Year-End Awards

At the end of each year, we celebrate the successes and achievements of many of our Ridgetop students by holding an awards assembly. The emphasis is on honoring freshman students through a variety of awards. Seventh and eighth grade Students-of-the-Year are also recognized. Parents are invited to attend this assembly and celebrate the positive impact students have made to Ridgetop's community of learners.
