    Parents & Park Ridge Community Supporters:


    HAPPY NEW YEAR, 2021-2022

    Welcome Back! A new school year presents opportunities for various beginnings – new classes, new faces, and new learning opportunities. Whether you are new and enrolling for the first time, or currently enrolled, Park Ridge is Ready for You! We are eagerly looking forward to an amazing year with your child(ren) as we resume face-to-face learning for our scholars. Our goal is to ensure that all children are healthy, happy, safe, and ready to learn. The Covid-19 Pandemic has created many challenges for everyone, especially our students. Achievement gaps have grown over the last 15 months, setting our children back and must be closed if we want our students to succeed in tomorrow’s world. With the passion, talent, and skill set of our hardworking teachers and staff, we are prepared and confident in our ability to BUILD SUCCESS STUDENT BY STUDENT. We hope that you are as excited and enthusiastic as we are about the 2021-2022 school year. Before our doors open for the new school year, we want to thank you for your commitment to our students and our school. Communicating with you about your child's success is one of my highest priorities. Please use the "email the principal link" on our web page in order to reach out at any time.  You can also call the school and I will gladly provide my personal cellular number. We look forward to our continued journey into the magnificent world of LEARNING!

    Mr. Balchunas, Principal
