"Why are we the Ridgefield Spudders?" I've heard people say. Did we just turn into potatoes one day? There's more to the story About the roots of our school Starting with children, just like me and you It's all about teamwork, hard work, and play, About the importance of lifting up one another Each and every day.
A spudder is more than a potato with a face. He's a part of us, our shared history, and our way. Homegrown Heroes: How We Became the Ridgefield Spudders tells the origin story of the Ridgefield School District and its iconic mascot. From humble beginnings in a lush corner of Washington state, the people of Ridgefield worked together to help build the first schools and turn a silly nickname into a symbol of mutual respect. Within this tale, there is a message to children everywhere: we are stronger when we lift each other up. Read it, share it, and celebrate it.
