Congratulations to Our Own Grace Gottwalt!
Grace, a Senior gymnast here at Ridgewood, placed 6th in the District Meet. Competition was fierce with 39 schools participating in the Central District. Grace also received All District Team honors and All Ohio Academics honors.  She will now advance to the State competition. Grace’s dedication to gymnastics is apparent.  With no one else at Ridgewood  interested in gymnatics, a team could not be formed. Grace then started working out with the Tri-Valley gymnastic team, but she continues to compete for Ridgewood.  Congratulations Grace! We couldn’t be prouder!

Our School Board on Monday, February 10th, passed a resolution opposing the state of Ohio EdCHOICE Scholarship (Voucher) Program.  This voucher program takes school tax money to pay for private school education.  I (Mike Masloski) plan on providing written and verbal testimony for the committee conference of the General Assembly.  I (Masloski) had the opportunity to voice our displeasure of this voucher program at a press conference at MVESC. This voucher program currently affects Ridgewood Elementary School.  In the press conference, I tell the story of RES.
