Welcome Back Panthers!
If you are an incoming freshman, let me be the first to welcome you to the Panther Family. We can’t wait to see everybody back to start what promises to be a fantastic school year this year. Our custodians have been working all summer long to make sure the school sparkles on that very first day. They did a fantastic job.
This is going to be an exciting year for Round Lake High School. The construction crew continues to work on a multi-million dollar athletic field renovation project that is going to result in a brand new stadium complete with a state of the art turf field, new bleachers, concessions (that will still serve the best food in Lake County), press box and outdoor track. Updated practice fields and tennis courts that are on campus are coming soon too. We all can’t wait to be able to celebrate a touchdown or cheer on a game winning shot in soccer from the new home of Panther Athletics. Hope to see you all at the games, tennis matches, and track meets.
I’m looking forward to connecting with all the students as I visit the classrooms to see some of the amazing things that you are doing in all of your classes. I always feel a sense of pride when I see all of the great things that can be done in Graphics Design or Project Lead the Way. I stand in awe listening to the thoughts of young entrepreneurs when I step into Business Incubator and it is literal “music to my ears” when I invite myself into a band or choir class. I’m so happy to see when students take advantage of all that the high school has to offer. Make sure you live your high school experience to the fullest.
Here are some important upcoming dates so that you can mark your calendars.
Friday, August 9th from 8:30 to 3:20 – Ninth Grade Orientation- Incoming ninth graders will spend the day at the high school to become acclimated to the school and the how we do things the “Panther Way”. The counselors and the Link Crew are very excited for the day. Information from the Counseling Department will be mailed home soon.
Tuesday, August 13th from 5:30 to 7:00 – RLHS Open House – Come to the high school before the first day to meet your teachers, see the building and get information from our community partners at the tables set up in the main entrance.
Thursday, August 15th- First day of school – It’s time to stop sleeping in late and spending the day at the beach or the mall. We will see you bright and early on the first day. I’ll be out in front, stop by and say hello. I can’t wait to hear all of the fun and exciting things you did on your summer break.
Looking forward to spending what is going to be the “best year ever” with you.
