Navigating the River
Back to School Edition - Summer 2021
Welcome back to The River!
Open House this year will be focused on an opportunity for our teachers and staff to connect with our families, so please join us for an opportunity to see our campus and say hello. Our goal for Open House is that your child be comfortable coming to school on the first day, prepared with the information they need. We want all our students to be excited to walk into RMS on August 5th!

Meet and Greet Information - Monday, August 2, 2021
Back to School Meet and Greet Information
The goal for our Back to School Meet and Greet is that your child is comfortable coming to school on the first day knowing who their teachers are and where their classrooms are located. Parents are welcome!
With this in mind, we will not be selling items or distributing paperwork during our Open House this year. Instead, our focus will be on building a connection with students and families by greeting one another, connecting names and faces. Opportunities for lengthier conferences will be made available on other dates, as needed.
RMS Meet and Greet (Open House) Times for all 6th, 7th, and 8th Grade Families
9:00-10:30 (Families with the last name A-F)
11:00-12:30 (Families with the last name G-L)

When you arrive for the RMS Meet and Greet, you will receive a map of the school with a "Things to Do" checklist on the back. Our PTSO will also be here to welcome you and provide the opportunity to learn more about all that they do to make Riverwatch a wonderful place to learn. Please take a moment to join our PTSO while visiting.
If you have any questions before attending the Meet and Greet, please enter those HERE and we will respond as soon as possible.
FYI: The front parking area may become crowded during this time. If you need to find additional space to park, please utilize the bus parking area near the gym entrance or the Settles Bridge parking areas. **Please do not park along the entrance road as this makes entry and exiting the RMS campus difficult.
