RMS Notes and Information

-Hello Richmond Middle School Community, In support of RMS’s 7th-grade community service projects “The Power of We,” Abby Pelletier, RN, and Health Office Assistant, Lynn McRae, RN, are looking to borrow a few “round knitting looms” such as the kind pictured. Additionally, if your household has left over yarns which you’re willing to donate to a worthy cause, please bring these items to the box which will be placed outside the RMS Health Office door.
Worthy cause? 7th-grade Students who sign up for “Hats for Babies and Diaper Drive” will knit hats for moms and preemies and donate them to DHMC’s neonatal intensive care unit (NICU). This group of students will also plan a preemie through size 6 diaper drive which will benefit the Women’s Health Resource Center.


Please label your loom sets for easy return. Thanks so much for your support!
