Welcome to St. Michael Catholic School in Ridgetown!

On behalf of all of the staff, I wish to extend a warm welcome to another exciting year at the Home of the Cardinals! A very special welcome goes out to our new families at St. Michael.

This year promises to be an amazing year filled with abundant learning, growing in faith and fun. Our commitment is to provide exceptional Catholic Education, which will foster the development of our students’ spiritual, physical, emotional and intellectual talents and abilities.

We are so very blessed to be located in such close proximity to the Church and to work with our Parish and to provide opportunities for our students to attend church regularly.

In order to make this year a successful one, communication between home and school is critical. Look for our school newsletter and calendar the first week of each month. They can also be viewed on the website – just go to and under “Schools” click on “Visit Our Schools.” Then select “St. Michael, Ridgetown” and click on the links at the top of the page to view the school newsletter and calendar. Each classroom teacher will also send out frequent newsletters to update you of important happenings within the classroom.

Effective communication runs both ways; so whenever you have a question, please feel free to contact the school.Drawing of a Cardinal

Our school community is fortunate to be filled with dedicated staff, which includes teachers, educational assistants, early childhood educators, our school secretary, our wonderful custodian and our librarian. Each of us is here to support our students and families in making this year a successful one.

I look forward to a wonderful year!!

Privacy Advisory

Our families and staff enjoy opportunities to share some of their activities with parents and the school community through teams, clubs and special events. Many of these are ‘memory making’ for families and as such, photographs and videos are often taken.

We ask that families exercise their discretion when taking photographs or videos at school events and consider the privacy of other students who may also be present in those pictures. We would appreciate if families not upload images of students other than their own to the Internet (e.g. YouTube or Facebook). Your cooperation with this request is appreciated.
