During the first full week back to school at Russellville High School, was to once again introduce C2G.
C2G simply stands for “Commit to Graduate”. Each student is asked to make a verbal and signed commitment to graduate. Our school vision is that all of our students graduate “college and/or career ready”, and we strive to ensure that all of our decisions and actions reflect this goal/vision.
Each day will be devoted to a grade level. On Tuesday, August 9, 2016, the senior class of 2017, were asked to physically walk forward, shake either Mr. Blake’s or Mrs. McDaniel’s hand, and sign a “white” graduation robe as part of their commitment to graduate.
Soon they will be voting on the faculty member upon which they want to bestow the honor of wearing this “white-signed” robe during their graduation ceremony. The Russellville High School C2G (Commitment to Graduate) Initiative is a purposeful, focused effort to provide meaningful moments and support for students centered on graduating high school prepared and ready for their future.
The goals of the C2G Initiative include: Lower dropout rates; Encourage a sense of pride for self and school; Open the door to our students’ futures; Create a support system; Engage communities and business partners; Strategize to increase parent involvement in schools; Embrace and develop traditions with celebrations of commitment; and provide a framework for each grade level.
