Dancing the Night Away

RWA Class of 2017
The RWA Class of 2018 hosted the annual Jr-Sr Prom this past Friday night, April 28th, at The Farm in Ridgeway.  Prior to the Prom, students gathered on the grounds of The Farm for pre-Prom photo sessions with family and friends there to view and participate in the photo shoots. RWA alum Damon Ammons provided the classic pickup truck as a photo prop on the scene.

The juniors selected the theme "Let Your Heart Be Your Compass" as their theme for the dance. In addition to the festive decorations and tasty hors d'oeuvres, there was also a candy bar filled with a variety of sweet treats. DJ Douglas Pauley provided the dance music to get the crowd moving on the dance floor. There was also a photo booth for those who wanted to get a little more "festive" with photos. Sophomores Grier Hensley and Caleigh Caldwell attended as serving girls.

Prom King and Queen - Bryant & Alyssa

As tradition would have it, the juniors and seniors voted for the Cutest Couple - Kimmy Albert and her date, Gavin Burroughs, the Prom King - Bryant Carvalho, and Prom Queen - Alyssa Atkerson. Additionally, the seniors were "introduced" to the crowd as each one danced to one of their favorite songs while the juniors and others cheered them on. Finally, both the juniors and seniors took one last group photo before the evening concluded.

Improving Lives, One Smile at a Time

The pre-school and K5/1st graders enjoyed a dental hygiene presentation from Dr. Reid Patrick Warren on February 16.

Dr. Warren, an alumna and mother of K-4 student Avery, brought an oversized model of a set of teeth for the students to practice correct brushing and flossing methods. Additionally, Dr. Warren showed and talked about some of the dental instruments she uses in performing an exam and even demonstrated a typical checkup using Donovan Cassellas as her volunteer patient.

Thank you to Dr. Warren for sharing this important lesson with our students!
