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.

First I want to thank all of the parents and staff members that made our October events run so smoothly!  We could not have done it without you!

We narrowly missed our goal of selling 500 pies for the Market Day Pie Fundraiser.  We sold 442 pies - thank you for your support!  Pie pickup will be during regular Market Day pickup on Monday, November 10th from 6pm-7pm.

We have Veterans Day off on November 11th.  There will be no WOW after school program on the 11th.

It is truly hard for  me to believe we will soon be into December!  Please make sure to dress your child in layers to keep them warm when they are outside at recess. 

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

Heidi Lensing, Principal

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.
