Star Polisher – Nathan Nielsen

Who would you like to thank for being a star polisher?

“Mr. Nielsen,” writes Jacob Robinson, 11th grader at R.A. Long.

How did this person make a difference in your life?

Jacob says, “He actually took his time to explain anything I didn’t understand and was very friendly and laid back.”

As part of our district’s focus on student connectedness, we shared part of a poem called “The Star Polisher” with our middle school students and invited them to consider how Longview Public Schools staff have made a difference to them. Read about more of our stars and star polishers here.

RAL’s Lacey Griffiths wins State Assistant Principal of the Year!

The Association of Washington State Principals (AWSP) named RAL’s Lacey Griffiths Washington State Assistant Principal of the year! This is a statewide award, which is just amazing.

The award winners go through a multi-level selection process. Each nominee gets consideration versus other candidates in their geographic region. Some move on for further consideration at the

RAL Asst. Principal Lacey Griffiths

state level. The final judging included representatives visiting R.A. Long to interview co-workers and students to understand Lacey’s impact on student learning.

R.A. Long Principal Rich Reeves talked about Lacey’s ability to reach students and affect positive outcomes. “When we talk about the culture of the school, it starts with relationships, every single time. Lacey has been able to foster those relationships with staff, kids and paraeducators,” Reeves said.

Reeves also commented about Griffith’s leadership, as her efforts have played a huge role in rising graduation rates. In 2013 68 percent of students graduated from R.A. Long. In 2017-18 the RAL graduation rate reached 96 percent.

Nick Sarysz, a senior at RAL, said about Griffiths, “Ms. Griffiths has a positive impact on the school. She makes it clear that every individual matters to her.”

Griffiths will be in the running for National Assistant Principal of the Year, which will be announced by the National Association of Secondary School Principals in April.

Congratulations Lacey!
