“When students feel loved and welcomed and included, everything improves.”
School Counselor Erin Rettig on why they created the “House” system at Ridge Elementary. The planning started in June and the big reveal took place in October. The Horace Mann Companies completed funding the DonorChose project “5 House, 1 School Family” at Ridge. A school parent designed the logos for each “House” and the t-shirts were printed by Disco Sports and distributed to all students and staff members. The goal is to engage students and foster a sense of belonging.
