Yearly Events

The Italian program at Union Ridge School is involved in many community events. 

Columbus Day Parade

Union Ridge School has walked in the Columbus Day Parade for a number of years.  Prior to the parade, students work together to create projects on Christopher Columbus which are displayed during the month of October to celebrate Columbus and Italian Heritage Month. 

Festa Italiana at Ridgewood High School 

We participate in La Festa Italiana (Italian Fest) which is held at Ridgewood High School every December. We showcase a performance along with student projects. 

Immersion Day at Ridgewood High School 

Union Ridge Middle school students join Ridgewood High School's Italian students in an Italian language immersion day during which students communicate only in Italian. 

Fine Arts Fair

Union Ridge holds an annual Fine Arts Fair evening as a showcase for our music, art, and language departments that is open to the public. Union Ridge School's Italian students have performed dances, songs, and plays and cultural projects have been displayed from multiple grade levels. Past performances by the students include: dancing La Tarantella, staging a play on the story of Pinocchio, and creating Carnevale masks.
