Principal's Post

Dear Parents and Guardians,

Please take time this weekend to look at your child's Canvas course since we are now halfway through Quarter 1! We want each and every student to be successful, so let us know if extra support is needed based on your observations.

Our School Improvement Council meeting will be via zoom on Tuesday at 6:00pm. Please plan to join us. We need a chairperson and co-chair!

We will continue selling commemorative t-shirts to honor RRMS' 50-year milestone. Later this month we will also have a celebration during lunch. See the flyer below for specifics.

Kona Ice will be on campus this Friday!

Warm Regards,

Heather Andrus
