Monday’s Breakfast: Biscuits & Gravy

Today’s Lunch: Bosco Sticks or Chimichanga

On Tuesday, March 21tst, Rockridge will be taking a bus down to Monmouth College and Western Illinois University for campus tours.  The hope is that this trip will allow interested juniors to compare a large, state school with a small, private school in order to help narrow down the college search.  Interested juniors should see Mrs. Bohnsack to sign up.  A limited number of spots are available, so first come, first serve.  Please do not sign up for this trip if you already know where you want to go to college, or if you aren’t planning on attending a four-year college.

Juniors and Seniors, if you may be interested in becoming a softball umpire this summer, see Mr. Bizarri for more information.  The Quad Cities Umpiring Association is looking to recruit students that might be interested in exploring umpiring softball.  There is a USA Softball Clinic coming up on March 5th.  Mr. Bizarri is a registered USA Softball umpire, and he will be attending the clinic.  If you would like, you can join Mr. Bizarri at the clinic to at least feel more comfortable at the clinic.  There is a fee for the clinic, and only those students that have a basic knowledge of softball or baseball should consider the opportunity.
