Dear RMS Community:
Some highlights from the past week:
Josie Dennis in the fashion show that closed the clothing unit in Spanish class. Josie is resplendent in her ensemble, topped by un gorro multicolor. Thanks to Ms. Swartz for the photo
Below is a visual representation of the relationship between George and Lenny from Of Mice and Men as seen in Ms. Haines’s class. Small, dented George pouring friendship into large, leaky, and damaged Lenny. Just one of many amazing insights into the classic book I witnessed this week. Our students are so insightful and fun.
The ball is ready to drop! Our school day will end with a celebration of 2019 and a look forward to 2020. Thanks to Mr. Lacrosse, the leadership class, and Ms. Ellis’ art class for planning and provisioning our first annual “ball drop” celebration. Wish us luck cleaning up the confetti!
The new decade will bring many events, including: a 7th grade parent check in, parent reading groups, parent socials, 8th grade planning for High School, the RMS Camp Fair, 3rd Quarter Arena Scheduling, the Renaissance Festival, field trips, Theatre performances, and countless other opportunities to build community.
Please have a wonderful homework free holiday break. Remember fondly the highlights of 2019 (there were many for me and my family), and look forward to the goodness that 2020 will bring. We will miss you, and look forward to reconnecting in the new year. Thank you for a great 2019.
