is only $5 a person and can be paid at the August Open House or anytime during the school year. 
          Click HERE to visit our PTO page and learn more about how you can participate.
