RIA Well Represented at Regional Heritage Fair

Random Island Academy had a great showing at the regional Heritage Fair in Trinity last Thursday.  Students competed against 70 other projects from around the district.  Out of those 70 projects we had two award winners from RIA:

Sabrina Martin won an award for most outstanding interview.

Keisha Parrott won an award for excellent display of a theme.

We would like to congratulate all students who participated and represented our school so well.  Great work everyone!!!  And, a BIG thank you to Mr. Howse, your time and efforts are greatly appreciated!!

Big Changes in the Gymnasium!

It was such a pleasure to walk in the gym last week and see over thirty children lined up for their turn on the new rock wall.  It is a physical activity that is new to RIA and it has the students from Kindergarten right on up through to the high school very excited.  We would very much like to thank Mr. Baker for all his time and hard work that was put into this initiative.  We were quite pleased when Mr. Baker got us a grant for a new archery net but it seems that it was only the tip of the iceberg!  WELL DONE!!!

This past Saturday we also had a new score clock installed in the gym.  Our old clock (and it was old) needed to be replaced as it was not working properly anymore.  the old clock has served us well but we are excited to get the new wireless score clock as it will be much more user friendly and allow us to set up score tables anywhere in the gym (no longer blocking the main door way hopefully).   This was a welcome change for our gym and it turned a lot of heads Monday morning!
