Principal's Post

Dear Parents and Guardians,

We hosted our first School Improvement Council meeting on Tuesday; however, we still need to fill two positions before October 15th. If you are interested in being on our SIC as a co-chair or parent representative please complete the Google Form below. For more information on what the School Improvement Council does visit https://sic.sc.gov/.

Also below is a great article on building self-esteem and confidence in middle school children. A few comments from picture day prompted adding this to the Newsletter. We consistently talk about kindness, empathy, and positive self-talk on campus, but it is important children hear it at home as well. I have been an educator for 26 years, but it is different when you are the parent. I wanted to share the resource I use just in case anyone else needs assistance. Being a principal is a tough job, but being a parent is tougher! We have to support one another.

Today we were finally able to have our club day. Students chose their top three from a list of over 30 different clubs ranging from Student Ambassadors to Gardening. There are a few pictures below from today.

Have a wonderful weekend Raider Nation!

Warm Regards,

Heather Andrus

Counselor's Corner

Guidance Counselors

RRMS is fortunate to have three competent and caring counselors.

Ms. McNeal will serve as counselor for all students in the 6th Grade.

Mrs. Cunningham will serve as counselor for all students in the 7th Grade.

Ms. Atkinson will serve as counselor for all students in the 8th Grade.

Guidance Department Wish List

When students look good, they feel good. When they feel good, they perform well in their classrooms. Please consider purchasing a quarter-zip pullover for our students for the fall and winter season. We need all sizes. If you see some anywhere cheaper, we will gladly accept those as well. Thank you all for your consideration in donating to our guidance department.
