Gators of the Week - Work hard. Get smart. Do good.

Gators of the Week: Varsity and JV Competitive Cheer Win Big in Rock Hill

Work hard. The beginning of competition season started in grand style for both our JV and Varsity Competitive squads as they performed amazing routines at Nations Ford High School on Saturday. JV took second place over all and the varsity squad took first. Despite some recent injuries, the varsity competitive squad did an amazing job. Great job coaches and students.

Gators of the Week: Trout coming to RBHS

Get Smart: Thank you to Amy Price and South Carolina Department of Natural Resources for providing River Bluff a grant to raise trout at RB. Environmental Science students under the direction of Ms. Price will bring this learning experience to life. Great job.

Gators of the Week: Welcome Home Dance - Friday Night

Do good. Student council leaders have worked diligently to prepare and plan an amazing night on Friday kicking off our Welcome Home Festivities. We encourage all students to get tickets this week to participate in the Welcome Home Dance.

EL Design Principle in Action

Collaboration and Competition

Individual development and group development are integrated so that the value of friendship, trust, and group action is clear. Students are encouraged to compete, not against each other, but with their own personal best and with rigorous standards of excellence.

Already this year, many students in competition have done so well. Congratulations to our Men's and Women's Swimming teams who won the region championship on Saturday in North Augusta. What was just as impressive with their win, was the display of sportsmanship between all swimmers and their competitors. We wish both teams all the best in their state competitions.
