    Dear parents, students, and members of our community,

    I hope you all had a restful and relaxing holiday break, full of friends, family, and leisure. As our students return from the break and we eagerly embrace 2022, we are once again faced with unique challenges. We will remain resolute in our commitment to deliver the finest education that our community has come to expect as we work collectively to see our students realize their fullest potential.

    We will continue to maintain our focus on the health and safety of our students and staff and will continue to support the social and emotional needs of all our students. As always, the Park Ridge Board of Education strives to provide the best possible learning environment to ensure that young minds are continuing to be challenged. We are dedicated to working with our students and their families to provide a rewarding educational experience and I am confident in the belief that a strong parent-school relationship is imperative to the overall success of our children’s growth and development.

    Sustaining a high-quality school system safeguards the collective investment in our community. Essential preparation today will ensure that our children obtain the best possible education for tomorrow and that our schools continue to be the building blocks of our community. Park Ridge is most fortunate to be supported by an excellent faculty, staff, and administration, including our technology and building and grounds departments.

    Finally, let me say that it is an honor to serve on the Board of Education with a group of devoted trustees who put education first and foremost. On behalf of the Park Ridge Board of Education, I want to thank everyone for your continued support and encouragement and wish you a happy, healthy, and prosperous new year.

    Warmest regards,

    Dave Bradler

    President, Park Ridge Board of Education
