It's been a busy summer at Ridgely Elementary! What's new?

  • Our building got a much needed new roof.
  • We are excited to welcome Deputy First Class Ashly Collison to RES. Deputy Collison will be our new School Resource Office (SRO).
  • Mrs. Sloan Stafford will be our new attendance secretary. Mrs. Stafford is filling Mrs. Kellner's position. Mrs. Kellner retired at the end of the school year, and we wish her the very best.
  • During the upcoming school year, grades 3, 4, and 5 students will continue to have one teacher for English Language Arts (Reading) and a second teacher (Partner Teacher) for Math, Science and Social Studies. Grades 1 and 2 students will return to having one teacher for the entire day. This teacher will teach the students all content areas; English Language Arts, Math, Science, and Social Studies. Kindergarten and Pre-kindergarten students will continue to have the same teacher for the entire day.
  • Families with students in grades K-5 will receive teacher assignments before the first day of school. Pre-kindergarten student parents will receive a phone call from their child's teacher at the end of August to introduce themselves and discuss the upcoming year.
