We are in the midst of a sneaker/shoe drive to raise money for Autism Speaks.  GotSneakers is providing us a way to raise money without actually collecting money !  And that is just the half of it!  GotSneakers will take the sneakers that are in good shape and send them to countries where people don't have any shoes!  The rest will be recycled and kept OUT of the land fills!!!   It is a WIN WIN !!  Please remember us during spring cleaning!!!




PARCC Testing begins next week on Monday for 7th and 8th Grade Students!

Try to get plenty of REST!  

Be sure to have a good breakfast!

Bring your BEST attitude!





Welcome to Ms. Howgate's Homepage! 


This is my eigth year teaching at Ridgway Middle School.  I have been in Edgewater Park School District since September 2001.  Each year at Ridgway has been a new adventure!  This coming year I am co-teaching 7th and 8th grade once again!  I am excited to be working with Mrs. Iwanicki in 8th grade Math, Mrs. Tecce in 8th grade Language Arts and Mrs. Collins in 7th  grade Math!  



CONTACT INFORMATION:  Because I am moving from room to room the best way to contact me is through email. I check my email every day.
