Welcome to 2nd semester! It’s hard to believe we are already halfway through the school year. Progress reports will be delivered on Thursday, January 8th. Lunch tutoring will still take place Tuesday-Friday, with required attendance for all students that are ineligible during weekly grade checks. In addition, the multiple staff members that devoted hours outside of their contract time first semester with after school tutoring will continue to do so until the end of the semester. We continue to believe that working together for the betterment of all our students will provide a foundation to student learning and success, especially for the required standardized testing that will take place this spring. Spring Schedule for RJMS After School Remediation dates include: January 6, 8, 13, 15, 20, 22, 27, 29. February= 3, 5, 10, 17, 19, 24, 26. March= 3, 5, 10, 12, 24, 26. Math remediation will continue to meet on Tuesdays in Room #4 with Mrs. Price. Ms. Hale will continue reading remediation on Thursdays in Room #16 and Mrs. Underwood will offer tutoring in any subject in Room #19. The time of remediation will remain 3:05-4:10. Please continue to utilize the transportation provided for students that live within city limits and continue to make other arrangements for a prompt pickup at the ending time for all other students.
Student Council President Jules Callaham and her fellow Student Council members, under the direction of sponsor Kelly Marsaln, are anxiously waiting hosting the first RJMS “Spirit Week.” This will take place the week of January 26th-30th. On the 29th a Pep Rally will take place for our middle school students. Students can keep up to date on the different days that will be assigned by contacting a Student Council member.
We encourage you to come in for a visit, check-into the office and assist us by complying with our updated visitor procedure. While you are in, say hi to Mrs. Shelbi Golden. Mrs. Golden has been a welcomed addition to our office staff and will be assisting in the main office prior to teaching in the classroom. We also have implemented new confidential student sign in/sign out systems that we appreciate you working with us as we continue to focus on safety and confidentiality for our students. We’d also love to have a student aide give you a tour of some of our student artwork and projects proudly displayed in the halls. As always we encourage all RJMS stakeholders to be part of the educational success of our students.
Let’s end this year on a positive note and continue the success we have in the fall. Please continue to call and update the office of any new addresses or cell phone numbers so we can contact you in case of emergency.
