RLHS Construction Project webpage now available!

One of the priorities set when the November 4, 2014 referendum was passed was that the District would provide regular updates to our community regarding the process of this construction project. A webpage has been developed in order to do just this. If at any time you feel that you would like to see additional information on this webpage, please do not hesitate to contact Heather Bennett at hbennett@rlas-116.org or 847-270-9007.

RLAS-116 to host Substitute Teacher In-Service on Monday, January 5

Round Lake School District 116 will be hosting a Substitute Teacher In-service on Monday, January 5th from 8:00am to 11:00am at John T. Magee Middle School, 500 Cedar Lake Road, Round Lake, IL  60073.  The meeting will be held in the cafeteria.  Parking and entrance are in the back of the school. 

This in-service is for current substitute teachers and individuals interested in learning more about substitute teaching.  Individuals without teaching experience who hold a bachelor’s degree and substitute teachers employed in other area school districts are invited to attend. 

The goal of the in-service is to assist substitute teachers in feeling more comfortable, more prepared and more confident at each grade level.  Information will be provided on general substitute procedures, specific building procedures, current curriculum, behavioral support and classroom management strategies. 

Each participant will receive a handbook which includes this information as well as organizational tools and resource information. 

Please direct your questions and RSVP to Patty Stanko (pstanko@rlas-116.org) (phone: 847-270-9009) by January 2, 2015.

SPARKS 25 DAY CHALLENGE

Sparks 25 day challenge

Starting on September 29th, 2014 students of Murphy will begin Sparks 25 days of activity! We Challenge the students to move their bodies as much as they can! Schools all over the country will be participating in this challenge. What is physical activity? If you’re moving more than your fingers, you can count it for physical activity! That means doing helping clean, walking dogs, riding bikes, gardening, active video games (Wi and Xbox connect) and of course any sport or after school activity counts as well! Time spent in P.E. class and recess will also count! We are challenging students to get at least sixty minutes of activity per day, five days a week. Feeling active? Continue the challenge on the weekend and really show us how you can move! There will be prizes for the most active school, class, and the most active students will receive individual prizes! Students will fill out their log sheet at the end of each day. Please do NOT throw the logs sheets out. You will find them stapled in your child’s tracker for safe keeping!  On Monday November 3rd, students log sheets are to be turned in to their teachers. Don’t forget to have a parent sign to prove you did your activity!
