Welcome to Garden Ridge Elementary

 
Welcome Wolf Families and Friends to Garden Ridge Elementary! 

This school year begins my 18th year in education and my 9th here at GRES where I am honored to serve as principal of this amazing school.    
 
At Garden Ridge Elementary, we have skillful and compassionate teachers and staff who focus on creating classroom activities that engage our students in learning.  Our mission is to help every child feel welcome, connected, and a part of the GRES family.  Together, we strive to challenge each student to grow in his or her academic abilities and to be college-ready when they graduate from Comal ISD. 
 
Please be sure to take a peek at some of the upcoming event dates and be sure to mark your calendars. 
We have a very strong PTA program and throughout the year we have multiple opportunities for family members to volunteer at our school, so we hope to see you around campus.  As partners in your child’s education, we encourage you to communicate with us regularly with any successes/questions/concerns that you may have.
     
 
Let’s make this a great year! 
 
With Pack Pride,
Jennifer Schultz
Principal
