    This here is a picture and article on a basketball player at RMHS who played varsity as a freshman.
    Can you still play sports in each season if you are taking 2 or more honors classes
    Joe, handling honors classes and athletics isn't really that hard. I'm taking four honors classes this year, and I played football and basketball. It's been pretty easy to keep up with everything. You have to remember that you get studies for a semester so that really helps out with getting home work done. Hope you do well next year.

    What are the demands for the sports teams? How often do teams practice and how much harder is it to get into varsity than JV?
    Quite honestly it really depends on the sport. Some freshman sports are more laid back but others such as football and basketball are really demanding. You are more than likely not going to be playing JV or varsity anything as a freshman, unless that sport only offers JV and varsity (hockey, track, cross country). To play JV or varsity as a freshman you have to be an extremely sklled player.

    - If I'm placed into a class that is too hard or easy for me, can I go into another class and if so, how long does it take until I'm in the class of my level?(Matt V 85)
    - When coming to a decision on what class I should take in high school, what should I mainly base my decision off of? (Matt V 85)
    Matt, If you need to make a decision on which classes to take next year base it solely off of what YOU want. Even if you have friends in a different level or your parents want you take a different course, the choice is always yours. You are going to be the one taking the class and doing all the work. when it come down to either honors or college prep. you should really listen to what the teachers say. They have seen all your work and know your grade the best. Sometimes though, during the school year if you are not feeling comfortable with the course you are in just go to the Guidance office and they may be able to help. here is a link to their Edline home page. http://www.edline.net/pages/Reading_HS/Guidance Hope this helped.

    -Did your teachers know best when they told you which course you should take? Is it smart to go off your own ideas? (Kaylee R. #85)
    Kaylee, When deciding for all honors, some honors, or college prep you really should listen to your teachers for most of your decision. They have graded all your work, know your strengths, weaknesses and have been with you all year. Now you don't have to 100% base your decision off of them but take into consideration their opinion. To go off your own ideas for course placement is smart. you know how much time you have for homework, how long it takes you, even the difficulty it takes so that really should be a huge portion of your overall decision. here is a course selection booklet with the courses and a small description. http://www.edline.net/files/_CBICq_/a9ec94fd9a8eb6983745a49013852ec4/CSB_2010-2011_3.1.pdf Hope this helped!

    I do very well in school and could get into all honors classes. Should I take all honors classes or should I take some strong college prep classes?( Chris P 87)
    I would do what I felt comfortable with, if you don't want to take honors than don't take honors. But being recommended for honors is a good thing, this means your teacher thinks you can handle it. If you wanted to try out the class at the honors level but then after a few weeks or so you feel that it is too difficult for you, you can always talk to your teacher and/or guidance counselor to move down a level. However, if you really don't feel comfortable with going into an honors class, your parents can override your teacher’s recommendation. RMHS has provided a course selection book on Edline to learn more about the courses you can take at the high school, graduation requirements, the differences between the class levels (AP, Honors, Strong College Prep, and College Prep) etc. If you go to http://www.edline.net/pages/Reading_HS and go to the side bar on the right that is labeled “Contents,” under that should be a link to the "2010-2011 Program of Studies." Once there, go to page 5 and this page should give you all the information on what’s required from each class level. In the "2010-2011 Program of Studies" there is also information on the differences in the class (for example Honors English as opposed to Strong CP English) for a specific subject. This starts on page 9 and goes through page 25.

    I heard that some people in the same grade are not in the same lunch as each other. So is there a group of kids from each grade at lunch at a time? (Jared D 87)
    Yes you will be in lunch with different grades. There are 3 different lunch periods each day. They are called first lunch, second lunch, and third lunch. First lunch is after third period and before fourth. Second lunch splits fourth period into 2 halves. Third lunch (my favorite) is after fourth period. I like 3rd lunch since you then only have 2 more periods in a day and then you go home. I had a study last period so I really only had one regular class before a study and home but that’s my opinion.

    Is lunch at a certain time in the day, everyday? Or does it change each day? (Andy J. 85)
    Andy, usually your lunch will change depending on what class you have D period. For example on days 1,3, and 6 have Advisory D period and I am assigned to first lunch and then I have a full period after lunch.On day four I also have first lunch and then I have three periods after lunch. On days 2,5, and 7 I have a study D period and so I have second lunch. Second lunch splits D period in half so you go to class for 28 minutes, then you go to lunch for 30 minutes and then you go back to class for another 28 minutes. After second lunch you have 2 full periods. Then there is third lunch, if you have third lunch that means that you go to your whole D period class and then you go to lunch after that class and so you only have two periods after lunch.Generally if you have Advisory, Wellness or an Elective D period then you will probaly have first lunch, if you have a study or math D period then you will probaly have second lunch, and if you have English, Science Social Studies or a language then you will have third lunch.I hope this helps you. Here is a link to the Guidence office"s page they can help you with any scheduling porblems or any questions about scheduling or anything esle at RMHS. http://www.edline.net/pages/Reading_HS/Guidance

    Sometimes the only way to get to place on time is to have a plan. Everyday I have to walk across the entire building and up from the first floor to the fourth. What I do is try to get all of my stuff ready before the bell and then I just walk quickly to the class. I don't really have time to stop at my locker and I only have time to talk to people if they are walking my way. Usually teachers are understanding of being late to class if you talk to them about your situation. Like I said before ususally if you talk to teacher about being late they will understand but, it all depends on the teacher. I've only seen someone get in trouble for being late a couple times and the teacher ususally just talks to them and asks why they were late. Also, you get off with a warning and if you do it again you might have to stay afterschool with them. Me and a lot of other students carry a backpack or bag around to everyclass with books and binders. I think it is easier that way because then you ahve everything right there and don't need to stop at your locker as much. Some teachers even let you keep the book in class. In social studies we leave the books in class and do our homework using..... https://www.pearsonsuccessnet.com/snpapp/login/login.jsp . We got a code and made passwords so we could acsess the book online. It made carrying books around a lot easier.

    If you have classes in way different areas of the school which we most likely will, how should you manage your time of getting to those classes, and should you take things for multiple classes at one time? Shannah C. 87
    My schedule this year looked really crazy at first because all of my classes are on opposite floors and opposite wings. Four minutes doesn't seem like a long time to get to class, but once you are sitting in your seat with a good two minutes left, you will realize it isn't that bad. It's definitely very stressful at first, but after the first week or two, you will get used to it.
