Hello Ridgewood Families!

We had a great week of school this week! This next week we will kicked off our annual Color Run Fundraiser. We are off to a great start! See the section below for more info.

Next week will be our first RMS Table meeting! See the info below for the date and time.

Also, just a reminder that October 6th is a professional development day for teachers. There will be no school for students that day. Teachers will be attending training on supporting students with Dyslexia.

Have a great weekend!

Fox Football Games and Middle School Students

Fox High School encourages students and their families to attend Friday night football games, but during the 2023-2024 athletic season the high schools are requiring all middle school students to be accompanied by their parent or guardian to attend the football games. Reminder: These are school sponsored events and all school rules still apply. Students can be disciplined at school for any behavior issues during these games.

Chess Club

The Chess Club will meet the 1st and 3rd Tuesdays of the month from 3:00 pm until 4:30 pm. Rides must be here promptly at 4:30 pm. Permission slips are available in room 105.

Cell Phone Policy

Just a reminder that cell phone usage is not allowed during the school day at RMS. Cell phone usage will not be allowed during class, during passing time, or during lunches. Students can use cell phones before and after school. If you need to contact your student, please call the office.
