What a great first three days of school! We enjoyed welcoming (and welcoming back) the students to RMS this week. Thank you for all you have done to make the start of school run smoothly. We look forward to many more great weeks.
This weekend marks our first homework free holiday of the year. RMS understands that time to play, explore, and enjoy family traditions is as vital to middle school learning as guided practice of academic skills. Because of this we like to implement various homework free holidays throughout the year. Teachers will not assign homework during these times, nor will they give tests on the day following.
A quick reminder. Please drop off and pick up students in the “cut-outs” along Lyme road. The teacher lot (north of school) is not for student drop-off as it causes traffic back ups and snarls, as well as dangerous traffic patterns. Thank you for your understanding.
Enjoy the long weekend!
Associate Principal’s Intro
This year I have transitioned from the classroom into the role of Associate Principal. As a long-time member of the RMS staff, the opportunity to work with our community in a different way is exciting. In addition to collaborating with Principal Boyle on day-to-day operations and long-term initiatives I will support student learning through scheduling and supporting the work of our staff.
