Where Excellence is the Standard - Week of January 24, 2022

RANDLE HIGH SCHOOL UPDATE

Dear Lions,


It's hard to believe that the month of January is almost over and February is right around the corner. I want to start by saying congratulations to our Teacher of the Year and Paraprofessional of the Year.


Our Teacher of the Year is Ms. Tracy Walton, our librarian. As our campus librarian, Ms. Walton has taken the lead on our campus in providing technology support to classrooms, teachers, and students. She has transformed our library into a hub where students have a quiet place to study, read, work on projects, and visit with their peers. She welcomes all visitors with a warm smile and is always willing to help out regardless of the task. Ms. Walton is a true student advocate and is making a difference at Randle High School.


Our Paraprofessional of the Year is Ms. Latisha Major. Ms. Major is one of our educational support paraprofessionals who works with our Special Education department. She is ray of sunshine on our campus and always helps to ensure that students are in class. Ms. Major has built amazing relationships with many of our students. Her passion for helping all students is evident as she works with every student on campus. Just recently, a student who moved TRHS reached out to her and to let her know how he was doing at his new school and that he missed Randle. Now that is POWERFUL!


The staff at Randle would like to congratulate Ms. Walton and Ms. Major on being recognized as the VERY FIRST Teacher of the Year and Paraprofessional of the Year at Randle High School.


I want to take a moment to remind parents that students who have excessive tardies (5 or more) are issued Saturday detention. It is important for students to be on time to school and class. We want to ensure that students are maximizing every minute in every period. Our goal is to help students reach their fullest protentional and assist them in achieving their academic goals.



Randle Events for the week of January 24 - 28, 2022: Holocaust Remembrance Week


Monday: January 24th

Holocaust Announcement:

“Today we highlight The Definition of Holocaust

The Holocaust was the systematic, bureaucratic, state-sponsored persecution and murder of six million Jews by the Nazi regime and its collaborators. Holocaust is a word of Greek origin meaning “sacrifice by fire.” The Nazis, who came to power in Germany in January 1933, believed that Germans were “racially superior” and that the Jews, deemed “inferior,” were an alien threat to the so-called German racial community.”

  • House Bill 45/45 - Tutoring 4:30 PM - 5:30 PM (Transportation Provided)


Tuesday: January 25th

Holocaust Announcement:

“Today we highlight Antisemitism”

“One of the factors leading to the Holocaust was a long history of antisemitism in Germany, Europe, and the world. The word antisemitism means prejudice against or hatred of Jews. The Holocaust, the state-sponsored persecution and murder of European Jews by Nazi Germany between 1933 and 1945, is history’s most extreme example of antisemitism.”

“The Nazi-led government built on existing beliefs and prejudices in creating a racial belief

that resulted in the persecution and murder of Jews in Europe. Antisemitism alone did not lead to the Holocaust, but it contributed to an environment in which prejudice, hate speech and violence could occur.”

  • Basketball (Lady Lions) 4:30PM and 6:00PM


Wednesday: January 26th

Holocaust Announcement:

“Today we highlight The Concentration Camps”

“A concentration camp is a site for the detention of civilians whom a regime perceives to be a security risk of some sort. What distinguishes it from a prison (in the modern sense) is that imprisonment in a concentration camp is independent of any judicial sentence or even indictment and is not subject to judicial review. It was the Nazis who gave the term concentration camp its current meanings. It has become synonymous with brutality and persecution.”

“The Nazi concentration camps essentially had three purposes:

1. To imprison indefinitely people whom the Nazi regime perceived to be a security threat in the broadest possible sense.

2. To eliminate—by murder—individuals and small, targeted groups of individuals.

3. To exploit the so-called labor-potential of the prisoner population.”

  • House Bill 45/45 - Tutoring 4:30 PM - 5:30 PM (Transportation Provided)


Thursday: January 27th

Holocaust Announcement:

“Today we highlight The Number of Victims and the Nazi Persecution”

“The Holocaust was the systematic, bureaucratic, state-sponsored persecution and murder of six million Jewish men, women and children by the Nazi regime. The Nazis believed that Germans were "racially superior" and they wanted to create a “racially pure” state. Jews deemed "inferior," were considered a threat to the so-called German racial community.”

“German authorities also targeted and killed other groups on political, ideological, and behavioral grounds, among them Communists, Socialists, Jehovah's Witnesses, and homosexuals.”

“The Holocaust is the best documented case of genocide. Despite this, calculating the exact numbers of individuals who were killed as the result of Nazi policies is an impossible task. The single most important thing to keep in mind when attempting to document numbers of victims of the Holocaust is that no one master list of those who perished exists anywhere in the world.”


Friday: January 28th

Holocaust Announcement:

“Today we highlight The Liberation of Nazi Camps”

“As Allied troops moved across Europe in a series of offensives against Nazi Germany, they began to encounter tens of thousands of concentration camps, mass graves, and other sites of Nazi crimes. The unspeakable conditions the liberators confronted shed light on the full scope of Nazi horrors.”

“Liberators confronted unspeakable conditions in the Nazi camps, where piles of bodies lay unburied. Only after the liberation of these camps was the full scope of Nazi horrors exposed to the world. The small percentage of inmates who survived resembled skeletons because of the demands of forced labor and the lack of food, compounded by months and years of maltreatment.” “Survivors of the camps faced a long and difficult road to recovery.”

  • Basketball (Boys) 4:30PM in both Gyms 6:00PM
  • Elementary Choir 4-9pm Randle Auditorium
