A Message from Principal Norris-Buck

We announced last week to our students that we are holding a competition for our 2020-2021 Yearbook cover! The winner of this competition will have their artwork displayed as the official cover for RQMS. We are looking for any original artwork that shows the Quist Way. Please email your entry to Mrs. Gerber at tgerber@sd27j.net by November 20th. Also, we just opened up the preorder form for yearbooks this year. Please follow this link to Josten’s to order yours today.

On Monday, a survey was sent out to our Quist families regarding learning mode changes for second semester. Currently, we have a wait list for students who want to move to fully remote learning in semester one. However, in looking toward second semester, we will be able to reorganize and accommodate what our Quist families need. We will hold a Q&A session on Tuesday, November 17th at 6pm to address any questions our families may have as we prepare for the next term. Please use the Zoom link listed below to join.

Facebook is one way in which schools are able to get information out easily about upcoming events and information that is important to the Quist community. If you have Facebook, please be sure to visit and like Our Page to get notifications and stay up to date!

Picture retakes for 7th grade students will take place on Wednesday, November 11th. If your student is an A Day Student (Tues/Thurs), please use this link to sign up to come before school starts. B Day Students (Wed/Fri) will take retakes during school hours. If your student missed original picture day or retakes this week, please reach out to the office and we will determine the best plan for retakes for your student. Thank you for your understanding and flexibility during this time.

Trina Norris-Buck, Ed.S.
