Heading In To November...

Good Afternoon RA Long Students and Families,


We made it through the flurry of Smarter Balanced Testing, Homecoming, PSAT testing, Arena Conferencing, and a myriad of other events.


November is a time to really buckle down and stay focused on school as we head into the holiday season. Grades are important. But, earning credit is the most important thing to focus on by the end of the 1st semester(January 25). You should earn 3 credits for semester 1 if you pass all of your classes. If you don't, you may no longer be on track to graduate on time.


Please reach out to your teachers if you need assistance. They are here to help and support you to get you where you want to be.


Some reminders for success:


  • · Be on time
  • · Come to school every day, and go to every class. You need to be here to earn credit.
  • · Focus on your work at hand. Complete it early if you can.
  • Complete all of your assignments.
  • Check Skyward frequently.
  • · Be willing to ask for help.
  • · If you don’t understand, ask a clarifying question.
  • · Come in after school if you need help.
  • · Don’t put things off until the last minute.
  • · Schedule a bit of time at home to finish up assignments.
  • You know the behavioral expectations of how we operate here at RA Long. Spend less time challenging them, and focus on what will help you be most successful to move you closer to that diploma.
  • · Be respectful in your classes. Help will come first to those that are trying. If you are confused, respectfully ask for assistance.


Getting back to in-person learning has been challenging for some.

Being ready for school, prepared, and giving your best effort is going to yield greater success.



You can do hard things ! You got this !


Respectfully,

R Reeves, Principal
