What's New in Ridgefield Park

4th of July Parade Float
July 4th Float
Happy Fourth of July! This year all three Ridgefield Park Elementary Schools participated together in the traditional town Fourth of July Parade. It was a great way to really kick off the summer season in true RP fashion. After overcoming many challenges this year, the theme of the 2021 float was, “We’re In This Together.” Members from all three PTA’s worked together to make this fun and colorful project come to life. Students and PTA board members from all of the elementary schools rode on their impressive creation while waving to the crowds, blowing bubbles and energetically dancing to great music. A great time was had by all!

RP Summer Academy Planning Underway!
Central Office personnel and the Summer Session Planning Committee have been hard at work making preparations for extended learning during the summer of 2021. Increased funding from the NJDOE coupled with the need to reacclimate many students to an in-person educational environment have combined to make updating the summer program desirable. Partnering with the Meadowlands Environmental Center, the district will be offering a wide variety of hands-on, interactive science activities to supplement instruction for our K-12 students in need of additional math and language arts support. Lots of exciting opportunities have been included.

Read Across America at RP
Tuesday, March 2 is Read across America Day - a day to celebrate and promote the joys of reading. To celebrate virtually, Ridgefield Park Junior/Senior High School Media Specialist, Ms. Quinn, recorded a video reading of an excerpt from a school library book for students to watch and listen to. The theme for the week supports a 2020-21 district wide initiative to promote social justice and to celebrate our diversity. At our elementary schools, a similar theme is being followed during a week long celebration with lots of activities.
