Last Friday, during our PAWS advisory class, all students participated in a lesson on anti-bullying written by members of the Student Government Association. 

During morning announcements each day this week, members of the Student Government Association are addressing the student body with positive messages and action steps to help promote positive culture and prevent bullying at Ridgeview. 

Thank you to our phenomenal PTA and SGA , and thank you for your continued support of Ridgeview.

 Together, we "make a world of difference."
