Most of the activities at Ridgewood High seem to revolve around sports. However during a period where no athletic activity is available, the school has an activity called "Cowbell Week" (see Cowbell-A-Rooney). Cowbell Week is an activity where students run around with cowbells tied to straps that they throw around random students. Once a student gets a cowbell around his or her neck, he or she is required to imitate cattle and wear that cowbell for the duration of the game. No method of belling a student is illegal, providing it doesn't cause any injuries in the process.
When the last two students are unbelled, the winner is decided by a ceremony called "Night of the Cowbell" where players have to jump on a springboard and place a bell around a basketball hoop with a felt cow head over the basket. If both players succeed in belling the cow, the basketball hoop is raised for another round, and more if necessary.
