Where Excellence is the Standard - Week of November 29th
RANDLE HIGH SCHOOL UPDATE
Dear Randle High School Families,
We are in the home stretch of our first semester. Below is important information regarding exemptions, final exam dates, and STAAR End of Course re-rest dates. Please know that we will be sending out several alerts this week as friendly reminders.
We are also providing a STAAR Blitz session by special invitation, students and parents will be notified this week. This is an excellent opportunity to review test taking strategies and content for the English Language Arts and Algebra 1 End of Course exams.
The week prior to the break several families received information regarding compulsory attendance. As a friendly reminder, if there are any discrepancies regarding absences please contact your grade level attendance clerk.
Finally, our principal's student advisory group is currently planning the first ever "Randle High School" Dodge Ball Tournament. This tournament will be used to support our local food pantry by collecting cans and non-perishable food items. There will be male and female divisions. Below are the team requirements:
- Each team must consist of 7 players. (There are no reserves)
- Five dollars per player; total of $35.00 per team. Registrations will be taken during lunch.
- Each team is responsible for their own team name (with admin approval)
- Single game elimination
We hope that all parents will come out and support our students as they raise money and food for those who are less fortunate. Let's work together to finish the semester strong.

TOP 10 Benefits for Students Traveling
Top 10 Benefits of Student Travel:
1. Compassion - Exposure to the problems and perks of other lifestyles helps students see their world in a different way. Having a broad awareness of how other people live and what other cultures prioritize allows a student to think differently about their own lives.
2. Confidence - Living and working for any amount of time in a culture that’s different from home can help prepare students for college in ways more profound than any sleep-away camp or vacation can. Overcoming challenges while traveling help students grow confidence and prepare them for life’s obstacles.
3. Networking - International travel, especially with a group or through a program, provides students with a global network of contacts and references. Plus, instead of relying on others’ opinions, travelers establish perspective, confidence and conviction that make it easier to gain the respect of others.
4. Grit - Traveling away from the comfort of friends, family and familiar surroundings is tough. But doing it shows that a person is interested enough in the rest of the world, and confident enough to venture out and discover other parts of the world. This is a character trait that’s very appealing to colleges and employers.
5. Better academic performance - Research has shown that travel increases gains in academic content knowledge. Traveling while young, of course while fun, is also an important investment to enhance a student’s academic performance in the future.
6. Perspective - Unfamiliarity and separation from home are great incubators for thought. New experiences will question one’s preconceived ideas. This enriching experience challenges students to open their minds regarding food, friends, and basic needs.
7. Individuality - Travel provides experiences to define a person’s place and purpose and establishes lifelong values and priorities. Discovering a new place is also a chance to discover one’s self, without the usual influences of home.
8. Growth & Independence - While away from home and the ease of a regular support system, students have opportunities to see what they are capable of accomplishing by themselves. Traveling allows students to develop themselves in ways that can’t be achieved without stepping outside of their comfort zone.
9. Appreciation - Getting away from home is also a chance to allow a student to realize what they miss most. Experiencing another place and culture is an opportunity to appreciate what they already have and realize the importance of the little things that often go unnoticed.
10. New Friends - Cultural immersion through travel and service programs can also help break down language barriers and open new channels of lifelong communication. Exploring a new place opens doors to establish new friendships and relationships that never would have been acquired without traveling.
MANE Time and PRIDE Plus. These programs will be held during advisory classes, which is a 30-minute block during 4th period.
MANE Time: This program will allow students to build character, prepare for post-secondary goals, and receive assistance with schoolwork.
PRIDE Plus: This program is correlated with our House Bill 4545 that was recently passed for students to receive accelerate learning. If your child did not meet the state's requirements for passing STAAR, they will be placed in either an ELA or Math class depending on their grade level, STAAR scores, and required hours they need to complete.
Please feel free to contact myself, Mrs. Ariel Jenkins, or Ms. Trameasha Strickland if you have any questions or concerns.
