Ridgway Secondary School has recently re-finished our gym floor and is in the process of decorating with new sports banners for our walls as we had to part ways with “Sparky the Demon”. This means we had to take down our business banners that hung in the gym too. Business banners have always been a great way to advertise to your local community members and surrounding schools that visit. It is also a great way to support our athletics programs to help provide new jerseys, team gear, supplies, and to provide a memorable experience for our student-athletes. In the past, we even had families who wanted to donate money and support our programs. So, you don’t need to be associated with any particular business to have a banner made. First-time banner fees are $250 to cover the cost of making the banner. Each year after that we will ask for a $125 fee to continue hanging your banner in the gym for that calendar year. So, if your business or family would like to have a banner hung up in our gym, please email Athletic Director, Shawnn Row at email@example.com with the following information: Name/Title of Business Subtext and/or message JPEG of the business logo (optional) Banners will not be made until they are paid for, so please drop off a check at the front office at RSS or mail it to 1200 Green St., Ridgway, CO. Deadline for payments for banner production for the 2023 year will be Tuesday, December 12.
