This is our first year at Ringgold Elementary and I am so impressed with the teachers and staff. Mr Raines himself is one of the most hands on principals I believe I have ever met. He personally helped my child when her vocabulary words were too easy. He went and found another vocabulary book that was harder for her, to make sure she was being challenged. He makes every parent feel important. You know that he wants the best for your child. My child is in the Horizon program which is their gifted program and is thriving in there and I feel being challenged to reach her potential. The way the teachers and staff care for the students it is no wonder we were chosen this year to be a Ga. School of Excellence for 2006. That is something that we already knew but now so does everyone else.

My daughter and son attend Ringgold Primary and Elementary, respectively. The teachers and staff are wonderful- friendly, hard-working, and always helpful. I can't praise them enough. They work hard to meet the needs of all the students- from the gifted, to those that need a little more help, & to those with special needs. Tutoring is offered after school, as well as other enrichment programs (clubs) and currently they have a grant offering an after-school program full of fun and learning activities- free. They also have summer camp (12 days). They kids always look forward to going. Parent involvement is always encouraged.

My son, has been at RPS and RES since kindergarten. He will be in 5th grade this year and we have loved our time spent here. RES has the most caring teachers and new principal, former vice principal, Mr. Raines, is doing a wonderful job! We look forward to our younger son, attending RPS in 2006.

We love RES! My oldest son attended RES from 2nd-5th grades. My yongest is now in 5th grade. We have been impressed with the overall quality of the teachers. Mr.G is the BEST! My youngest had him last year and really grew-up in Mr.G's class. He is in the gifted program and in the pod which changes classes. I feel he is getting a quality education because he has the best of the best teachers and is thriving. We feel that the teachers and principals, Mr.Burroughs and Mr.Raines, genuinely care for the students. Another unsung hero at RES is Coach Sanders. We need more teachers like him. He and Mr. G are both strict, fair, genuine and caring. They have a high level of expectations and hold students, parents, and other teachers to those standards. I have been quite involved w/RES and have loved all of my years volunteering. Thanks!

I love this school for my child and he enjoys it also. I feel that more hands on projects would benefit the kids more instead of constant book work. It is known that hands on is much more fun and that they learn more when seeing the experiment or project than just reading about it. They also need better quality field trips. Field trips need to be fun. 4th grade has been on 4 field trips and 3 of them were to the same place that most of the kids do not enjoy. They need fun field trips, more or them outside instead of being couped up all day, fun and exciting places to go. Over all this school is a good place for a child to learn.

This is our first year at RES but I am so far pleased with everything. I do think, though, that the principal should be seen more around the school. I see the assistant out and about all the time. Also about parent involvement, there are parents that choose not to get involved in school, but I know that I asked for more information about being involved in PTO and other things that needed help, and no one has contacted me.

I love Ringgold Elementary School! Mr. Burroughs and Mr. Raines are excellent leaders and the teachers and staff are awesome. Without a doubt, Mr. Giannamore is the best teacher in the state of Georgia, firm yet fair, tough yet affectionate. My only negative comment about RES is the lack of involvement by the parents. It seems that the same few parents tend to be really involved in all of the events. If more parents were involved in their childrens' school activities, everyone would benefit...especially the children. Parents: It is your responsibility to raise your children...you need to reinforce and encourage what these excellent teachers are trying to instill into your children! Our future is in their hands. Please...let's raise a generation of smart, caring people to help take care of us in our old age!
