ACADEMICS: English PBL Raises Funds for ADA

Mrs. Ashley Walker's 3-4th period English 1 Seminar class participated in a student-led project in which they researched difficult journey's after reading The Odyssey. The students proposed ideas for a class-wide project. One student's research on diabetes led the class to work on organizing a low-sugar bake sale to raise money for the American Diabetes Association (ADA). The class raised $105 by selling homemade chocolate truffles and blueberry muffins, and Mr. John Douglas from the ADA visited the class to receive the donation check. While he visited, he informed them that their donation money would be used to pay for two Columbia children to attend the ADA's week-long summer day camp for children with diabetes. Well done Blazers!

Happy Memorial Day

ACADEMICS: Spanish 4 Students Interview Author

Students from Mrs. Bucheli's Spanish 4 class had the opportunity to interview Dr. Adams, author of A Casa for My Heart and En busca de mi sendero. We want to thank Dr. Catalina Adams for the time she spent with the students, as they wanted to know about the characters in the book. En busca de mi sendero is a book that Dr. Adams dedicated to former Ridge View Spanish students Carlo Milan, Chandler Bailey, Jonathan Guzman, Sara Duenas and Natalia Navarro, as these students were the first to read and critique the book.
