  1. The Beginning of the End

    [ By on April 10, 2014 ]

    It's crazy to think that we only have a month and a half left of school! Ever since we came back from break, it has really began to sink in that this truly is the beginning of the end. While don't get me wrong, I'm incredibly excited for the summer and to graduate high school, it is also a bittersweet experience. Whenever Ms. Moore, our dean, mentions anything about graduation and end of the year festivities, I find myself getting a bit sentimental. High school has literally flown by; to be honest, I'm still sort of in shock that I am not going to be attending Riverdale next year. Yesterday, at a track meet, it hit me that this would be ...

  2. Photo Field Trip

    [ By on May 08, 2013 ]

    Yesterday, my photo class decided to take a trip during class. We left campus by foot and walked around for 50 minutes taking pictures in Riverdale. It was interesting to explore the neighborhood around our school because very often I come to school and remain on campus all day and then leave to go home. I like being able to walk around and explore. A couple of us even interacted with neighbors to the school who live across the street.  The area we were walking around was very interesting architecturally as well.  It was a fun experience that gave me ideas for my final project in photography.

  4. Too School For Cool

    [ By on October 03, 2012 ]

    Here we are again. Riverdale. A community that somehow mitigates the classic fears of school. This is my junior year, infamously difficult, but my amiable peers and helpful teachers have shown me how to go through it without having too many nervous breakdowns. I'm doing XC for the second year in a row and as my counterpart Travis Brady mentioned in an earlier post, it is no walk in the park. No, rather it is a fast-paced run in a long, hilly park. Furthermore, he failed to mention my successful triumph over him by a mere one tenth of a second. On an academic note, I am taking Math, Latin, Chemistry, and Constructing America. Constructing America is a cool class ...

  5. Bye Russell…

    [ By on March 13, 2012 ]

    For as long as I can remember my brother and I have always gone to Riverdale. We both started in kindergarten with Ms. Mahoney. He is currently a senior and I am a sophomore. Next year, he is going to Cornell University in Ithaca. I know I will miss seeing him in the hallways at school and spending time at home. It will be odd to be an only child and home and not have my brother there. I will definitely go up to visit him and I hope he will come back to visit often! Russell will have a great time and I wish him all the best!
