Taking Time to Say Thanks....

On Friday, September 4, a beautiful arrangement of flowers was delivered to the school. Of course, everyone was curious as who the lucky receiver would be. The envelope said Mrs. Diane. It was not her birthday or anniversary. She was confused as to why such a beautiful gift would be sent.

A parent at our school just wanted to say THANKS for the kindness she showed when their child had a nosebleed in the bathroom that morning. Mrs Diane took care of everything as she always does. Her love for the school and professionalism does not go unnoticed. When you care about what you do, it is obvious to everyone!

Dear Parent....thank you for your thoughtfulness in recognizing one of the hardest working ladies I know! We are blessed at Young to have Mrs. Diane!

Summer Reading Results Coming Soon!

By: Andrea Taylor, Library Media Specialist

It is 6 AM on Saturday morning and I just had to get up and tally summer reading logs while enjoying my morning coffee. I have had many anxious readers ask when I would be announcing the results of Summer Reading. Today I will give away some of the suspense!!!!!!!!!!! Students from R.L. Young recorded 335 hours and 28 minutes of reading over summer break. WOW! I am blown away. This added up to 26 students that participated. I can already envision that number will double and even maybe triple next summer.  Further break down of the data and I have concluded that 6 first graders, 3 second graders, 9 third graders, 5 fourth graders, 1 fifth grader, and 1 sixth grader accepted the reading challenge. The top three students will be named at the AR Kick Off on September 3rd. I will also give certificates to the 26 students that participated. Our goal was for each student to read 10 hours over the summer, which breaks down to only one hour a week over the break. The top three participants will have McDonald's lunch in the library with Mrs. Taylor and the other 23 participants will be enjoying a popsicle party very soon. I am very proud of the "Leader" Readers at RLY!
