Message from the Principal

I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to Ridge Lawn School.  Ridge Lawn School is a Pre-Kindergarten through fifth grade school where high grades stand for high achievement and promotion is earned. Our mission is to provide a positive learning environment where each child has the opportunity to reach his/her potential.  

As principal of Ridge Lawn School, I am proud to work with our families, students and staff in doing what I consider the most important work there is - educating children.  Together we form a strong team that strives to provide children with the tools that they need to be successful in life.  It is important to me that your child and family feels welcomed, safe and valued here at Ridge Lawn.  If you ever have a question or concern, please do not hesitate to reach out to any of our staff members, including myself.  We want to ensure that we support your child in any way that we can.

Ridge Lawn School needs your assistance to ensure that we can do everything we can to ensure student success and growth.  We encourage you to be a part of your child's school experience in any way that you can.  This can include joining the Chicago Ridge PTA, visiting your child's classroom, chaperoning a field trip, reading a book to a class ... the list goes on and on.  Please reach out to your child's teacher if you are interested in volunteering in the school.  We know that "when schools, families and community groups work together to support learning, children tend to do better in school, stay in school longer, and like school more."  That is the conclusion of an educational report from the Southwest Educational Development Laboratory and as a school, we can see the same exact results when parents are involved in their child's education.

Let's work together to make this the best school year for your child.


Mrs. Fran Setaro
