•      Welcome to Third Grade here at Ragsdale Elementary School! My name is Melissa Moody and I will be your child’s teacher this year. I am looking forward to a wonderful year. We will have lots of opportunities to get to know each other this school year, but I wanted to take a moment to tell you a little about myself.

         I have been married for 22 years. My husband, Brian, and I have a daughter named Chloe. She keeps us very busy! She is a senior at Paulding County High School, where she attends the Academy of Science, Research, and Medicine (Magnet Program). Chloe is an active equestrian and shows her horses frequently. She is also very active in the 4-H Horse & Pony Club, as well as FFA, where she is an officer. When we are not at horse shows, my family enjoys playing with our dog named Major, going to the beach, and watching football. (I am a bit of a college football junkie!)

             I believe that the partnership between school and home is most important for your child’s success. I encourage you to contact me with any questions or concerns that you may have. I am really looking forward to this year!
