This Week at River Oaks



River Oaks Celebrates 25 Years of Learning on Thursday, May 12th!

Please come out and join us to reconnect with fellow graduates, former staff and community members during our 25th Anniversary celebration. The theme of the evening is "Then and Now".  The celebrations begin at 5:00 p.m. with a BBQ and some performances from our current students. At 6:30 p.m. we'll have a more formal presentation with some guest speakers. From 7:00-8:00 p.m. you'll have a chance to walk around the school, look at memorabilia and reconnect with others. If you are a former band member and can bring your own instrument, we invite you to join our bands when they perform. See you there!
