With summer rapidly approaching, the Class of 2019 has begun to savour their last few weeks with friends and reflect upon their time at Riverdale. While most of their peers continue regular classes, a few select seniors elect to add a final project to their legacy.
For much of the graduating class, these final few weeks of high school are greeted with a sense of relief and delight accompanied by an increased sense of relaxation. However, for a few members of the senior class, their work has just begun.
From participating in choral, acting, and dance classes at school, to watching Broadway productions in Manhattan, the arts play a substantial role in students’ lives. With an arts education, kids are able to develop critical and creative thinking skills in addition to learning how to work as a team.

The celebrations come as Riverdale has experienced a growth in the number of on-campus clubs and organizations focused on feminism and women in recent years. A newly formed feminist coalition will also be integral to the day’s success, bringing energy to a month of celebration so important to many members of the Riverdale community.
Throughout the month of February, Riverdale celebrated Black History Month with a multitude of events for the whole school. Since 1976, February has been dedicated to celebrating Black History in America, and Riverdale brings this celebration to the school community.
