Hello RMS students, families and community members!
Happy Month of May RMS Families!
There’s a lot that has transpired in the last month...COVID, vaccines, the Chauvin trial and verdict, other terrible events that directly affected students and staff, changing weather, plus allergy and tax season to name a few.
These are definitely some difficult and historic times we are witnessing. The stress can cause us to feel weary and lose focus. That’s totally normal and ok, so let’s normalize being stressed and anxious about all of this. Don’t give up... pause if you need to, but don’t give up! You have permission to PRESS PAUSE and EXHALE. HUG YOUR CHILDREN. SPEND TIME AS A FAMILY IN HONEST CONVERSATION. REACH OUT FOR HELP.
Our students are working hard in person and remotely, and our staff are using every opportunity to have open communication with RMS families. We are here for you and one another, as we know we all have changed with these new experiences. Let us know how we can help. There are also resources and for parents and caregivers on our school and district websites. Be safe, careful and don’t forget to learn something new!
