    Richland School District Schools Celebrate National School Breakfast Week
    Richland, February23, 2015 – Children who eat breakfast at school start the day ready to learn—reflected in higher test scores and better classroom behavior. However only half of the children who eat lunch at school also eat school breakfast, according to the Food Research and Action Council. To garner increased participation in the School Breakfast Program Richland School District schools will recognize National School Breakfast Week. Slated for March 2-6, 2015, National School Breakfast Week is a weeklong celebration aimed at increasing awareness of the School Breakfast Program among students and parents. . Because Richland School District Nutrition Services recognizes the importance of children starting the day with a nutritious breakfast, Richland School District in partnership with Sodexo, will be offering breakfast to all students at no charge during the week of March 2-6, 2015.  Make sure your student starts the day right, with a nutritious breakfast.  Breakfast is available at your school.   Serving times are listed on Nutrition Services Web page. 
    “Too many children are showing up at school hungry, and we know hungry children can’t learn,” said Denise Christensen.  “A healthy breakfast helps students focus in the classroom and perform better. That’s why we offer a healthy breakfast every morning in our schools.”

    Website Ranks Two Tri-Cities Schools in the top 100 of Washington State

    Two schools from the Tri-Cities made the top 100 list as one of the best public schools in Washington State. 

    According to the just released 2015 Niche rankings, Hanford High School came in at rank 33 and Southridge is ranked 76th.

    Niche Best Public High Schools ranks 14,431 high schools based on dozens of key statistics and 4.6 million opinions from 280,000 students and parents.

    The website gives each school it's own report card breaking down different aspects of the school.
    There are several categories that determine the grades such as academics, health and safety, culture and diversity, teaching staff, extra-curricular activities and sports and fitness.

  • HHS made the Washington Post’s “America’s Most Challenging High Schools 2014” list

    The Washington Post’s education columnist Jay Mathews has been ranking the most challenging schools in the country and the D.C. region for 16 years. There are more than 1,900 schools on the America’s Most Challenging High Schools 2014 list. Noted in the national and local tables is the percentage of students eligible for government meal subsidies — a common benchmark for poverty — and each school’s average SAT score.

     The top three national schools include American Indian Public Charter in Oakland, CA; Uplift Education North Hills Preparatory in Irving, TX; and Corbett Charter in Corbett, OR. The top DC area schools include: Saint Anselm's Abbey (P), Washington International School (P), and H-B Woodlawn.

     The new question added to the survey this year reflecting a change in school cultures was whether each school has an 11-person football team. Jay Mathews writes that research indicates that high school sports, including football, give students valuable time-management and leadership skills.
