Thanksgiving Turkey has been Gobbled!

Well, here at RCS the Thanksgiving turkey has been gobbled and winter is knocking at our mountain door. Students are back on campus, full and rested from a week spent with family and friends, and the academic semester is rolling toward its fruition. Teachers and students are preparing for the final few weeks of the term, putting pens to paper and noses in books, while the campus takes on the festive colors of December. Christmas Trees and Menorahs are appearing along side of inflatable snowmen and plastic dreidels. Spirits are high in anticipation of a Ridge Creek Holiday season and all of the extra activities it brings, including a student-judged Chili Cook off scheduled for Welcome Back Day!!!

Eagles Swoop in to Dominate the Anteaters

The Atlanta Adventist Academy Aardvarks burrowed into the Mountain Aerie Arena Tuesday night expecting ant pincers and instead were greeted by the powerful talons of the Ridge Creek Eagles. The Big Bird Basketballers took control early, swooping in to dominate the anteaters with Eagle-eyed shooting by Birdballers, Aim-sure Singh, Big-gun Barrett, and Dead-shot Long. Demoralized by the antics of the frantic, feathered Superfans and the dominating defense of the RCS Raptors, the waddling animals from Atlanta fell prey to the Eagles in a 38-33 defeat and had a long ride home to the termite mound. Today, the Eagles spread their powerful wings and sharpen their talons for a match-up in Atlanta against the pussy cat panthers prowling their den at Brandon Hall.
