Thanks, Ridgewood High School!

Thanks to Ridgewood High School for donating to the historical society a set of 22 old school yearbooks.

The yearbooks go back to the year the school opened, in 1978-1979, when Ridgewood was a junior high school.

The first yearbook to refer to the school as a high school is 1984, although in 1983-84 Ridgewood only taught grades 8 to 10. A grade was added each year.

Except for summer school, Ridgewood High School has closed, to become Wendell Krinn Technical High School in August.

Combined with the four Ridgewood yearbooks we already had, we now have 1979-1985, 1987-1994, 1999, 2001-05, 2007, and 2011-13.
