A Message from Mr. Browning

End of Year Report:

 

As the school year comes to a close I am quickly reminded that there really is no “off-season” as we transition from one school year to the next. With that, it is important to celebrate the good, evaluate the not-so-good, and decide what comes next.

 

THE GOOD

Attendance Rate! London High School improved from 93.93% last year to a 94.47% this year. That is a positive that should not be overlooked. Those numbers reflect students who want to come to school because their teachers are doing things in the classroom that is making learning exciting. While I like the improvement we need to continue this improvement going into next year. That half-point will make a difference in grades, growth, and achievement on End-of-Course exams. What would be great is to see another half-point increase and see all of those positives take another step towards excellence for the 2017-2018 school year.

 

THE NOT-SO-GOOD

Tardy to school. Ugghhh. London High School had 2,365 tardies this school year compared to 2,159 last year. That increase of 206 was a 9.5% increase from the previous year. Going into next school year we need to shore up our arrival to school. Many students were seconds to minutes late--unfortunately, late is late and there is no “fashionably” late to school or a job. I wish there was an easy answer for this one outside of the obvious--get up a few minutes earlier so you avoid rushing and cutting it close. Let this be a major goal for the coming year, get to school on-time more often.

 

WHAT COMES NEXT

Well, the possibilities are Unlimited! We have over 30 students currently enrolled in summer school to make up credits and stay on track to graduate. That is the ultimate goal and we need to keep students moving in that direction. As I overheard one graduate last month say, “Now what?”, we are reminded that commencement is not the end, but the beginning of a life of possibilities. Take what you have learned and begin to apply this knowledge and skill to what you want to do with the rest of your life.

 
Have a wonderful and safe summer!  
 
 All the Best,
-Michael Browning
