A Message from Our Principal

Mary Scalise

Dear Families,

Welcome to the 2023–2024 school year! I am excited to start this new year with your children and to continue our work together to provide them with engaging, relevant, and personalized learning experiences. Together, I hope to partner with our community to foster academic, social, and emotional growth for all students, promote wellness, and continue to build an inclusive climate of trust, safety, and respect. Our school community is strong, and I am grateful for the support of our families.

At Ridgebury we are focused on:

  • Academic excellence: We are committed to providing all students with the opportunity to succeed. We will offer a rigorous and challenging curriculum that meets the needs of all learners.
  • Social-emotional learning: We know that students who are emotionally healthy are better learners. We will provide opportunities for students to develop their social-emotional skills through the use of the responsive classroom approach and RULER tools.
  • School climate: We want our school to be a safe and welcoming place where all students feel respected and valued. We will work together to create a positive school climate where everyone feels like they belong.

I look forward to what this year brings! I know that with your support, we can make it a successful one for all of our students.

My best,

Mary Scalise
