Red Friday!

Tomorrow is Red Friday in KC! Please feel free to dress your child in their favorite NFL clothing as the NFL season kicks off.

Skyward Account

Please remember to check your account in Skyward periodically. You can see what your child is eating each day in the cafeteria, any updated grades, and make payments to accounts. Please double check that your account does not have any fees that have accumulated from any of the past years.

Drop-Off and Pick Up Reminder

As a reminder, please utilize the circle drop off if you are not planning on escorting your child to the building. If you are using the parking area, please do not drop off your students. You will need to park and escort your child(ren) across the crosswalk to ensure their safety.

PTA BoxTops

Please help support all the great programs the PTA is able to provide to your student(s) by cutting and clipping boxtops! I've attached a collection page for your child should you want to utilize it.

Past Reminders

Community Clean-Up Sept. 8th!

This is a great opportunity for scout troops, church groups or others to get in some community service hours!

Reminder: MVP - My Volunteer Pal

We absolutely love our parent volunteers at RM. That said, the district has made a decision to make the MVP process as black and white as possible. If you would like to help out in the classroom at parties, go on field trips, or participate in book clubs, we need you to complete this training.


All information can be found at our district website:

https://www.smsd.org/families/volunteer-mvp


We encourage you to attend any of the MVP sessions throughout the district. Our building will hold a session on Sept.18th at 4p.


**As a reminder, 6th grade Tall Oaks volunteers must be MVP certified to attend this upcoming field trip. We definitely need volunteers, so please complete training immediately!

Skyward Sign-Off Forms

As a reminder, you must log in to Skyward and complete all forms, which includes the Acceptable Use for iPads. In order for the school to send iPads home with our 3rd-6th grade students, this must be completed. It also gives us direction on utilizing iPads for your child within the classroom. Should you have concerns or questions regarding iPad usage, please notify the teacher.


There is also an form for allowing the use of your child's picture in district social media as well as our yearbook.


Thank you for completing this step in your child's education.
