Dear Families,
Welcome to the 2023-2024 school year at Ridgeview Elementary School!  I hope this school year finds you all in good health and high spirits. As the new academic year begins, I would like to extend a warm welcome to each and every one of you to our school community.
At Ridgeview Elementary, we believe in providing an emotionally nurturing and inclusive environment that promotes academic excellence and personal growth. Our dedicated team of educators and staff are committed to cultivating a love for learning while ensuring the holistic development of our students.  Ensuring the physical and emotional safety and well-being of our students is our utmost priority. From the moment our students step into the school until they leave for the day, we are committed to maintaining a secure and healthy learning environment.

Our vision is to empower our students with the knowledge, skills, and values they need to become responsible global citizens and successful individuals. With a focus on promoting critical thinking, creativity, and collaboration, we aim to prepare our students for the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead.  Further, we firmly believe that education is a partnership between the school and families. We encourage you to actively participate in your child's education by attending parent-teacher meetings, engaging in school events and volunteer opportunities, and supporting their learning journey at home. Your involvement and support play a crucial role in ensuring our students’ success.  Together, we can make a positive impact on the lives of our children and shape their bright future.
On behalf of the entire Ridgeview staff, I extend our sincerest gratitude for entrusting us with the education and well-being of your children. We look forward to an exceptional academic year filled with growth, learning, and meaningful experiences.
Warmest regards,
Mike Zatzke
Principal, Ridgeview Elementary School
