The Barn Artist Visits Ridgewood
Thank you to Scott Hagan aka The Barn Artist for his work in adding some much needed color to our high school gymnasium. Scott worked two days to ensure the wall painting was completed prior to our home opener in volleyball on August 18th at 11am. I also want to thank the ladies of the Janusian Club for their continued support of all of our programs. Without their generous donation this would not have been possible. We at Ridgewood are always striving to afford our students and athletes the best possible well rounded education. We are always looking at ways to improve these opportunities with an emphasis on school pride and culture.
