Message From the Principal

       Dear Parents,
       We had a wonderful school year and are gearing up for an exciting fall                   
       semester. I’d like to share a few exciting things happening  at R. L. Young.                                  
· Our school system will be participating in the SACS Accreditation Process for the renewal of our certification. If you have not taken the parent survey, we would really appreciate your input. Just visit this link:
· Supply lists were included in the report cards, but can also be accessed on the internet. Just look on the school blog, left side under pages. While you are logged on, check out the posts about coming attractions, announcements, and other information for parents. You will hear it FIRST on the blog. You can also become a member of the R. L. Young Facebook page entitled “HOW MANY PEOPLE LOVE RLYOUNG”.
· Class rolls will be posted by August 6th on the front doors of the main building. No requests or homeroom changes will be made. We are blessed with an excellent, experienced faculty and your child will be well served no matter what teacher they are assigned. You child’s new teacher will either call or mail you an invitation to attend our annual MEET and GREET.
· R. L. Young’s MEET & GREET will be held on Thursday, August 16th. Each grade level will have a special meeting time. Prior to the grade level meetings, the principal will be hosting a gathering to share Title I information from 2:30 to 3:00 p.m. Door prizes will be available.
· During our MEET AND GREET, plan to join our very active PTO for only $5 per family. While you are joining PTO in the lunchroom, stop by to pay lunch money so that your child will be ready to go! The new school t-shirt orders will be available.

The faculty, staff, and I encourage you to let your child to take advantage of FREE access to STUDY ISLAND, a website which covers your child’s current grade reading and math skills. It’s learning and fun all rolled into one! Just and use the same password and login from this school year. If your child is unable to remember their password, please call the school and we can help.

NEW Page Added -2012-13 Student Supply Lists

Are you an early school supply shopper or bargain hunter? If so, click on the page located on the left side of R. L. Young's school blog entitled "2012-13 Student Supply Lists" to print a shopping list for your child.

Please note that in grades K-2 it is preferred that you make a $ donation and the teachers do all of the shopping, ordering, picking up, locating each item, etc. EVERYONE is a winner and it is SO much easier on the parent! If you choose to shop for supplies in those specific grades, the items are also listed on this page.

If you purchase supplies, please bring to the Open House/Meet and Greet scheduled on August 16th.
