Senior Pictures for Class of 2017

Around the first week of June, Strawbridge will mail a postcard to each senior with information about senior pictures and with an assigned date and time.  If a senior cannot attend at the assigned time they will need to call Strawbridge customer service to reschedule at a time that falls within those 4 days. If for some reason you do not get a card with picture information – please call Strawbridge customer service. (Customer Service1-800-326-9080).

At this summer session, Strawbridge will take the required formal picture (drape/tux) that is used in the yearbook.  They also can take additional casual photos in clothing of your choice.  Specific details will be included on the postcard mailed to you.

We know that there is no way to pick dates that are good for everyone – there will be an additional day at school for seniors to do the required formal drape/tux picture that is required for the senior section of the yearbook.  This date will be communicated at a later time.

Once again, if for some reason you do not get a card with picture information – please call Strawbridge customer service. (Customer Service1-800-326-9080).

RBHS Director of Bands Receives Award

River Bluff High Director of Bands Kenneth Turner received The Bandworld Legion of Honor award for 2015 from The John Philip Sousa Foundation.
 
The Legion of Honor was established in 1989 to annually honor eight of the finest band directors in the United States. Recipients must have at least 15 years of teaching experience, including the development of a superior concert band program. Recipients also must contribute significantly to their profession by demonstrating dedication to concert bands and concert band music.
 
Turner began his teaching career in 1992 and has served as director of bands at River Bluff High for two years. Turner serves as president of the Palmetto Concert Band and has held various offices with the South Carolina Band Directors Association. Concert bands that Turner directed consistently developed reputations for superior performance.
 
“My students feed off of my enthusiasm, which I believe is the key to igniting the passion for a subject in anyone,” Turner said. “In short, my students love band because I love band.”
 
Turner received The Bandworld Legion of Honor award on December 18, 2015, at the Midwest Band and Orchestra Clinic in Chicago, Illinois.

Law Center Students win “We the People” State Competition

River Bluff High students in Level Two at the school’s Center for Law and Global Policy Development won a statewide We the People competition on Thursday, January 7 that was sponsored by the South Carolina Bar Association’s Law Related Education Division.
RBHS students competed against 10 other teams in the competition, which required students to demonstrate their knowledge of constitutional principles and other aspects of American government during simulated congressional hearings. The students testified before a panel of judges that assessed students’ ability to evaluate, take and defend positions on historical and contemporary issues.
RBHS students won Best Overall Unit in three of out of the six unit competitions at the event. The students will travel in April to Washington, D.C., where the students will compete in the national We the People competition. We the People: The Citizen and the Constitution enhances students’ civic responsibility as well as their understanding of the American constitutional democracy.
RBHS students Melissa Byars, Reese Corry, Bradi Crockett, Sydney Crosby, Julia Dales, Ryan Eckstrom, Graylen Grant, Merrit Jones, Lillian Lawrence, Brendan Montesinos, John Simpson and Kimberly Vonada celebrate their win at the statewide We the People competition.
