Principal's Message

  • Mr. Thomas (Rick) Redshaw

    Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year at Eagle Ridge Elementary School where our theme is “Choose Kind”. We, as always, will continue to focus upon high academic expectations for all, the Character Traits of cooperation, responsibility, citizenship, kindness, respect, honesty, self-control, and tolerance, AND as Eagles we will continue to S.O.A.R. – Self-Control, On Task, Act Responsibly, and Respect. Speaking of high academic expectations, Eagle Ridge once again received the grade of an “A” from the State of Florida! Yes . . . we here at Eagle Ridge are educators who are continually learning & growing, which in turn leads to learning & growth within our children.

    As Principal of Eagle Ridge Elementary School, my goal is to provide the students and staff with a safe and secure educational environment, to raise the bar academically for all, foster a love for life-long learning, and to take each and every opportunity to assist all with making the right choices in life, make us better human beings all around.

    Looking forward to working with you all during the 2019-2020 school year. Though it’s cliché, know that my door is ALWAYS open for your thoughts, concerns, and kudos!


    Thomas “Rick” Redshaw
