Hello parents and families! This is Mr. Sherman here at Rolesville Middle School. I apologize for not getting this out on Friday. I have just a couple of things this week.
1. Mrs. Morris, in partnership with the RMS PTA, is pleased to announce that NY Times best-selling author, Scott Westerfield, will be visiting RMS on Monday April 17th. He will be presenting to our 7th and 8th grade students as well as personally sign copies of his books for those students interested in purchasing. All of our students (including 6th graders) have the opportunity to purchase copies of Mr. Westerfield’s books and have them autographed during his visit. Details are coming next week with students on Tracks 1, 2, and 3. The deadline for students to turn in completed order forms with full payment is Friday April 7th.
2. Please note that due to a state deadline, we need to switch the order of testing for tracks 2, 3, and 4. Testing will still occur June 19th through June 23rd, with CTE tests and makeups the following week.
However, social studies for all grades will now be the first test on June 19th. On June 20th we will administer the Common Core Math One or Two for students in those courses.
June 21st will be science for all grades.
June 22nd will be reading for grades 6 and 8 and math for grade 7.
Finally, June 23rd will be math for grades 6 and 8 and reading for grade 7.
We wanted to let you know of this change in testing order as soon as we found out.
Again, the testing dates remain the same--just the order of tests is changing. Track 1 is not affected by this change.
Speaking of testing, please come in and register as a volunteer as soon as possible. We will need many proctors for testing, and all proctors must be registered as volunteers in Wake County Public Schools.
You may register at any school in Wake County, but you must re-register each year. So if you haven't registered yet, please come in and get registered. We appreciate all of your help with proctoring. When registering be sure that you select our school or it will not show up in our approved list.
Those are all of the announcements at this time. I hope everyone has a great week!
For Week of April 7th
This is a reminder for all students interesting in ordering copies of Scott Westerfield’s books in preparation for his visit on Monday the 17th. The deadline to turn in order forms and payment is this Friday the 7th. Details regarding Mr. Westerfield’s visit were sent home last week with students.
