Empowering Leaders to Grow and Serve
We are starting to see an increase in illness. Here are a few good tips to help keep everyone healthy:
  •  A good night's sleep. 
  • Plenty of water.
  • Washing hands often. 
  • Eating a diet with rich in fruits and vegetables. 
Thank you for all you do to help on the home front.

Our Veterans' Day Assembly is this coming Monday, 11/11, at 9:15am at RMS. In preparation, we would like you to submit pictures, with captions, of current active duty military members and veterans that you have in your family so we can honor them. During the assembly, we will show a video slideshow with provided images and captions. Please submit to Mrs. Groves at so your family member can be recognized in the slideshow. Please submit your pictures with captions by Friday, November 8th.
Winter Student Athletes

*A mandatory meeting will be required for all winter student athletes and parents on Thursday, November 14th from 5:30-7:00 p.m. in the RMS auditorium.
RTI Update
We are currently in our second Math RTI cycle. We will begin our third ELA cycle on November 19. Teachers are doing a great job identifying the best instructional strategies to use to meet student needs. Students who are not in need of intervention instruction are taking ownership in meeting their needs by choosing the content/teacher they need to work with the most. At RMS, during RTI we have an all hands on deck approach as WE work toward student success.
RMS 2019-20 Building School Improvement Plan (BSIP)

The RMS BSIP concentrates on four main areas: Literacy, Numeracy, Attendance and Discipline. The 2019-20 RMS BSIP was developed by the RMS Leadership Team with student and staff input.
