Welcome to




The Ridge School HSA is a non-profit organization comprised of parents/guardians of students, faculty and administration of Ridge School.

We support enriching experiences for our children and provide interesting and important information to parents/guardians throughout the year.

This website contains important information for parents of Ridge School students including how you can help make Ridge school better. Please refer to it throughout the year.




Book Fair

Nov 12-14

From Dog Man to Pete the Cat, we have all your children's favorites on hand.  All classes will have an opportunity to visit the fair.

Report Cards are available after 4:00 p.m. today.  Please read Dr. Schoenlank’s letter about the grading system, and how to access your child’s report card.Report Cards Dec 2019.pdf 

We are still looking for gently used outdoor plastic playhouses that can be used by our K-2 students on the playground. The ones we have are showing their age! If you would be interested in donating a playhouse, please contact Dr. Schoenlank.

GEOGRAPHY BEE:  The Geography Bee test for those 4th and 5th graders who signed up will now be held on Thursday at 9:00 a.m.

HEALTH OFFICE:  We are still seeing a number of viruses with fevers, and strep throat.  If your child complains of a sore throat and/or stomachache, please have them checked by a physician to avoid infecting others.  And children need to be fever-free for 24 hours before returning to school.

2019-2020 School Year


As parents, we have the unique opportunity to directly impact the programs that will enhance our children's learning experiences by contributing to Friends of Ridge (FOR). Unlike the HSA operating budget which covers things such as upgrades to facilities and technology, Friends of Ridge donations are used solely to sponsor enrichment programs that are not paid for by the Board of Education. These additional programs make our children's experience at Ridge Elementary School not just memorable but truly extraordinary.
