Happy Friday!

Greetings Wildcat Families!

We're looking forward to more awesome events next week, so please read through the many announcements, and mark your calendars! Save the date for the Vista Unified Festival of the Arts, Flyer which is coming next weekend. Come celebrate the spectacular visual and performing arts in Vista Unified on Saturday, October 19, 2019, from 10am-4pm on Vista Village. RMS arts, band, and choir will be well represented, so we hope to see you there! Schedule here!

Also on October 16, the district is hosting a forum on preventing adolescent vaping, marijuana, alcohol, and other drug use. The Protecting Adolescent Brain Development Forum is from 6-8 pm on October 16 at the Morris Vance Community Rooms. See the ATTACHED FLYER for more information.

Attendance: Attendance is key to student success! Please encourage your student to attend school every day and arrive on time. Remember, absences must be cleared within 72 hours (3 school days) after student returns to school. We also appreciate when you schedule dental/doctor appointments outside of the school day to avoid instructional interruptions.

Safety Reminder: Parents, please remind your students to use the crosswalk when arriving or leaving school. The heavy traffic makes it unsafe for students because drivers may not see them as they cross the street.

Our award-winning Wildcat yearbook staff is currently taking pre-orders for the 2019-2020 yearbook at 20% off the end-of-the-year price! Support our school by purchasing a yearbook through the front office, our RMS webstore, or www.jostens.com! Click here to see our flyer.
