  • The Maroon Award

    On January 26, six students received the

    Maroon Award at a breakfast ceremony. The

    Maroon Award was created to recognize

    students who do the little things right when no

    one is looking and help make Ridgewood High

    School a better place.

    The six award recipients for 2016 are Jack

    Simpson, Maggie Rapaport, Kathryn Kearney,

    Olivia Sullivan, Thomas Carmona, and Aiden

    Gibney.

    Students are nominated for this award by

    teachers who know them best and observe the

    little things that they do everyday to help out

    the school community or their fellow students.
