Principal Laurinda PetersenIt is with great pride that I welcome you to Spring Ridge Elementary. Spring Ridge Elementary is an elementary school in the Elkhorn Public Schools district with approximately 540 students in kindergarten through fifth grade.

Our skilled and committed teaching and support faculty set high expectations for themselves and our students. Our goal is to create a stimulating and productive learning community in which children can build on their strengths to reach their highest potential. In addition, the students of Spring Ridge Elementary are active participants in their education by accepting the responsibilities and challenges presented to them every day to reach new levels of success.

Spring Ridge Elementary is fortunate to have an energetic PTO, numerous parent and community volunteers, and several business partners that are all engaged in efforts to provide a rewarding educational experience for our students. High parent and community involvement is a key ingredient to a successful school experience!

High student expectations, strong student leadership, and a commitment to excellence are the cornerstones of the Spring Ridge Elementary Community. The staff and I look forward to working with our Spring Ridge families and friends. Please stop by to visit our school community or e-mail me at lpetersen@epsne.org.
