  • First Annual Art Show

    Posted by Nikki Mazur at 4/8/2014
    Kudos to you, Mrs. Ventriello and our talented Ridgeway students.  You have all proven yourselves to be wonderful artists.  Tonight's Art Show was a big success.  Thank you to the parents and families who came out to appreciate all the art work.  We are very lucky to have such a fantastic art teacher.  Thanks for all you did to make this first Art Show a fun-filled evening. Also thanks to our friends at the Manchester Branch of the Ocean County Library.  We appreciate your support.  One student asked me which piece was my favorite and I truly had to reply, "All of them!"  The art work will be on display for the remainder of the month. Enjoy.

  • Outdoor Recess

    Posted by Nikki Mazur at 3/27/2014
    Before you know it, our students will be outside enjoying the playground during our recess times.  This is the time to remind the children about safety rules and making good choices. Here are a few ideas that would spark a great conversation about playground procedures:
    • Keep your hands and feet to yourself at all times.
    • Ridgeway School is a positive learning place and we use positive, respectful language.
    • Remember personal space.
    • Use your words to communicate how you feel.
    • Practice being a good listener.
    • The best way to make a friend is to be a friend.
    • If you are uncomfortable with something that a classmate says or does, tell an adult.
    • Be respectful when you are using playground equipment.  Take turns and make sure that you are safe and your friends are safe.
    • If you are traveling without your class, you must have a pass.
    • Lunch aides and lunch duty teachers are the first people to go to for assistance at lunch or during recess.
    • Have fun, but make it safe and enjoyable for everyone.
    • You break it, you fix it!  This includes broken hearts!  Use your words wisely.

    Happy Spring!  Parents, please talk to your children and remind them that safety comes first.
