Dear Parents and Guardians,
It is talent show week! RMS is full of incredibly talented students. Middle schoolers seem to naturally fight against the growing specialization of today’s society and are happy to show off their multiple talents. This week I enjoyed students in the advanced strings class perform a “Pop Up Mozart” in the lobby, listened to numerous 8th graders reciting To a Mouse by Robert Burns in hallways in preparation for class, witnessed incredible musical and gymnastic routines in talent show rehearsals, and marveled at the wonderful drawings on the Indian Travel Journals. More striking was the fact that I saw many students in more than one of these venues. I am forever refreshed by the optimism and belief of the students who believe (and show) that they can be good at everything. I try to emulate their willingness to take chances, to learn new things, and to believe in themselves. And, as always, I am thankful for the RMS community that fosters and embraces all our students.
We will get a chance tonight to witness these talents at the Winter Talent show. Starting at 7:00 in the auditorium, the show is open to family and friends. Admission $5. Please join us.
Next week is a short week, and we will start our homework free break on Tuesday. Enjoy a safe and fun weekend.
