Congratulations to the Kindergarten students for winning the Primary School Spirit Competition! The class enjoyed a cookie cake as their reward.


Thank you to the 30 students who participated in the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital Math-A-Thon.  These 30 students collected $2,427.50 in donations for St. Jude Hospital. Our donation this year brings Ridgewood’s total donation, over our 15 years participating, to $36,158.


Entrance exams for new students entering Ridgewood for the 2018-19 school year will be administered on Saturday, January 20, 2018. Applications can be obtained by calling the school office at 835-2545.

Pre-kindergarten enrollment is on a first come first served basis, and requires an application and a student interview.  Kindergarten entrance tests are administered individually and are scheduled at the time of application.   The entrance requirement for pre-kindergarten is that the child is 4 years old by October 15, and kindergarten students must be 5 years old by October 15.


Thank you so much to the wonderful helpers and families who supported the Scholastic Book Fair.   From kids to teachers to parents to grandparents and special friends, everyone had a great time.


Thanks to all parents and alumni who have already made their contribution to the Annual Giving Campaign.  Your support makes possible a wide variety of projects.  If you have not yet contributed, it is not too late.  Contributions are accepted throughout the year, but must be dated by December 31, 2017 for a 2017 tax credit.  If you need a contribution envelope, please call the school office at 835-2545 to have one sent to you.


December 19 is the last day of school before the Christmas Holidays.  School will be closed from December 20 through January 2.  School resumes on Wednesday, January 3, 2018. The Primary School Faculty wishes everyone a happy and safe holiday season.
