Principal's Message

Welcome Back! Well, not quite yet, but soon.   We hope that you are having a fabulous summer, but we really do miss seeing all of you - our students, families, and school community members.   Ridgedale is definitely under construction, and, although the new addition will not be completed before the opening of school, we will be ready for grades 1-5 to make their way up the steps and into the building on Tuesday, August 21. The doors open for Kindergarten on Thursday, August 23 and for PreK on Monday, August 27.  


We will have Back-To-School and Student Move-In evening on Monday, August 20. This is a great opportunity for students and parents to meet teachers and find classrooms before the first day of school. For your convenience, teachers will present their Back-To-School information at 4:00, 4:40, and 5:20. Students are welcome to “move-in” that evening by dropping off any school supplies they wish to have leave in their classrooms in preparation for the first day back. 


Looking forward to seeing you on Back-To-School/Student Move-In evening!
