A note to parents on involvement

Parents, if you want your child to be more successful in school, become even more involved in their schooling. You can make a real difference for the good of your child. "When parents are involved in their children's educations at home, they do better in school. And when parents are involved in school, children go farther in school - and the schools they go to are better" (National Education Association, 2006).

Is the Hope scholarship in danger of running out of funds?

I spoke with Charles Blakewood about his opinion on the currently dwindling Hope Scholarship that Georgia offers. Mr. Blakewood teaches both Speech and English as RHHS.

Wildcat band plays J.F. Gregory

The Wildcat band played a Christmas themed concert in J.F. Gregory Park last Tuesday. The park's large pavilion was packed with parents, students, and yours truly all in anticipation of the yuletide music to come. The pavilion was truly a spectacle of holiday spirit and was ablaze with light. The RHMS band preceded their high school counterparts with a festive medley of traditional holiday tunes.

Political thought: we're all Americans

With the news all abuzz with information about the coming election it's hard not to dwell on political thinking. While I'm fiercely against "blind" politics, siding with any political party or way of thinking simply because the people around you do, politics have always been a point of interest for me. At this stage in my life I don't claim any true political allegiances and certainly have not decided which party best represents my views. In fact, the more I study politics the more I dislike the idea of party politics as a whole. I find it ...

Club of the week

Odyssey of the Mind: Odyssey is a truly unique club where students are challenged with complex problems. Unlike other clubs, all the members don't meet on a certain day of the week.

This system of teams and less scheduling allows Odyssey members considerable freedom to shape their commitment levels and personal schedules as they need to. Nevertheless, Odyssey of the Mind requires a great deal of dedication. The teams are given puzzles to solve in ...
