RMS Staff wishing our 6th and 7th grade students a safe and relaxing summer vacation at dismissal.

+Principal’s Corner

Dear Parents/Guardians,

Thank you for all of your support this year. We have greatly enjoyed learning with your children and once again are in awe of all they have accomplished. We are truly fortunate to work with them, and with you. We hope that you and your children have a wonderful and safe summer vacation. We look forward to hearing about your adventures in the fall.

We will put information out periodically over the summer via email, paper mail, and on the web site. In addition, the office will usually be open on TuesdayWednesday, and Thursday from 9a to 1p. Appointments are also available at other times. We recommend calling first to ensure someone will be here to help you.

Finally, a personal thank you to all of you. It has been my pleasure to be the principal of the Frances C. Richmond Middle School this year. I'm looking forward to another great year in 15-16.

Michael Lepene
