Quarter 1 is officially in the books! Time to reflect on how the first part of the school year has gone, and what corrections that might need to be made. For each of your classes, what are your students strengths? What areas do they need to be challenged in? How is the rigor in class and what adjustments can you make to ensure you and your students are getting the most out of your time together?
Laptops are still new to our student body. What are some strategies that we can implement in the classroom to help our students become comfortable with using technology both inside of class, and bringing it home? We must instil personal responsibility, in keeping with our ESLR’s, for our students in this capacity.
Thank you to the Leadership team, Mr. Deidehban, and all of the chaperons and those who helped us during spirit week, the rally, football game, and the dance. It’s a lot of extra hours but we appreciate you and so do the students.
Thank you to Ms. Verbeck for helping us set up all the theater tech and ights for the dance! Thank you to Mr. Johnson for organizing alumni events during the weekend. Thank you Mr. Benson and Ms. Cain for working Saturday School the past two weeks. Thank you to Ms. Hillstead for bringing your wonderful family to help chaperone the dance. Thank you to Ms. Dumar, who brought her roommates to help too!
Thank you to Ms. Lola and Ms. Lucita for always making so many of our phone calls and outreach to our parents here at Richmond High. Your work in assisting with Adult Ed, and even PTSA have been a huge boost to our school and campus. Way to go!
Thank you Coaches Odisio, Jaymot, Cabral, and Tianero! It’s the end of the fall season for many of our sports teams this week, and we all appreciate the huge amount of extra time you give to our school and students.
Upcoming Spirit Week and Homecoming!
