SCHOOL NEWS
RIDGE VIEW COMMUNITY SCHOOL

An open house was held on Thursday, April 4th at Ridge View Community School to celebrate their One School One Book Project. Students in grades  5 through 8 all read “A Long Walk To Water” by Linda Sue Park, a true story about Salva Dut who was forced from South Sudan during the Sudanese War and his long journey that brought him to America as one of the "Lost Boys". As an adult Salva went  back to his country and started building wells for the people there to help solve the water crisis that many of the people face. Students decorated the hallways with scenes from the book, studied water quality, and even built a well.
