October Students of the Month are Makayla Kindred and Annah Lopshire.
Makayla Kindred tied for 1st in HOIC match (lost in a playoff), placed 2nd in the GCMS Regional, placed 7th in the Rochester Sectional, and placed 28th in the Girls IHSA State golf tournament.
Annah Lopshire went above and beyond in her contributions to this Fall's play. As quoted by Mr. Wyant, "She was just an "extra" for the play, but she came to every single practice anyway and always volunteered to read parts for people who weren't there. She also did a lot with stage crew stuff, again, which she didn't have to do. She really went above and beyond even though she didn't really get the appreciation she deserved from her fellow cast members for doing all that extra work."
The September Students of the Month are Lauren McLeod and Caleb Hays.
Lauren was this year's homecoming queen. Lauren is involved in student council, was a member of the volleyball team, and is the senior class president.
Caleb was a member of this year's homecoming court and was also a captain on the football team. Caleb is also involved with student council, a member of the basketball team, and the national honor society.
Homecoming week is in full swing here at Ridgeview. The class projects are up and representing monuments around the world. Everybody looks like they just rolled out of bed as today's theme is "I woke up like this". Tuesday theme will be "Around the World". Looking forward to all the "Superhero's" on Wednesday and the Class Color Wars on Thursday. We will wind things up on Friday with "Spirit Day" before the big game where Ridgeview will face GCMS at 7pm.

Students in Mr. Wyant’s English 2 classes are learning about six different writing purposes this semester. The first writing purpose they are studying is writing to “express and reflect.” Their first weekly writing assignment was to write “six word memoirs” in which they had to write a series of memoirs about their life using exactly six words. Here is a sampling of how our sophomores sum up their lives in six words.
