21st Century Community Learning Center Grant
The 21st Century Community Learning Center program provides opportunities for children who come from economically disadvantaged families to receive academic supports. The Ohio Department of Education's Office of Improvement and Innovation administers the 21st Century Community Learning Center (CCLC) grant. This federally funded grant program supports high-quality, out-of-school time learning opportunities and related activities for students who attend eligible schools. Ridgewood Local School District partnered with the Muskingum Valley Education Service Center to apply for 21st Century Learning Center Grant.  Ridgewood High School and Ridgewood Middle School received awarded grants for up to one million dollars over a five year period.  These dollars will be utilized for after-school tutoring and programming that will increase student growth and achievement. 
Ohio Deans Compact Incentive Grant
Ridgewood Local Schools and Muskingum University are entering their 2nd year of the Ohio Deans Compact Incentive Grant.  The $66, 100 dollar grant has been used to provide professional development and support on how to create a Trauma Informed School.  The professional development is centered on research methods to combat adverse childhood hood experiences by building resiliency in students.   Funds have been used for the following:  material/resources such as 10 Steps to Create a Trauma Informed School and Creating a Trauma Sensitive Classroom, staff training, and summer workshop for elementary and middle school guidance counselors. 
A Message from the Transportation Department!
All parents/guardians who want their child to ride the bus to a location other than their place of residence (babysitter’s, grandparent, friends or others) must contact Doug Patterson after September 4 at 740-545-9466 to check availability. 
The Barn Artist Visits Ridgewood
Thank you to Scott Hagan aka The Barn Artist for his work in adding some much needed color to our high school gymnasium. Scott worked two days to ensure the wall painting was completed prior to our home opener in volleyball on August 18th at 11am. I also want to thank the ladies of the Janusian Club for their continued support of all of our programs. Without their generous donation this would not have been possible. We at Ridgewood are always striving to afford our students and athletes the best possible well rounded education. We are always looking at ways to improve these opportunities with an emphasis on school pride and culture.

Congratulations!  Message from Athletic Director, Matt Colvin:  "Ridgewood High School's athletic field was just named a Field of Excellence winner by Pioneer Athletics!  On behalf of the Athletic Department and our athletes, I want to thank some people who have played a pivotal role in us receiving this honor.  First, our maintenance crew.  Thank you for your work painting the field.  These men spend a lot of time making sure everything is just right.  Secondly, I would like to thank Front and Center Turf.  Mike Dover and his crew have been amazing to work with.  Their knowledge and attention to detail is second to none.  Thank you for the work you have done getting our field in the condition it is in. Lastly, I want to thank our grounds and transportation director, Doug Patterson, our superintendent, Mike Masloski, and our Board of Education for listening and being willing to assist in making our facilities some of the best around.  We strive each day to make available to our student athletes the very best so they can be proud and have every opportunity to succeed.  We will be receiving a banner that will be displayed in the stadium.  Thank you and Go Generals!
