What's going on this week!

We are looking forward to a busy week at Russellville Middle School. We kick off the week with a RMS football game tonight at Deshler. Come out and support of football team as they take on the Deshler tigers!

We also head into September this week. September is "Attendance Awareness Month" and we will be focusing on student attendance. Talking about attendance helps students focus on decisions that will impact their future success both in and out of the classroom. Please make sure to share the lessons that been planned for your mentoring time with your students and continue to encourage them about the importance of excellent school attendance.

We are very excited about our magazine/tumbler fundraiser. The proceeds of this fundraiser will be used to continue to upgrade and support technology in our building as well as purchase needed supplies for instruction and learning. I hope you will encourage students to work hard and sell as many items as possible to help our school.

One last thing....I ask you to read the quote above. As educators, we should never be satisfied with where we are but rather, look towards where we want to go. Although the road often seems long, difficult, and slow at times, if we are continuing to move towards the goal, we are making progress! We can't stay where we are and expect to reach our goals. Each day should be filled with intentional steps to help our students reach their academic and personal goals and we should be closer to reaching those goals today that we were yesterday!

Have a productive and fabulous week!
