Wow, November is going fast! We have one full week before our Thanksgiving holiday, and it will be a full week. Join us Tuesday for our Choral concert, and plan to come back on Friday for the Fall talent show. Rehearsals for both are in full swing, and the talent is spectacular.
Even in this short week I have witnessed many of the things that make RMS a special place. A teacher and student collaborating on an independent project outside the scope of a class, teachers covering for each other as the first cold of the winter descended upon us, students stopping by the front office to sing happy birthday, and numerous acts of kindness student to student. Have a wonderful weekend, and stay warm.
This coming Tuesday, November 19th, the 7th and 8th Grade Choruses will present their Fall Concert. The show starts at 7:00 PM in the auditorium. Performers should meet in the chorus room at 6:30 PM for warm-ups. Concert Dress is All Black with a Splash of Color. If you have any questions, please email joshhall@
