Greetings from the RMS Counseling office!
November is a month to reflect on the things in our lives we are grateful for. The RMS counselors appreciate each of our students and their unique personalities. We are fortunate to have staff and administrators who look out for our students. We are thankful for the connections we make with parents as we support their children during the challenges of middle school. We hope that throughout the month of November and all of the year our students and families will find those small things to celebrate and experience a sense of gratitude each day.
*End of Trimester: Friday, November 11th concludes our first trimester. Over the next week, have your child show you their grades on PowerSchool. If you have specific questions, please contact the classroom teacher directly.
*Schedule Changes: As we move into our second trimester, student schedules will change due to new electives, addition of support classes, or to balance class sizes. New schedules will be available in Powerschool Friday November 11th. Please be sure to have your child check Powerschool over that weekend so he or she will know what to expect on the first day of the new trimester.
