Welcome to the 2020-2021 School Year!
I am so honored to be joining the amazing Ridgewood school and Raven community this year.
As we are spending the first semester of this school year in Remote Learning – I want to let you know what we are focusing on. Social-emotional learning is extremely important in a Remote Environment. Every classroom is spending the first 30 minutes of their school day working on social and emotional skills. We have surveys for students and families to ensure we are supporting families as they need.
We are also focusing on academics. We have moved from the emergent situation of last spring to remote teaching and learning this first semester that covers all Core Content areas. Teachers are working hard with students every day to build up skills from last spring and this year's standards to ensure that our students are ready for what’s ahead.
We value the support that our families and community provide to us through our school and PTA partnership. You are your children’s first teachers and we know that we cannot do our jobs without you. If you are looking for ways to support the school, please contact our office or the Ridgewood PTA. Families, please connect with your children’s teachers or myself if you have any questions or concerns.
Even though we are remote this first semester, please know that the school staff is working hard to replicate the magic that happens in the regular classroom into their online learning experiences and your children are doing a wonderful job of learning 21st-century technology skills and their grade-level standards.
Thank you for supporting our students, staff, and school community.
