What's going on this week!

Last week I happened to catch Mrs. Harris and some of her students working on a video that will be shown to the RMS students this week. These students were having a great time and even though they aren't quite graduates yet, you could see the excitement that radiated from their middle school faces. Just putting on the graduation gown and cap, made them feel happy, proud, and excited. When I asked them if I could take a picture, they couldn't wait to smile for the camera!

As you all know, time goes fast and in a few short years, these 7th grade students will be seniors in high school. What you do each and every day impacts their future and is important to their success. Right now you are paving the road for students to be able to reach their goals and dreams and to achieve things they never thought possible. As I have said numerous times, you are driving the bus and your students are your passengers. Where you take them changes the course of their academic journey.

As you look out in your classroom this week, I encourage you to visualize all your students wearing the graduation cap and gown and focus on the importance of each and every minute you have with your students. Treat time as if it were money and be unwilling to waste even a second of valuable instructional time. Last but not least, let your students know that you believe in them and that one day very soon, they will walk across that stage and receive a diploma and you will be their biggest fan!

Have a fabulous week at RMS! Thank you for being a part of this wonderful journey we call education!
