RMS Knightly News

Week of September 13, 2021

Hello RMS Knights and Families

Our September's Honor the Castle theme is "Making Meaningful Connections". Making meaningful connections is all about the "Why"...fostering an environment where our Richards Middle School community is being safe, respectful and responsible around the building.

This week’s mindset message for the week of September 13th states that “The greatness of a community is most accurately measured by the compassionate actions of its members.” See video at link here-

Mindset Monday Message for September 13th

Great to welcome our Knights to the 21-22 school year and participate with them in community building activities throughout our opening week.

IMPORTANT - Emergency Verification Forms

Your student should have brought home an Emergency Verification Form last week unless you already completed it at orientation. If your student still needs to bring this home, please have them stop by the Main Office to pick one up.

If it has not been returned, please have your student return the signed form to our Main Office with any corrections on Monday, September 13.

These forms are very important to insure we have accurate information for emergency contacts and for building/district communications.

Information about our RMS Meet the Teacher Night- Open House

Dear Richards, Middle School families,

You are cordially invited to attend the Richards Middle School Meet the Teacher-Open House on Thursday, September 16th (6:00PM –8:00PM). This is a parent only event. This is an opportunity to meet your Knights’ teachers while seeing their classrooms. With our Knights having seven classes on their schedule, we encourage our families to only spend about 7 minutes at each classroom you visit during our Open House. We will have assistance with directions around the building to help you locate your Knights’ classroom teachers.

Before attending our open house, you can access your Knight’s schedule on PowerSchool Unified Classroom or utilize the paper copy that was shared with your student during our 1st week of school. If necessary, a paper copy can be printed in either our main office or attendance on the 16th.

Tuesday, September 14th, we will share additional communication from our teachers that will introduce themselves to our families, the curriculum they cover, students’ expectations and materials needed for your class, grading expectations and how to contact them and how our students should ask for help when needed. We encourage our families to view their knights' teachers video before attending open house.

We will also hold parent informational sessions about utilizing the Blackboard, PowerSchool and other tools leveraged to support our students. These sessions will take place in our cafeteria at 6:00pm-6:30pm and again at 6:45pm-7:15pm.

Starting at 7:35pm-8:00pm, we will be hosting a voluntary informational VAPING presentation in the RMS gym for any interested parent.

We look forward to seeing our RMS families this Thursday, September, 16th starting at 6:00pm at Richards Middle School. Parents should enter through Door #1 (Main Entrance to RMS) to start our open house.
