I am very excited for the upcoming school year at Ridgeview Central School. As the new Principal of RCS I feel blessed to enter a school year with such an amazing group of students and staff. This year RCS will see some changes, with a new principal and a few new faces to the teaching staff.
This year we get to welcome to the teaching staff Miss Alexandra Skinner to grade 7, Mrs. Krista White to grade 4, and Mr. Brent Thompson to grade 7. We also have some changes with Mr.Travis Hardy as the new Physical Education teacher, Mrs. Eran Cardinal moving into the grade 6 role, and Ms. Kristy Darrigan taking on a teaching role in grade 5. We also have Ms. Mandy Washkevich as an educational assistant and Mrs. Melanie Buhler as our new secretary!
Ridgeview has many exciting opportunities to offer our students. The staff at RCS strive to offer the highest quality of education to our students, while also helping to develop them into responsible citizens. At RCS we offer a number of unique programs that focus on positive character development, including Care in Action, where students volunteer their time to pay forward acts of kindness, an active Student Representative Council that serves as the voice of the student body and engages in activities such as school spirit promotion, student resource purchasing, leading of assemblies, and facilitation of focus groups. Within our grade 7 classes we have Positive Leaders where students work towards completing volunteer hours and becoming leaders throughout the building. Within classrooms teacher promote daily engagement and quality instruction.
I am truly looking forward to a great year with students, staff, parents, and the community. At Ridgeview we welcome all parents/guardians and encourage volunteer involvement wherever possible. Caring and involved parents/guardians are a critical part of a successful school.
