Week of September 5, 2022

Hello RMS Knights and Families

Our September Honor the Castle theme is "Making Meaningful Connections". This week’s mindset message for the week of September 5th states, "I can’t do that...ends a story. I can’t do that yet means…anything is possible”.

Castle Crew Community Building

It was great to welcome our Knights back to the Castle for our 22-23 school year. This past week our Knights became acclimated with the building, began connecting and building relationships with peers and staff, and participated in a variety of activities to build community and fully understand our PBIS expectations throughout the building. This past week set a strong foundation for the beginning of the year and the great things to come this year.

For our 2022-2023 school year, your child will receive a MacBook to support the instructional work done in our classrooms. Each student (Grades 7-12) will be given a MacBook and protective case to use throughout the school year.

In order for your student to use the device at home and at school, we are asking you to complete the Acceptable Use Student and Parent Agreement Form. If you completed this form link prior to the start of the 22-23 school year, you do not have to re-submit these forms.
