In December we were blessed to have six former Ridgeview students return to school to talk to our current students about their experiences in college, the work force, and the military. It was great to hear about all the wonderful things these students have accomplished since graduating from Ridgeview. We hope that listening to their stories will help inspire more of our students to keep striving towards their college and career goals. Thanks to Josh, Paige, Taylor, Arden, Wes, and Adam for taking time out of your busy lives to speak with our students!
Junior high students and staff dressed up as their favorite book characters to promote the Literacy Week! Thursday's event, Pajama Day led into the movie night showing "The Lightning Thief" to fundraise the Caudill Election in February.
Miss Sturm's 8th grade Physical Science class completed the Mannequin Challenge.
On Thursday during the mentoring class period we hosted a “financial speaker series” for all of our junior and senior high students. Students were able to pick from sessions on topics such as: insurance, checking/savings accounts, careers in banking, budgeting your money, and credit score/applying for a loan. We were blessed to have speakers from the People’s State Bank of Colfax, Mid-Illini Credit Union, and Miller Insurance Agency donate their time and expertise to our students. Thank you to all these community members for sharing this important information with us!
