With several changes happening recently at school, it’s important to recognize their positive effects.
Despite some hesitance in the beginning, the mobile LISD movement has benefitted the students and faculty. With textbooks going digital, students no longer need to lug around heavy books each day. This has spawned a more technological based school day, bringing students into a new age of online learning. Thus, allowing not only students but teachers to have more flexibility with their personal work schedule.
Recovering from what most agree was a negative year last year, the culture and atmosphere have come back stronger and more positive. From sporting events, to the general school day, less tension hovers throughout the student body, and relationships between students and teachers are more favorable.
With the restoration of more amicable relationships and atmosphere comes an incredible amount of student participation in community events and in student sections at games. This participation is important to raise the mood of the school and bond of the students.
While there have been significant and beneficial changes at school, there have also been some not so positive events this year. The social media representation of the school hasn’t been the best and could affect future views of Rouse. However, this is a just another obstacle to overcome, seeing as students are the ones driving this effect.
This can easily be resolved with more tweets highlighting good things that go on at school, and students spending less time bashing the school for an occasional negative event. It’s important to remember that we can control the image of how others view our school. We can band together and represent Rouse in the best way possible.
We have many good things going on at RHS such as immense support provided by the student body. Let’s stop our occasional small-mindedness, quit fighting with one another, and focus on those things. Instead of perpetuating potential problems, let’s work together like families do to achieve our goals and showcase our Raider Pride.
