RMS Robotics is an after-school enrichment experience that follows the First Lego League (FLL) program. FLL captures the natural curiosity and creativity of our students while combining this curiosity with real-world issues, research, and teamwork activities. The goal is to put RMS students in a position of identifying and creating innovative solutions to big problems. Each year, approximately 50 RMS students participate in the 12-week challenge season. All teams compete at a qualifying event held at Dartmouth College in November. Some RMS teams advance to the NH State Championship each December.
Each week a group of students meet and have fun with Math. They do an hour of competition math and half hour of math games. On occasion, our RMS team competes against other schools- either online or in person. The group is a mix of serious competitors and students who are there to socialize and have fun with math.
Each year the RMS stage becomes Broadway in May for two evenings for the annual Spring play. The play involves approximately 30 students who have important roles both on and off stage. Rehearsals take place three days a week. The play is produced and directed by our theatre arts teacher, and design and technical support is provided by other members of the elective team.
The RMS Goose
The RMS Goose is our student newspaper, published by and for our students. The Goose publishes approximately four times per year, meeting regularly during snack to work on the latest publication. On their own time, students collect information, take photographs, conduct surveys, interview students and teachers, write articles, and design the layout(s).
Kendal Connection is a committee working to develop close connections between Kendal residents and RMS students. Residents and students correspond with each other through journals. They also compose poems on similar topics and join together to recite their poetry. Students have enjoyed assisting the residents with technology– teaching them about their iPhone and iPad features. The residents are also often entertained musically by RMS students.
Kendal residents visit RMS too... whether it be to help out in the library, attend a poetry recital, elective class, musical performance or art exhibit with student docents providing refreshments. Students love interacting with the residents of Kendal and they in turn enjoy the students.
Lunchtime Book Club
Books, Books, Books... Book Club is an informal group of both staff and students who meet during lunch on Wednesdays in the LMC. Together they discuss books that they are reading and also make book recommendations to others.
Folio is a showcase for stunning artwork and extraordinary writing by our students and staff compiled and printed in the Spring.
