School year 2005/2006 was a special one indeed as we changed leadership in welcoming Phil Lee as the Principal of Riverwood Middle School. Jenny Moore continued as one of Mr. Lee's Assistant Principals and was joined by Marchelle Horner. Mr. Lee joined our Raven family via Smithfield Selma High School. Three more classroom teachers joined Riverwood as our student body increased to a record 912 students! Mark Parker served as Student Council President.
Unfortunately, sadness marked 2005/2006 as Riverwood lost its first student Jessica Ferrara, in a tragic accident.
Some special events to remember were:
- Hurricane Katrina
- Iraq's first free election
- Carolina Hurricanes won the Stanley Cup
- Pittsburgh Steelers wins its 5th Super Bowl (One For The Thumb)
