With that being said, we have plans to make and would love for you to be a part of it. Booster club will have its first meeting of the upcoming school year on July 8th at 6:00 pm in the activities building. Please come, join the fun and share your ideas. We are looking forward to another successful year as Riverdale Academy will celebrate its 50th year of providing a quality education.”

Thanks to Marla Sparks for sending the stories of her two children who are doing great things in rodeo. We love to brag on our kids who do marvelous things, and The Journal loves to publish those stories. So send them with lots of pictures. Hold the phone sideways for best results.
