Weekly  Update

Good afternoon, Rocket families! 

This is Erika Bower, Superintendent of Ridgedale Local Schools, where our mission is to empower students to reach their full potential while focusing on learning, safety, partnerships with our community, and fiscal responsibility.

We are halfway through quarter 3! Midterms are officially available on Friday, but remember you can check your child’s grades at any time on PowerSchool. As we continue through the remainder of the school year, please remind your child to work hard, stay focused, be respectful, and ask for help when they need it! We want to ensure we are empowering them to reach their full potential!

Don’t forget…if you have any safety concerns at any time, you can use our Stay Safe, Speak Up portal found on our website or in the app. This is monitored 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

It’s another eventful week here at Ridgedale! Ridgedale Youth Baseball and Softball sign-ups are scheduled for today, February 4, and Tuesday, February 13 from 6-7:30pm in the elementary cafeteria. Any questions, please reach out to Brad Pottkotter 419-305-1435.  Weblink for additional info: https://sites.google.com/view/....
