Back to School

Dear Wolf Ridge Families,

I am excited to begin another school year with you all at Wolf Ridge Education Center!  Throughout last year, I was honored to be able to work alongside the dedicated staff we have at Wolf Ridge and get to know the amazing students, families and community members that make our school successful.  I am looking forward to this new school year, and I am hopeful about the progress we have made and will continue to make together.

The back to school theme this year is “Get in the Game”. I want the entire school community to know they are a part of the team.  I encourage both students and parents to get involved and be active in academics, extracurricular activities and special events throughout the year. I also want to encourage students to practice kindness and include others. What will you do to inspire your fellow teammates? As the saying goes “…it’s how you play the game” that really matters.  The teamwork that we demonstrate throughout the year will be what makes this school year a success.

As a part of the team, please feel free to contact me or your child’s teacher at anytime to discuss ways that we can help your child reach his/her full potential.  I can be reached by phone at 618-585-4831 or by email at  Please mark your calendar with the many events that have been planned to help make the transition back to school a smooth one for you and your child.  I especially want to invite all of our new students to our school and incoming kindergarten students to the informational night on August 12th at 5:30pm.  

Welcome to the team! Go Patriots!

Shonda Ronen, Principal
