Calling All Students!!

 Do you enjoy TV and movies? How about music, making jokes, or socializing? Are you interested in technology, makeup, hair, fashion, or building things? Are you artistic? If any or all of those things describe you, there is a perfect place for you at Riverside Junior/Senior High School…drumroll please…drama club! 

 

There is something for everyone in drama club. We need people with all kinds of diverse skills and talents. If you are at all curious about what goes on behind the scenes, we want you! If you are someone who feels like no other club or sport is just perfect for you, drama is the place to be. Being in drama club does not mean you have to get up on stage, there are many aspects of theatre that most people never consider. Please stop by room 107 and talk to Ms. Stensland if you are interested. You will be glad you did. There are dozens of ways to get involved on stage as well as behind the scenes.

 

Once we have an idea of the number of students who are interested, we will schedule a meeting to decide what show we would like to put on this fall. Don’t delay, we need to get started ASAP!

Pirate Pursuits Mentoring Progam

 “We are looking for volunteers for our new “Pirate Pursuits” mentoring program at Riverside High School.  The goal of the program is to provide support and assistance to students in their pursuit of post-high school education or training (college, trade school, apprenticeship, etc.).  Volunteers will provide one-on-one mentoring to students as they plan for what lies ahead after high school graduation.  This will include career exploration, college or training options available, the application process, scholarships, and financial aid (FAFSA).  Training will be provided for volunteers”.

 

During our Open House on September 9th from 3:30-7:30 a sign-up sheet will be available.  If you are unable to attend please contact Mr. Hammond or Mr. Royer for additional information:

iPads in Science - Riverside teachers make classroom science relevant to teens with iPads

Teachers at Riverside Jr.-Sr. High School know that holding a teenager’s attention in class can sometimes be a challenge, especially in today’s fast-paced, technology-centric world. That’s why science teachers have made an effort this year to show students how science can be relevant in their own lives, using activities and labs such as popcorn popping and building balloon and water bottle rockets to keep students engaged and excited.
