    Faculty Maroon Award

    Congratulations to Mr. Daimian Smith and Mrs.

    Eileen D'Elia for being selected for our first ever

    Faculty Maroon Award! For this award, faculty

    members nominate colleagues who inspire others

    and help make RHS a better place every single

    day.

    Ridgewood-Beaucamps French Exchange

    Seventeen French students were hosted by Ridge-

    wood families in October. They attended classes at

    RHS, shadowing their host students throughout the

    day, and spent their evenings and weekends with

    their American families. They were completely im-

    mersed in our school and life in America.

    During their stay, the French students attended a

    welcome reception, a home football game, and

    spent two full days discovering NYC, among other

    individual family activities. They explored the Ellis

    Island National Museum of Immigration, the Statue

    of Liberty, the Brooklyn Bridge, the 911 Memorial,

    and toured the United Nations.

    This is the second exchange organized by RHS

    French teachers Laura Polk and Helene Palumbo. It

    gives students the opportunity to learn and em-

    brace the different cultural aspects of both coun-

    tries.

    During April Break 2020, RHS students will go to

    Lille, France, for a 10 day immersion experience

    with their French friends.

    QUOTE TO REMEMBER...

    “Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn.” –

    Benjamin Franklin

    RHS Senior Edward O'Keefe presented his summer

    research recently at the International Symposium

    on Clusters and Nanomaterials (Energy and Medi-

    cine) in Virginia.

    Interdisciplinary Project

    Ashley Pollitt and Luke Dolby's 9th grade English classes collaborated with

    Linda Chamesian and Alex Escobar’s 11th grade USII classes. After reading Of

    Mice and Men, the 9th grade teams presented research on how gender, race,

    age, and/or ability may prevent someone from achieving the American

    Dream; subsequently, the 11th grade teams drafted progress and reform initi-

    atives to confront and raise awareness of different forms of discrimination.

    Need Help with Homework?

    RHS National Honor Society students offer free

    tutoring every Monday—Thursday from 3:15PM-

    4:15PM in the Learning Commons.

    Congratulations to the RHS Girls and Boys cross country teams. Both teams

    Halloween Happenings @ RHS

    November 15, 2019~ Page 3

    Interactive Design

    Mr. Wohner's Interactive Design students built monster skeletons during Hal-

    loween. They worked in 2 teams to build the models using digital modeling

    tools and 3D scanners to design the parts. Using the 3D printers in the Mak-

    erspace they printed the

    parts and had a good time

    performing some surgery

    to get the parts to fit

    and move as their time

    expired.

    RHS DECA

    RHS DECA held a Teal Pumpkin Painting event to spread awareness about food

    allergies and providing an allergen friendly option for trick or treaters.

    RHS teachers get into the Halloween spirit...RHS

    Music teachers Ms. Geronimo, Mr. Haas, Mr.

    Luckenbill and Mr. Fink, RHS Dance teacher Ms.
