Dear RMS Families-

 

I hope everyone has had a great week!  Here are the RMS updates and information for this week.

 

  1. As we are getting closer to the holiday, we are seeing an increase in students struggling to follow school expectations. I have made announcements in the mornings reminding students of these expectations.  We have also met with specific teams to discuss concerns.  Please help us end first semester next week on a positive note by encouraging your child to make good decisions here at school.  We appreciate your help with this.

 

  1. Congratulations to our dance students who had an excellent performance last evening. Kudos to Ms. Harrison for her excellent work and preparing the students.

 

  1. Track 4 Students will have the opportunity to visit Rolesville High School for Elective Preview Day on Thursday, February 13th.  Students will have the opportunity to learn more about the Career- Technical Education programs/ electives offered to 9th Teachers and counselors from RHS will speak with students about course opportunities for freshmen. CTE courses are pretty much the same no matter what high school your student will attend, so all students are encouraged to attend the trip. All forms are due by Friday, December 20.  Please contact Ms. Goshay with any questions.

 

  1. Congratulations to our basketball teams who defeated Heritage and Wendell this week. Both teams move to 4-0 on the season.  Next week, they will travel to take on River Bend on Monday.  There is no home game next week.
