Radford is full of tradition, yet we still enjoy newer activities and events that involve the entire school.  Be sure to check out our Traditions page for even more events.

Red Ribbon Week – Students not only learn about the dangers of drugs and bullying, but they also enjoy a week-long celebration, each day themed in the color red. Whether it’s a Red Breakfast, or Wear Red day, Radford students remain Drug-Free.

Science Fair – All grades, from Kindergarten to High School Seniors participate in the Radford Science Fair. Entries are judged by community volunteers and project boards are graded on both the students’ visual and verbal presentations. Winners also advance to the Sun Country Regional Science and Engineering Fair in El Paso.  Some of our students have advanced to the International Science Fair and have been nominated as a Broadcom Master.  Click here for a gallery of pictures of the 2018 Science Fair.


Our Spelling Bee Champion Spells Winning Word

Geography Bee – Got a knack for world locations? Lower school students get to brush up on their geography skills to prepare for this annual event.

Spelling Bee – Students through 8th grade participate in the Radford Spelling Bee and the winner goes straight to the City-wide competition!

Lock-in – High School students are locked in school for one night and enjoy night-long games, movies, sports and anything else they can think of to stay awake all night--but will they?  Event is chaperoned.

Jeopardy – Every semester, the high school math teacher, Mr. Streeter, conducts a Jeopardy competition which challenges students’ knowledge on different categories and topics, as well as tests their ability to work together against the clock.

Dress Up Time!


Radford’s Prom is open to ALL high school students and is a wonderful night of
dancing and socializing, where the Prom Queen and Prom King are elected.  Look at the gallery of pictures of the 2018 Prom.

Other Dances

Every school year brings us different dances sponsored by various organizations. In the past there have been Junior High dances such as a Halloween Dance or Valentine’s Day Dance. For the younger students, a Frozen Ball brings out the “Elsa and Anna” in all. 




Stage Productions – Every year, students of any grade audition for roles in stage productions directed by Mrs. Swaney.  Performances are held for parents in the Templin Auditorium.
