Middle School parents work together to provide social activities for 7th and 8th graders at Riverdale. Activities include the Friday Night Dancing School, a formal Winter Dance, and a year-end 8th Grade Brunch and Promotion celebration.  One fundraiser usually occurs to pay for the 8th grade class gift.
