Once a Pirate, Always a Pirate

This mural, painted by Mrs. Katie Riedinger, Art Teacher, has been installed in the Media Center by UCPS Maintenance Department.

Our Porter Ridge Pirates celebrated the end of the school year in a variety of ways. Following the school wide 'Clap Out', our fifth grade Porter Ridge Pirates had their Promotion Ceremony on Tuesday, June 11, 2014. The students, under the direction of Mrs. Bridget Burrows, Music Teacher, had an outstanding performance of different musical selections.

This was a wonderful way to celebrate the end of their elementary school years at Porter Ridge Elementary! Mrs. Lisa Taylor, Principal, challenged these students to set their standards to a high level as they move on to their different Middle Schools in Union County.

Other grade levels had year-end celebrations from performing plays to award ceremonies. Our Pre-K and Kindergarten students also had graduation ceremonies to mark the next steps in their education at elementary school.
