Message from the Principal


Welcome to Ridgewood! My name is Mary Peterson and on behalf of the Ridgewood family I am excited to welcome each and every one of you to our school. I could not be more thrilled to be part of a school that strives daily to live out our mission of working collaboratively to provide a rigorous, standards-based, students-centered learning environment for all. We are a staff that is committed to meeting the needs of all students. In addition, we are focused on building positive relationships and developing the skills of being respectful, responsible and safe. We look forward to working with you, our parents and members of the community to provide a high-quality education for all children. We appreciate your partnership because together we do better.  If we can be of assistance or you need support, please do not hesitate to reach out. I can be reached at (309) 755-1585 or [email protected].
