RMS Notes and Information
-RMS Library Read it Forward: Next week we will be wrapping up Read it Forward, our school-wide reading promotion. Paperback books have been hidden around the school. Students who find them and read them get a prize and can pass the books on to their friends. So far, students have found and read 28 books. There are also still 20 books out with students, and some that remain hidden. On Friday the 28th, we will draw the grand prize winners.
-Elective Week May 19-May 26: The elective team is organizing a week of activities and events including an empty bowls dinner, Mega Concert, School Play, and more. We hope you will be able to join us for some or all of the fun! More details available soon.

-The 8th grade team typically works with a group of parents to help organize some aspects of class night. Last year, parents and staff implemented several improvements to the program and evening. We are hoping to identify a few interested 8th grade parents who can help us out with organization again this year. If you would be willing to lend a hand please contact Carla Balch firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you!
8th Grade Class Night: Weds, June 15.
8th Grade Class Trip: Thurs, June 16.
-7th Grade Poetry Night
, Thursday, May 12th, from 6-7pm.
Richmond Middle School lobby and library.
Poetry Night is a celebration for those students, parents, and friends who would like to share through speaking, reading, listening, and enjoying the depth and breadth of our students' poetic creativity and skill.
It is voluntary - students are not required to attend; students are welcome to attend, but are not required to perform.
For those who would like, Mr. McCarthy and Mrs. Wonsavage encourage you to come and read favorite poems written, favorite poems memorized, to listen to new poems and old.
There will be light treats and beverages in the lobby. Poem recitations and published poetry anthologies and chapbooks will be in the library of the Richmond Middle School.
This is the same evening as the rising 6th grade parent meeting in the auditorium - come for one, then stay and listen to a poem or two!
-Congratulations RMS community! This year the Pulsera Project raised over $2000 for the people of Nicaragua. This brings our grand total to more than $13,000 over the last 4 years! This is all possible due to the amazing generosity of our students and families. Thank you again for supporting this wonderful organization.
