Welcome to Robert A. Long High School
January letter from your Principal
Mr. Reeves has some words for seniors and great words on what makes R.A. Long a great high school....see letter
RAL DECA public relations project, Expect Respect, raised about $450 for the Emergency Support Shelter this last Friday. They sold purple t-shirts and collected donations in a "Miracle Minute" at the girls' basketball game this last Friday against Ridgefield.
The RAL DECA chapter chose to build a community service project around the issue of domestic violence and teen dating abuse because it is a major problem in our school, community and nation. In fact, one in three US teens are subject to abuse from a dating partner each year. We are advocating against abuse, spreading information about getting help, and raising money for the Emergency Support Shelter.
Thank you to everyone that supported our project at the game, it was a massive success!
Do you want to have a great and successful year? See a message from Mr. Reeves...
