Principal's Welcome

 
Ridge Wood Rockets Learn and Lead Together!
Dear Ridge Wood Families,
 
On behalf of the staff at Ridge Wood Elementary School, we welcome you to a wonderful year of learning and growing in both academics, and leadership.  We are looking forward to making your child's experience challenging, engaging, memorable, and meaningful.
 
Ridge Wood Elementary is a The Leader in Me school, as are all of our elementary schools  in the Northville Public School district. The Leader in Me is a school-wide model that emphasizes student empowerment.  We help children understand how powerful they are as leaders.  As a District, we are extremely proud of our efforts to raise the next generation of leaders.  Through The Leader in Me process, we teach the 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, engage students in goal setting, and work together for student success.
 
The Ridge Wood staff is a talented, hardworking, and loving group of educators.  We are committed to ensuring ALL students receive a strong academic foundation.  We look forward to working together; staff, students, parents and the community, to continue the fine tradition of excellence established at Ridge Wood.  We will continue to focus on developing leadership skills through The Leader in Me.  In addition, we will foster a safe, positive, and nurturing environment for children, make data driven decisions, and maintain the highest expectations for our students and ourselves.
 
It is my honor and privilege to be the principal of Ridge Wood Elementary School, where our mission is 'Ridge Wood Rockets Learn and Lead Together!'  It is going to be a fantastic year!
 
Warmly,
Heather Bauer
Principal
