Even when Young students graduate from six grade and leave our campus, there is still a part of them that remains...in our hearts. Whether we see them in town, at a football game, or even go visit at their new school...they will always belong to R. L. Young.

One of the most important activities we do is have Patrick Thornton as a speaker. His passion for helping our city be rid of drugs is impressive. Better yet, his determination to help children understand that drugs destroy lives, families, neighbors, and bodies is obvious.
Pictured above is Mr. Thornton and his son Tanner. We feel safer knowing that this great dad is not only thinking about his son, but your sons and daughters, too. We appreciate this speaker taking his time to talk with all the schools about the danger of doing drugs.
Let's protect our children by reminding them, not just during Red Ribbon Week that drugs are not for them.
**Special thanks to Ms. Deese, school counselor for arranging Mr. Thornton's visit.

Last spring, R. L. Young celebrated its rich and successful history of excellent teaching, strong parent and community support, and quality students. Grab a coke or cup of coffee and a snack, then sit back to enjoy the video created especially for this event.
This tells me several things:
Attendance is important to our students
Attendance is important to their parents
These students are learning more because they have not missed instruction.

A parent shared a nifty idea that I'd like to pass along....
During AMERICAN EDUCATION WEEK, Nov. 16-20th, you might like to make a donation in honor of one of our wonderful teachers or staff members. All donations will go to the purchasing of ELMOS (document cameras) for the classrooms.
You can make a donation to help us make this happen...just let us know you want to contribute to the auditorium restoration. It will be placed in this account. The total project should cost around 13,000 dollars.
