Dear RHS Alumni,

On June 20, 2016, Ridgewood High School graduates 424
seniors. As members of the Ridgewood High School Alumni Association (RHSAA), we are thrilled to have them join our ranks. We would like to wish our graduates the best of luck and good fortune in their ongoing pursuit of a “tradition of excellence” in college or their choice of post-graduation endeavors.

We would like to take this opportunity to fill you in on some of the steps the RHSAA has taken since our inception in 2014.

The RHSAA is now a 501(c)(3) nonprofit recognized by the state
of New Jersey. We are an active and dynamic board of alumni spanning graduating classes from the 1950s to the 2000s.

Since our website launched, we have had thousands visit the site and many alumni have registered via our online portal.

The reunion subcommittee has connected with dozens of class
years to help them plan alumni events, including campus tours. If you have an upcoming reunion, please let us know.

Our apparel team has created t-shirts (which will be featured
as Project Graduation’s Gift to all seniors). We have also added
umbrellas, blankets and hats. We are working on version 2.0 of apparel for the upcoming 2016-2017 academic year.

This past March, the RHSAA revitalized the Distinguished Alumni
program and introduced five new inductees who represent some of the best and brightest of RHS graduates. They joined the twelve previously inducted in 2008.

So, what’s next?

We would love to continue to connect with you. Please register online at

We will also be launching a brick buying campaign in an effort
to beautify our already lovely RHS campus and to celebrate our 125th anniversary in 2017.

If you are interested in supporting any of these programs or
otherwise supporting the RHSAA, please make a donation via our website.

If you would like to volunteer to help the current and future students of RHS, we would love for you to join our team.

Congratulations to the RHS Class of 2016!

  1. The “Ridgewood Alumni” shirts were terrific and the graduates appreciated and LOVED them. Thank you for doing this. Our support is forthcoming.

    . . . . . . . now if only someone at RHS/BoE could explain why the kids diplomas came in plain envelopes instead of the lovely display folders that have been given in the past. A very real disappointment and not in keeping with the Tradition of Excellence.
