Clubs at the Ridge!

Click here to see the current clubs at RMS.

Joining a club is an exciting way to get involved and meet new people! Don't see a club that interests you? Reach out to Ms. Dru about starting a new club or fill out this form.

You can form a club for almost anything. All you need is 2-3 students and an RMS staff person to get started. Think of clubs that serve a good cause such as community service, school enrichment (making our school better), academic support, hobbies, physical fitness, and, how about having FUN! If you need help on an idea, email with your counselor or with Ms. Dru, our ASB coordinator, about  your thoughts. We will help you shape that idea for a club.

Register for sports online on our Athletic Registration page and look out for these dates for our next available sporting season:
