During the month of May, a number of RCS High School Seniors registered to take part in the Albany County Sheriff’s self-defense program called R.A.D. through the school. According to their website, R.A.D offers effective self-defense options for women to remain safe while allowing them to actively improve their self-defense skill sets and social-emotional well-being.

Each school year, we continue to understand the positive impact of introducing STEM/STEAM into today's curriculums -- from the elementary level through high school. As its importance grows, it is quickly changing today's classroom experience as it relates to the introduction of Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics (STEAM).
