I am SO PROUD of all of the music students at River Ridge! They showed up to play and sing at both Solo and Ensemble and Organizational Contest. From their combined total of points, they held onto 2nd place in the IHSA Music Sweepstakes Tournament for Class D! The last time the music department placed was in 2018 and before that 1986! WAY TO GO WILDCATS!!!

As you may know, we are experiencing an outbreak of measles in Illinois that includes adults and children. The current outbreak is concentrated in northeast Illinois with cases in Cook, Will and Lake Counties. These cases have subsequently resulted in multiple exposures in schools in the affected areas. Measles is highly contagious especially in school-aged children. To prevent the spread of infection, it is critical that you ensure that students have the age-appropriate number of doses of measles, mumps, rubella (MMR) vaccine, or other evidence of immunity to measles. Please contact Nurse Lisa if you have any questions.

On Monday, our sophomores embarked on a visit to Loras College in Dubuque! Students enjoyed a campus tour, hearing from professors and admissions about the college and popular majors, and a buffet lunch in their dining hall. Could there be a future Duhawk among the Class of 2026? 🎓

April showers bring May Flowers! The horticulture class has been spending a lot of time in the greenhouse the past two weeks. They have been transplanting and caring for all of the vegetables they started from seed as well as the flowers that were planted in February. We are trying a few new varieties this year; yellow begonia, celosia, silver falls fillers and some succulents!

Elementary enjoyed our eclipse mania today. It started off with a "radio show" over the PA system complete with corny space jokes and rim shots by Mr. Dickman. We moved outside to observe the moon blocking out the sun at different times of the afternoon and we noticed that the temperature got cooler when the sun was covered. The birds in the trees around the school squawked louder than usual- we thought they were confused by the darkness. Students looked for Venus just to the left of the sun. Did you know that Venus will never have an eclipse because it doesn't have any moons at all? Jupiter has 67 moons though, so it probably has lots of eclipses. Thank you to all of our teachers and students for making this eclipse such a fun learning experience!

3rd-5th graders had a special assembly today with Suzi Taylor, a River Ridge alum who now teaches at Montana State University. Suzi presented information about the Nationwide Eclipse Ballooning Project where college and high school students are deployed across the U.S. with equipment that will videotape and collect data about Monday's eclipse. Our students learned about the science behind the eclipse and how engineers have designed the balloons and equipment to collect data so we can learn even more. Please ask your student about what they learned today and tune in on Monday, April 8 to to view the eclipse video from the balloons. Much thanks to Suzi Taylor and her mom, Patsy Geiger, for providing this awesome opportunity for our students.
