Our Newest Panther!!

Oakley is our Therapy Dog in training. He is now about 4 months old and has an amazing owner, Coach Steele. Oakley already has a way about himself bringing joy, happiness, and settling anxious students. We are grateful to have this opportunity of raising a therapy dog at RMS. Thanks to Coach Steele for taking on this endeavor.

We want your OLD Phones!

The school is in need of old phones that are within 5 years of age. Our Invention, Innovation & Technological Systems classes will benefit greatly from these devices and help recycle the materials. A drop box is located in the counseling office or may be left at the front office. Thank you in advance for your help.
