RMS WINS Pre-Season Invitational Tournament

The RMS Boys defeated Northwest and Tanglewood on Saturday to advance to the championship game. On Monday night, Riverside defeated Mauldin in a thrilling Championship game. The Royals mounted a 4th quarter comeback and Truman Roper made the game-winning 3-pointer with 2 seconds left in the game to give the Royals the Championship victory. Riverside 8th grade student, Jordan Woodruff, was named the tournament MVP. GREAT JOB Coach Raymond!

Most of the items that have been on this list are finished; however, a few items still remain...

  • As a reminder: The building closes at 7:00 throughout the week and make sure to exit through the front doors when leaving. This gives the custodial staff time to finish cleaning, checking their areas, and check all of the exterior doors prior to leaving.
  • Don't forget to sign in, every morning, to Hall Pass. If the system is "down" please report that to Mr. Huff or Mrs. Woods. We have to have a "record" of attendance for everyone in the building daily. Remember, you can always sign-in from your computer in your room if the system in the Mail Room is down.
  • GCSDocs will be replacing all of the other locations of communicated information by mid-January.
  • Google Drive Training - Teachers can sign up for this training through the Portal. Selected programs and dates mentioned are as follows:

Google Apps for Education Series: 4/5/16 - 4/26/16, MT Anderson, 4:40- 6:30

Mentor Mondays, still accepting recommendations!

If you have students you want to recommend to have lunch with the administrative team on Mondays, feel free to submit the names of those students to your grade level administrator.
