Due to weather conditions today (3/25), Rockridge Junior High will not be traveling to the Solo and Ensemble Contest at Monmouth-Roseville.
The Rockridge Academic Achievement Awards will once again honor the top students in each class this spring at our Awards Night on May 10th. We will also recognize the top seniors in each of the departmental areas. I am extremely proud of the outstanding students here at Rockridge High School. These students have made a tremendous effort to achieve these top honors. Recognition of this academic achievement helps reinforce the message that educational excellence is valued by our community. We rely solely on the generous donors from the Rockridge Community to help us make this worthy event possible. The Rockridge Community donated over $21,000.00 last year to fund the 2022 awards. Now, more than ever, we need the support of our community to ensure the 2023 awards are fully funded. Please consider making a tax-deductible donation to the 2023 Rockridge Academic Achievement Awards. Be assured that 100% of the donations received will stay here at Rockridge to finance the Academic Achievement Awards Program, including the award plaques and the departmental award scholarships. I sincerely appreciate the time you are taking out of your busy schedule to contribute to this worthwhile program. Do not hesitate to contact me via phone (309-793-8020) or email (email@example.com) if you have questions about the 2023 Rockridge Academic Achievement Awards. Thank you so much for your support!
