Author: The Columbian

RIDGEFIELD — The Ridgefield High School administrative team has named Maggie Butler as January Employee of the Month. In addition to Butler’s knowledge of data systems and her support of district schools, she also shows willingness to always help with countless questions.

To sum up the work she does, one teacher recently said, “Maggie is so helpful. She spent 54 minutes on the phone with me yesterday helping me. I just want to go down and buy her a dozen roses.”

Students of the month are: Chloe Keur, pre-kindergarten student at the Early Learning Center; Jaunty Berber, second-grader at South Ridge Elementary School; Emmett Anderson, third-grader at Union Ridge Elementary School; Addison Tingley, sixth-grader at Sunset Ridge Intermediate School; Alina Akimenko, eighth-grader at View Ridge Middle School; William Boyd V, senior at Ridgefield High School; and Bethany Strand, sophomore at Wisdom Ridge Academy.
