blanket2Many RGS students have been asking this very question and taking action.  A few Riverdale middle schoolers have teamed up with other teens in the area for a spontaneous blanket drive to benefit those in need during this cold winter.

Your donations of new and gently used blankets will be donated to the Clackamas Service Center.  Please drop blankets off in labeled bins in the foyer by February 3rd.  

Additionally, Ms. Barron’s 2nd grade class decided to make care packages for the homeless in lieu of their holiday party.  Each student assembled and took home five complete kits to pass out to shelters or individuals. The students made great connections to Martin Luther King Jr., delving into how our kind actions make positive ripples in our community.

Great work!
