Welcome to Ridgewood

Principal's Message


Welcome to the Ridgewood Elementary School webpage. We are a Kindergarten through 4th grade school in East Moline, IL.

It is hard for me to believe it is already October!  We have so many great events this month - I know it will be November before we know it!

Be sure to check out the calendar for the events this month.  The Book Fair will be here October 20th.  Your child's class will visit the book fair during the week.  You will also have opportunities to visit the fair during the events that week (Parfaits for Parents, Grandparents/VIP day, and Family Fun Night).  Be sure to look in your child's Wednesday folder for more information on these events!

Thank you to everyone who donated to the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge!  Ridgewood raised over $200!  You can watch Mrs. Lensing (and Ms. Anderson) have ice water poured on them by following this link:  https://new.livestream.com/EMSD37/events/3338952

As always - please feel free to contact me with questions and/or concerns -

The 7 Habits Pledge

I pledge today the Habits I’ll use,

Become a strong leader and spread the good news.

I will be Proactive - I’m in charge of me.

Begin With the End in Mind- Planning is the key.

Put First Things First - I will work then play.

Think Win-Win- with people every day.

I will listen then speak-so we can all be heard.

It’s how it works best-understand is the word.

I will Synergize - because together is best.

I will Sharpen my Saw - to take care of the rest.
