Welcome to the Ridge Wood PTA 

Ridge Wood Elementary is more than just a school. It’s an amazing community built by dedicated and generous parents, teachers, staff and administrators. Volunteer efforts like the Ridge Wood PTA are a big part of the energy, commitment and cooperation that make our school simply outstanding.



We hold monthly meetings throughout the school year Center. At these meetings, the District Superintendent and/or members of the District administration, our Ridge Wood Principal, members of the Northville Board of Education, PTA committee chairs and parents discuss information and initiatives that are important to our school community. We encourage you to attend these meetings to share your thoughts and ideas. 



Not only does the Ridge Wood PTA help build relationships between the parent community and school administrators, but our committees also support a number of initiatives. Our priorities include:


  • Educational Enrichment through student assemblies, grants for classroom materials, and media center book and supply donations.
  • Community Building through initiatives such as Family Math/Science Night, Breakfast with a Buddy and Rocket Rumba.
  • Administrative and Building Support such as the production of the Student Directory and yearbook, Teacher’s Appreciation Week and maintaining lost and found collections.


Throughout the school year, you can keep current with all the PTA happenings through communication that comes home with your child and through the district’s ListServ e-mail. Visit the district website to subscribe. 


Our PTA makes great things happen at Ridge Wood. There are wonderful opportunities to volunteer your time, a little or a lot.  Through your involvement, you’ll cultivate new relationships with parents you’ll be spending time with during your child’s remaining school years.  The time spent volunteering, enhances your family’s school experience, makes memories and will be immeasurable in the future.


We encourage you to reach out to any member of the PTA or the Ridge Wood staff to see how you can make a difference in your child’s education.  We look forward to working with you!
