  • This week's Parent Academy Newsletter topic #5 is addressing spelling and grammar mistakes. It's a good one!

  • We still have quite a few all-remote families who need to pick up their copy of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Stop by anytime from 8am-3pm or let us know if you need a different time.

  • Remember to send Dr. Schoenlank a photo of your family reading our One School One Book together!

  • Please take a few minutes to read this letter from Dr. Schoenlank regarding the Bill Ward Fund, a fund unique to Ridge School.

  • MORNING HEALTH QUESTIONNAIRE….Please remember that we are not allowed to let children into the building without this being completed.  As the weather gets cooler, it’s important that you fill this out before bringing your child to school.

  • NOVEMBER/DECEMBER Calendar…..Here is the calendar for the rest of 2020…November December 2020.pdf

  • HOLIDAY “WISHING’ TREE….There are about four wishes left on our Wishing Tree if you still want to participate.  It is on the front patio during school hours if you want to pick a snowflake with a wish on it.   All gifts need to be returned by Friday.  Thank you in advance!

  • HOLIDAY COIN DRIVE…..the Ridge Leadership Council is once again collecting coins to be able to provide a family with all their holiday needs.  There is a bucket in each classroom if children wish to bring in some coins!


Please read this letter from the Health Office about High Risk COVID Protocols: High Risk Covid Protocols.pdf

All children need to wear a CLEAN mask to school each day….cloth masks can be washed, and others should be swapped out each day.  This preserves the effectiveness of the mask.

When calling your child in sick to the nurse, please be specific about your concerns; do not use vague “isn’t feeling well” – please let me know if they have a stomach ache, cough, sore throat, etc.  Also, if you are emailing the teacher about an absence, please copy Mrs. Manke at
