What's going on this week!

As we begin a new semester in 2017 , we know we begin with a sense of urgency. After today, we only have 56 quality instructional days left before ACT Aspire testing....yikes! With last Friday being a snow day, we lost an instructional day, which means we have to struggle to find the time, over the next 56 days, to catch up from what was missed. As you have heard many times..."Time is a thief and it stops for no one!" Once it is gone, it is gone forever, so each second, minute, and hour of every day count and are important to the overall success of our students!


We are focusing on several small changes as we work towards implementing our RMS Action Plan. However, even though the changes may seem small, small changes make a big difference. The small changes that you are making to your lesson plans, classroom learning activities, instruction, and assessments are the steps in making a HUGE difference in the achievement of our students. It is these smaller changes that act ultimately make the largest impact and are the lever that result in a substantial change for the students at Russellville Middle School.


I am very excited to see these changes take place. I have had the opportunity to watch several of you as you work together as teams to plan and design learning activities. Your desire to commit yourselves to our ultimate goal of improving the academic success of all of our students is evident in the efforts you are putting into making these small, but powerful changes! Thank you for your hard your, your willingness to make these changes, and your desire to make Russellville Middle School the best in the state!


Have a great and powerful week!
