Dear RMS Families-


I hope everyone has had a great week and will have a great weekend!


1. Next Wednesday and Thursday Track 1 and 2 students will be taking a mid-year benchmark for reading and math.  This will provide teachers with valuable information about your child’s progress as we move into second semester.  Please note, this benchmark will not be factored into your child’s grade.  Track 3 and 4 will take their benchmarks on February 19th and 20th.


2. Spring sport registration has begun.  To register, go to the school's website and click on Athletics.  At the top of the athletic page there is a tab for "Spring Registration", fill out the google doc and submit.  There is information for each tryout located beneath the google doc.  All students must have a current physical (within the last calendar year) and athletic participation form on file.


Baseball, Softball and Boys Soccer will begin Wednesday, February 12th.  Track will begin the week after.  Look at the track information sheet for a schedule of events run on particular days.


3. Congratulations to our basketball teams on their victories this week against Wendell and River Bend.  Both teams are now 10-0 on the season.  Our next home game is Monday February 3rd.


4. Spring pictures for Tracks 1, 2, and 4 are on February 14th.  



Information From the PTA:


1. The Spirit Rock is available to rent! Check out the details at:     


2. School can be hard. Even harder for those in low income families, in part because of lack of access to personal hygiene items. Kids with a deficiency in hygiene face consequences – like damaged self-esteem, bullying and missed school.   YOU can help change that by donating to our Super Bowl of Caring Personal Hygiene Drive! Students can drop off personal hygiene items in the front lobby every school day from 7:45am-8:15am.  


3. Join us for the January meeting on 1/27 @ 6pm in the Media Center.


4. The book fair is coming! The book fair will run from 7:45 to 3:00 from Wed. 2/12 to Wed 2/19 and will be open during ramp up on Thurs. 2/20. We are seeking volunteers to help:
