Walking through the hallways as a senior; a student that is about to go into real world as an adult contributing to society. College may be in the future for this individual, but they also may be confused. Hope has arrived for this student and students of all different scenarios.
“I’ve been working with some teachers and administrators for the past nine to twelve months about creating some opportunities for students while they’re here,” said Mr. Bill Rickard, an assistant principal at Red Lion. “Some of them we’ve run into accidentally and some I’ve been chasing down purposefully.”

Many students know the all-too-familiar call of Advanced Placement classes. These classes entice students with their 1.3 weight and high credit value, as well as with the possibility for college credit if they do well on their AP test.
What many students do not know, however, is that there is another option that also offers a 1.3 weight and college credit.
This second option is called dual enrollment, and it is when a high school student attends both classes at their high school and classes on a local college campus.

With a new school year comes changes.
For years, physical education, or gym class, has been held at the high school two times during a six-day cycle, and then a study hall takes place for the four remaining days.
Now, a typical ninth through eleventh grade student’s schedule consists of gym every single day, but only for one semester.
The three levels of phys ed are PE 1 for freshman, 2 for sophomores, and 3 for juniors. As a senior, gym is no longer a requirement.
Not only is there a change in scheduling, but there’s a change in the activities which take place during the phys ed period.
