Thank you parents for coming out to Texas Roadhouse night for RMS! All proceeds will go toward our technology purchases and student incentive programs!
Attendance matters at RMS! As all of you know the state requires 90% of your students to attend school 90% of the time. It is important your child is at school each and every day! You will receive an attendance letter at 3 days of absences, 5 days, then at 8 days. Please see the attached attendance policy. When absences fall below 90% & become excessive and are unexcused in nature, we meet with our administrative team here at RMS which includes both administrators, school counselor, school resource officer, juvenile officer, division of family services, along with parents and students to review absences and be placed on a plan to improve your child’s attendance rate towards reaching the 90 at 90 goal.
Tonight we have 240 students staying after school for our after school dodge ball – games – & fun time mixer! This is the largest turn out we have ever had in attendance for an after school activity like this! Thank you parents and students for your support. Thank you Council for hosting such a large event!
Next Wednesday, October 7th we will have all of our bus drivers for Ridgewood in to talk with the kid’s who ride their busses! This is our bus driver-student meet and greet. On Wednesday we will follow a shortened bell schedule for part of the day and the drivers will meet with the kids and teachers for about 30 min. that day for an activity. Welcome RMS Bus Drivers! It is so important for your child to build a relationship with his/her bus driver – kids are precious cargo and the driver is responsible for your child to and from school each and every day.
CLUBS Choice Fundraiser - All orders must be turned into Mrs. Graves in the office NO LATER THAN October 5th.
