#RockRidgeRising: The Story

In addition, we invite you to listen to a recent podcast featuring Eveleth High School 1984 graduate, Brian Raduenz and Virginia High School 1987 graduate, Willie Spelts. Brian and Willie talk about their great experiences as a Golden Bear and a Blue Devil. They also talk about the #RockRidgeRising Campaign, which allows people the opportunity to support this once in a lifetime, state of the art project.  Enjoy the fun stories and appreciation from yesteryear, along with opportunities to join us in becoming Fiercely United.



To develop community partnerships and relationships that will benefit both the school and the partner.

To offer a wide variety of opportunities for the community to partner with Rock Ridge Public Schools.

We offer numerous opportunities to support Rock Ridge Public Schools. Maybe you want to sponsor equipment in the science labs or in the auto shops or the woodworking classrooms. Your passion might be interested in supporting band, choir or orchestra. How about athletics or activities? We have scoreboard partnerships available.

We can match you with your passion and put your funding to immediate use. We will be able to make the items listed below even better than they are already planned to be.
