RHS Backwoods looks to answer the age old question ,where does a high school teen go on Friday and Saturday nights? To old to be a kid but too young to be an adult , creating a safe yet fun environment for teens .
The Ridgewood High School Home and School Association, the Administration and the Ridgewood Guild are collaborating to provide an opportunity for our high school students to have a place to go on Friday and Saturday nights after a game or activity.
We want to bring our students “Back to Ridgewood” (BACK WOODS) after 9:30pm instead of spending time in someone’s basement engaging in unsafe activities. Our goal is to have downtown Ridgewood restaurants staying open until 11:00pm or later each Friday and Saturday during the school year. When other communities have turned out their lights for the night, we want our students to enjoy coming “Back to Ridgewood” for a meal, a snack, a cup of coffee, ice cream or finding a new good book to read.
Our goal is to have restaurants develop a cost effective menu for students to enjoy. At BACK WOODS, we plan to have fabulous entertainment at restaurants and businesses for you to enjoy.
This is a collaborative effort aimed at providing healthy venues for our students on Friday and Saturday nights.
We plan to launch our BACK WOODS program on May 20, 2011 with a Band Slam at Van Nest Park. After the Slam, we hope to have some restaurants participate in a pilot for the program.
