Photography class wins March Attendance Madness Bracket
Randolph-Henry High School strives to recognize and reward good attendance. For the month of March, first period classes competed against one another in a March Attendance Madness Bracket. Teachers entered the stats for each class into a shared spreadsheet and at the end of the week, the class with the highest rate of attendance would move forward in the bracket. The teachers used passing grades as a tiebreaker in the event of a tie. After five rounds of competition, they declared Alyson Napier’s Commercial Photography class the winner.
