Girls on the Run

Blue Ridge is proud to be participating in an exciting new program for young ladies in 3rd-5th grades. Girls on the Run is a club that meets twice a week after school to help girls build confidence, self esteem, and healthy habits - all while training to run a 5k run/walk. The season runs from 9/12/16-11/17/16.

Fresh Fruits and Vegetables

Blue Ridge participates in the Fresh Fruits and Vegetables Program offered by the USDA. Several times each week, students get to try and to learn about a new fruit or vegetable in their classrooms. Thanks to the BR Kitchen Staff - their work makes this possible. This month, one of the foods students were able to try was jicama.

Welcome to the Library
