Risley History Project

Risley History Project

Our school librarian, Mrs. Karen Olson, is currently creating an archive of Risley's history.  Part of the archive includes yearbooks that date clear back to 1950, but unfortunately we are missing almost all of the yearbooks from the 1940s and most of them from 1961 to 1988.

If you or someone you know went to our school and have any old yearbooks (even written in), newsletters, pictures, uniforms, T-shirts, or any other Risley memorabilia please contact Mrs. Olson at 549-7449 if you would like to donate them to our archives.

School Library Information

Did you know that we have thousands of books available to check out in the Risley Library Media Center?  We also were awarded the prestigious  Laura Bush Foundation for American Libraries grant this year and as a result there will be hundreds of new titles added to our library collection in the coming months.  We have something to read for EVERYONE!  Stop in soon and check out a book!!!

Library hours are Monday-Thursday 8:00am to 4:15pm and Fridays 8:00am to 1:25pm.
Please contact School Librarian, Karen Olson at 549-7449  with any questions.

See you at the library!!!!!

The Power of ONE to Make a Difference....

"The Power of One"

You have an incredible power within you to make positive changes to yourself and to other people around you.
You have the power to choose to be the beginning of positive changes around you. Don't wait for positive change to come to you.  Be the first to make the positive change happen.
Your positive change is only limited by your thoughts and actions. Open your mind and expand your thoughts beyond your normal vision and experience the incredible change that only one person can bring to so many others.

Be the power of one....
- J. Charest
