Weekly  Update

Good afternoon, Rocket families!

This is Erika Bower, Superintendent of Ridgedale Local Schools, where our mission is to empower students to reach their full potential while focusing on learning, safety, partnerships with our community, and fiscal responsibility. We are at the final countdown for the 2022-23 school year! It has been a fantastic year! As we move into the summer schedule, I will do one calls as needed versus every week. As we get closer to the 2023-24 school year starting, I will move back to weekly calls. Go ahead and mark your calendars for the first day of school, which is Tuesday, August 22nd. Open House is scheduled for Monday, August 21st, from 4-6pm. You can find the new school calendar on our website.

Congratulations to our seniors who are graduating TODAY at 2pm in the high school gym! We are so proud of them and cannot wait to see what the future holds for each student!
