RKYHS Freshmen Participate in Program on Achieving Balance

With the school year nearly halfway through and midterms approaching, the RKYHS ninth grade classes participated in a two-part program led by the guidance department and Learning Lab that discussed the many challenges of high school, along with a variety of solutions. Some of these challenges include a more extensive workload, the expectations of high school with respect to standards, the challenges of balancing obligations, both academic and co-curricular and social pressures stemming from being the youngest in a new environment. Time management, planning and organization were discussed as being critical factors in keeping track of school, sports teams and clubs, family events and obligations and a social life with friends. Utilizing planners, Google Classroom, maintaining organization of materials and lockers, were emphasized as being useful tools. Stress reduction techniques were also discussed and students were informed of the incredible support staff that the school has available to help them.
