I want to welcome you to Ridge Hill School. We are a PreK-6 School serving a wonderfully diverse community. Our school works along with families to grow our children to be respectful, responsible and safe individuals. We work to teach our children to be deep thinkers, form their own opinions and thoughts, while striving to make our world a better place.
Our school prides itself on parent communication and family engagement. It is very important that families are kept in the loop of their child's needs and progress. We encourage parent communication through phone calls, face to face meetings, Dojo messages and emails. Ridge Hill is a PBIS school where all classroom teachers have access and utilize class Dojo to reward students for good behavior, making good choices, working hard, problem solving and being a good friend. All students participate in STARS Rewards days and students can use their Dojo points to purchase rewards like small trinkets, lunch with the principal, Ridge Hill mugs, homework passes and a large variety of other student friendly rewards.
There are many opportunities during the year for families to support and participate in school wide events. We hope you will consider joining and supporting our PTA. All money raised goes directly back to enrichment opportunities for our students.
Currently each student will receive a district Chromebook after signing the technology agreement. District Chromebooks are to be used for school-based work only. Students should not use them to download any home games or watch inappropriate videos from You Tube or any other site. Chromebooks should be charged each night at home and brought to school fully charged. Please keep them away from food, drink or pets. Please take good care of the device as there is a fee for broken and damaged units.
We are glad you have joined us and hope that your family feels the love and care that each of our staff members has to offer to your family. We are here to support you and navigate the waters of growing children to be the best they can be academically, socially and emotionally.
Stacie D'Antonio, Principal
