RMS Notes and Information
-Walk to School Day
On Wednesday, May 4th, we will take part in National Walk/ Bike to School Day. A big THANK YOU to Lou's Bakery for once again sponsoring us and offering donut/ cruller coupons to all who participate! Busses will stop at the Dartmouth Rugby Field for students who need to take the bus, but still want to participate, they can get off there. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with questions. Here are some pedestrian safety rules to follow:
- Walk together and share the sidewalk/road by walking no more than two by two
- Stop at road crossings and wait for everyone so we can cross together and not hold up traffic
- Walk facing traffic when there isn't a sidewalk
- When using the new Multi Use Path along route 10, please walk/ride on the right hand side, pass on the left, and make sure to alert other pedestrians when you are passing them
- Please use caution on Rip Road as there is no sidewalk
-Come join us for the Spring Talent Show
Next Friday we will be presenting our annual Spring Talent Show. This is always a highlight of the end of the year. This year's event will include classical performances by cellist Justin Zhou, and pianists Stephan Wang, Alice Garner and Sophie Usherwood as well as others. Mr Eastman has promised that he is going to recite two of his favorite poems.
Friday, May 6th 7:00-9:00 in the RMS Auditorium $5.00 per person

-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!
