RMS Basketball Tryouts

Basketball tryouts for boys and girls teams will begin on Monday, Nov. 3.  In order to tryout, each student must have turned in a physical and parent permission form along with $10 insurance.  If a student played a fall sport for a high school they must still turn in a physical and parent permission form to the middle school.  Forms are located at under the athletic forms tab.  Boys turn in forms to Coach Raymond.  Girls turn in forms to Coach Young or Coach Eikenberry.

Principal for the day

Principal for the DayMr. Simon Hong, Senior Vice President from TD Bank, shadowed Principal Kate Malone as a part of “Principal for a Day.”  Local business leaders are shadowing school principals to learn more about day-to-day operations of leading a school.  Mr. Hong spoke to two 8th grade financial literacy classes, attended lunches, and enjoyed talking to RMS students.  We are so excited to build relationships with community leaders.
