The Knight Shift
The Knight Shift after-school homework club (designated Tuesdays and Thursdays from 3:05pm-4:00pm in the media center)
The Knight Shift -“The time period after a long day of work to organize, to prepare, and to be ready for success!”
We are fortunate to have members of our student leadership groups from RMS and FHS to assist students who attend the Knight Shift with their assignments and projects.
All Noble Knights are invited to attend the Knight Shift…If they have:
- Homework assignment(s) to complete- Individual tables area
- A group project needs to be worked on - Collaboration stations area
- A quiet location to read - Flexible seating area
Available dates from 3:05pm - 4:00pm in November
Tuesday, November 15th
Thursday, November 17th
Tuesday, November 29th
The Knight Shift will be located in the Media Center and is a time and place for students to come and spend an additional hour on getting their work done or silently reading. Students will have access to a quiet space, internet, devices, and resources that may assist them with their work.
This time is monitored by Mr. Julian or Mrs. Skladanowski. Upon arrival - students will sign-in and will record what they are working on.
Remember, this is not a time to play games on iPads/phones or to come and socialize without working (working on a project with group members is encouraged). Off task students will be removed and will be unable to attend for the remainder of the session.
Knights interested in staying after-school on those designated Tuesday(s) and Thursday(s) must be in the Media Center by 3:05pm and should plan on staying until 3:55pm. All students who stay after-school would need a ride home as late buses are not available.
Outside Food and Beverage Policy
Outside food delivery is a safety concern. We do not want to have strangers and people that we do not know coming to our buildings with delivery bags. It also is a workload issue for office personnel. Managing multiple food deliveries during lunchtime becomes an additional responsibility for our office staff.
The District works hard to provide a variety of healthy, good-tasting food in its cafeterias, and students are always free to bring their own lunch to school. We will continue to follow our past practice of making sure students receive lunch if they forget to bring one from home.
Build a Buddy Project in Quest
Our 7th grade knights in Quest classes are being reflective and illustrating characteristics of what it means to be a good friend.
Spreading the News about the Kiwanis Food Drive
Our RMS Student Council are collecting as many as possible non-perishable food items, canned goods, and boxed items for the Kiwanis Food drive. Our RMS StuCo Members have shared the news around RMS with posters in the hallways and through our daily announcements.
Prep for the Holiday Concert Performance
Our 7th and 8th Grade Band Members are working hard in preparation for our upcoming Holiday Concert Performances.
