Ever wonder what teachers do at school when the students aren't there?
They were polishing up their teaching skills and learning new talents, too. Mrs. Armstrong, 2nd grade teacher at Young, shared what she learned from an IPOD training after being selected as one of 20 teachers in the state invited to attend.
The principal shared some cool websites teachers could use to spice their lessons up. We also met and studied the last 3 years of ARMT test scores for grades 3-6. Even though our students are so successful during testing, we keep working on reaching ALL students.
R. L. Young...a good place to learn and grow....even for adults.

Students from R.L. Young Elementary School in Talladega raised $640 and presented the money to Pat Miller of the American Red Cross to help aid in the relief effort in Haiti. Each student donating money got a heart that they decorated and many wrote notes on the hearts to the children affected by last month’s devastating earthquake.
