ESEA Report Released
Our school’s federal ESEA (Elementary and Secondary Education Act) accountability grade was released today. For 2013-14, Riverside Middle School achieved a grade of 95.6 (A). Click for Mrs. Malone's Letter to Parents or for more information click here. This was made possible with the hard work of our students, staff, and parents.
We are extremely proud of our students, faculty and staff here at Riverside Middle Schools as we were one of a very few schools in South Carolina to score the highest possible rating on the annual School Report Card.
We could not have achieved this result without our strong home to school connection. At RMS we believe that Great communities make great schools and great schools make great communities. We are privileged to serve such a great community.
We appreciate your help in spreading the word about the great things that are happening at RMS!
Complete RMS school achievement information can be found on the Achievement page.

Beta Club Holiday Giving 2014
Members of the RMS Beta Club adopted a family through the Salvation Army for Christmas. Betas bought toys, clothes, shoes, and stocking stuffers for the two children (an 8 year old boy and an 18 month of girl) and special stocking stuffers for mom and dad. The family was also given gift cards to buy groceries. Students met after school on 12/9 to wrap the gifts and write special messages to the family.

Stacy Hall! RMS Teacher of the Year!
Each of the 11 teachers nominated is so deserving. Each of them has their own way of making school a special place for students and for each other.
Mrs. Hall is a great example of someone who does anything she can each day to make sure every student, parent, and teacher has the best possible experience. From serving on SIC and coordinating the efforts of Mentor Greenville, to leading small-groups for students with study-skills deficits. She looks for any way she can contribute positively to a situation and then accomplishes things with a quiet grace that draws attention to the accomplishments of the group, not the individual. She is a true team player and is passionate about the students at RMS and the community. Not only does Stacy organize events on her own time in the summer that allow sixth graders to have a smooth transition to middle school, she is in constant contact with parents of at-risk students. She is also an advocate for students in the upper grades, as we prepare them to be more college and career-ready. She does all of this with a smile on her face and a warmth that lets everyone feel welcome and valued in her presence.
As her nominator wrote:
"Stacy is involved in so many activities that benefit the students at Riverside--involvement in SIC, the transition program for feeder schools, Coffee with Counselors, the RMS food bank for needy students, the mentor program, and on and on. Above all, she cares about our students, and her concern for their well-being is apparent in her work. She is a shining example of teaching through example. I admire her so very much!"
Again, congratulations to Stacy and to all of our nominees on making a significant impact on students!
