A message from Bryan Raach, Middle School Principal
I would like to offer a big welcome back to the students and staff at Ridgewood Middle School.  I am excited to be back home and part of the Ridgewood family.  I cannot wait to see the awesome things that we will accomplish this year.  My number one goal for the year is to continue building a school culture that is welcoming, safe, and inclusive for everyone.  We are going to be teaching our students and staff about The R Factor this year.  Simply put it will provide them the tools necessary to understand situations and the importance of controlling their response to events in their lives.    

I believe that is important to be transparent and let our parents and community know the amazing things that are happening at Ridgewood Middle School.  We have created two social media accounts to accomplish that goal.  You can follow Ridgewood Middle School on Facebook and on Twitter @RMSGenerls.  

I value open communication and input from our students and their families.  I will be reaching out to all of our student’s families in the next couple of weeks to introduce myself and remind everyone we are here to help and support your family.
Please plan to join us at open house on August 19th from 2:30-4.  This will be a great time to see your teachers from previous years, meet your teachers for this year, and meet your new Principal.  

I am looking forward to an amazing year working with everyone and as always, Go Generals!
