Keller Williams-Day of Service

The pictures are of the Pierson Group, Keller Williams Realty’s “Red Day” of service. All their offices across the U.S. and internationally performed volunteer service  on Thursday, May 14th. The Pierson Group pulled weeds on our warning track and spread some clay along with red dirt around the infield. They also pulled weeds and laid wheelbarrows and shovels full of new sand in the volleyball pit. Thanks to our new friends and heroes from Keller Williams!

This Friday, April 24 from 8am to 12pm, we will be engaged in a day of service to help beautify our campus. Joining us this day will be 60 employees from the Larry Miller Group. Their new CEO will also be working alongside us. Please come prepared to have a fun and rewarding experience working with others and our students. Students and staff will meet in their respective cafeterias where they will be given their service assignments. We have identified the following projects as our areas of focus for this service day:

  1. Main Entry
  2. Boy’s Admin Entry
  3. Campus Quad Tree Mulching
  4. Baseball Field
  5. Boy’s School Hallway
  6. Boy’s Kitchen & Pantry

We will provide all the necessary tools and supplies for these projects. Please come with the appropriate dress attire – weather will be cooler with chance of precipitation.

A BBQ lunch of hotdogs and hamburgers will be provided.

West Ridge Academy Debate Team Results

A special thanks to all of those that have supported our team this year.  It has been a constant battle for us with plenty of difficulties and challenges, but we worked hard and have grown a lot.

(Some of the girls on the team along with Mr Porter)

We took only 5 people to state with us to compete.  We were one of the smallest teams down there.  To make things even more fun, the other schools told their judges to use a different paradigm for grading than anything we were used to.  Despite these challenges, we managed to survive.  We took 5th place in state out of 12 schools and had Kara, Sara P., and Becca place 3rd, 4th, and 6th in Congress, respectively. Also this year we finished 1st in our region!

Our team worked very hard and gave it their all in this tournament and I couldn’t be prouder of them.  Make sure you congratulate them in the hall when you see them.  It was a great experience, especially for the inaugural year of a team.  We set the bar really high this year.  It will be interesting to see what next year brings.
