Ridgeview School went wild Friday, celebrating the successes of the schools participation in the countywide EPIC program. The EPIC Encourage, Protect, Invest, Connect initiative was designed to encourage faculty, staff, students, family and community members to work together to develop mutual respect and understanding. On Friday, Ridgeview students were recognized for the various ways they have demonstrated positive behavior with an exciting Wilderness Safari. The celebration included visits from exotic animals, team building exercises and much more. Top left, eighth graders Gabi Paladino, left, and Josey Smith get to know a three-year-old Burmese Python. The snake was among a handful of exotic animals on display during the event.
