MAP Assessments
MAP testing will begin 4/7 and run through 5/1. Each day is different in regard to what grade and what classes are testing. Please see the schedule below. Our assessments are conducted online this year, please make every effort to ensure your son or daughter is in attendance during those assessment days. Our MAP Theme this year is Cash Cab!

Teacher Web Pages – Our staff have been working diligently to get our teacher web pages up and running for parents and students! We had a transition from the old system when we moved to Tyler last year, so now we have ventured into our web pages for all of you to access from home! To access this information please visit our Ridgewood Web Page http://ridgewoodms.fox.k12.mo.us/, click on Staff, then the team your child is on, click on the teacher, this will take you to his/her web page or link to the web page where you can find weekly homework assignments and other important information from that class!

 

Homework/Tutoring/Parent Meetings – Ridgewood prides ourselves on Academic & Character Excellence, again at any time you have concerns please contact your child’s teacher via email or contact the office to speak with myself or Mrs. Stokes (counselor). We have held several parent-team meetings the past few weeks, we are here to help and work together as a TEAM (teachers, counselor, principals, parents, students). Homework will be nightly/daily, our students are working with a Rigorous Curriculum and our teachers are working diligently to ensure your child is prepared for the upcoming state assessments in the spring and most of all, for High School and College!

 

Homework, “As a parent what do I do here?” – Not only checking on Tyler for your child’s academic progress, check the teacher webpages for homework. Let your child know that YOU know what is going on in his/her class for the school week. Designate a “homework time” & “homework place” at home to do work each evening after school. Somewhere without distractions is important along with taking away the cell phone for a bit so he/she can truly focus on school work. As a parent myself, I know how much time we are spending working on homework, and the “new” way of math and writing from the ways we were taught – it can be frustrating as a parent. On that note please do not hesitate to email your child’s teacher if you just cannot figure out how to help your child – “it’s OK!” This way the teacher has a heads up to meet with your child privately to go over homework that was not understood. Again we are all a TEAM when it comes to your child’s learning!

WATCH D.O.G.S COMING SOON TO RIDGEWOOD MIDDLE! 

Watch D.O.G.S (Dads of Great Students) is an innovative program being used by schools across America which helps them to be positively impacted by the committed involvement of fathers and father-figures in their student’s life. Our goal is to have you spend a full day or part of a day this year and next (if a current seventh grade parent at Ridgewood or a sixth grade parent coming to Ridgewood next year) to be a positive role model and to provide an extra set of eyes and ears.

Dad’s, granddads, uncles, step-dads and adult brothers…….. this is your chance to make a difference with our school and with your child and others. Make a difference with our school and our school district. We look forward to your relationship with our school team. Thank you for considering this opportunity. We look forward to you joining us in this journey! 

Thank you Terrance Mix for being the first watchdog at our school and for helping us throughout the day!  We appreciate your help and for volunteering!

Sincerely, 

Jaime Cavato, Principal                      William Steis, Assistant Principal

Attendance is Top Priority at Ridgewood! We have set a 97% attendance goal for our school this year, please ensure your child is at school each day! Our Ridgewood Attendance Committee is dedicated towards our weekly attendance incentives - thank you to our committee and thank you students & parents for ensuring your child is attending school daily!  We are meeting with students and parents of students who are falling below 90% attendance at this point, this is a new MSIP 5 requirement, that your child is in school 90% of the year, so essentially not missing any more than 7 days a semester. Please contact the office with any concerns or questions regarding attendance.

PAWS time (Powerful Academic Work Sessions) Tuesday's & Thursday's during Advisory students may work with a teacher for in-school tutoring, test make-ups, re-teaching, etc. If your child is struggling in a class, please check his/her tracker to ensure he/she is going to that class/teacher during PAWS for extra help.

RTI - RESPONSE TO INTERVENTION ... Each Tuesday & Thursday we have tutoring in Math and Language Arts for students who are on the bubble in regard to movement of levels on the MAP test! Groups have been up and running the past several weeks!
