Weds morning was a campus cleanup day.  The staff and kids worked together on this project picking up trash around the outside, cleaning windows, and cleaning the schools.  Afterwards we had a delicious lunch of barbequed steak and potatoes with the works. Some of the values that we hope our students will gain while they are here is that of giving service and taking pride in their surroundings.

West Ridge Academy Cross Country Team

Boys’ Cross Country ran its second race Sat at Sugarhouse Park at the Highland High School Invitational.  Our boys’ 1A team competed against 400 other runners in their races from 1A-5A schools.  (Between all of the races and runners, there were 2700 kids running at the invitational).  The boys ran a great race with 2 boys finishing in the 18 minute range, 1 in the 19 minute range, and 2 in the 20 minute range.  Coach Bruce is hopeful that this team of runners is state bound.  C Country 2 C Country 3 cross country 1 Cross country 4
