Ridgewood School


This week at Ridgewood

“The way to get started is to quit talking and begin doing!“ ——Walt Disney Roadrunner Parents: The third quarter has come and will be gone after this Friday and I hope the same for winter.  The days will be getting longer and warmer.  Students and teachers are working hard and pushing through the final stages of cabin fever. Here are a few things happening at Ridgewood: 1.  Student Articles - On Sunday, March 16th, Ridgewood will have articles from our some of our 5th grade students. Thank you to Lexis Fuller, Acacia Fiedler, Ben Samuelson, Jaerica Anderson, and Dominic Ferrari. 2.  Early Dismissals - On Wednesday (3/12), Thursday (3/13), and Friday (3/14)we will have 2:10 dismissals. 3. Student Attendance Day - Monday, March 31, Students WILL BE in attendance... 

Good Morning Staff!!

I wanted to see if this would help with planning.  I will be sending a weekly email for you to help plan for your week and any important information which needs to be shared.  My goal is to have this in your inbox by every Friday evening.  For those who watched the Super Bowl, this quote is fitting.  I think this quote can also translate into our school.  Our students who don’t understand or have a hard time completing work can sometimes lead to the frustration that we continue to poke or beat them down until they magically get it done.  Maybe we need to find a new way???  I believe this is why we have the RTI days.  Thank you to everyone for their participation during RTI days.  I thought we got a lot accomplished and we will continue to push and find focused solutions to help all...
