Meet the Principal

Welcome, Rocket Families!

I have so enjoyed my tenure as principal of Ridgeview Elementary School and will be retiring at the end of the 2019-20 school year.  I want to thank each and every one of you for your support of the Ridgeview community. The decision was not an easy one because of my deep passion and commitment to Ridgeview, its students, its families, its staff, and to Bloomington Public Schools. 

I consider myself extremely fortunate to have served as an educator and leader in such a vibrant, supportive community -- a community where education is valued as a top priority by students, parents and teachers alike. I am blessed to have been a colleague to such an extraordinary faculty and staff, and I am humbled by the fact that parents and caretakers have entrusted the foundation of their child’s education to Ridgeview.

Please know that my dedication and commitment will continue, at the highest level, throughout the remainder of this school year. A new Ridgeview principal will be selected to begin the 2020-21 school year. The details of that process will be communicated to staff and families early this spring.

I want to thank each of you for your encouragement, support, and trust over the past 25 years. I look forward to continuing my leadership for the remainder of this school year. I am confident that Ridgeview will continue to flourish in academic excellence and vibrant, deeply connected relationships for years to come.

Principal Steve Abrahamson
