FEBRUARY UPDATE
Updated:February 8, 2017


COuncil rock education week

Council Rock Education Week was a slam dunk! On behalf of the RMS students and staff, I would like to thank everyone who visited during CR Education Week. Thank you for making time to celebrate RMS with the students and for attending the parent workshops. It is always extra special when students have the opportunity to shine just a little brighter in front of their families.


NATIONAL ALLIANCE ON MENTAL HEALTH (NAMI)

During the month of February, 8th grade students will receive a 50 minute mental health awareness program called Ending the Silence. The program will be delivered during health classes on February 14th and 15th. This program is designed to provide students with the unique opportunity to learn about metal health as well as dispelling myths. The trained course presenters will share observations, strategies and success stories as well as providing a forum for student questions. A detailed description of the program is attached and you can also follow the links below.Please feel free to direct program questions to Ms. Meghan Bradley, school counselor, at mbradley@crsd.org.

CONGRATULATIONS

Many RMS students do amazing work beyond the classroom and we could fill each monthly letter with examples of meaningful and in some cases, life-changing work RMS students do on a routine basis. Recently, Zoya took it upon herself to reach out to CHOP. She collected books, employed the RMS Student Council and sent dozens of new and gently used books to sick children at CHOP. Congratulations and thank you to Zoya, CHOP, and the RMS Student Council for a job well-done.


PROGRAM PLANNING / GUIDANCE COUNSELOR MEETINGS

School counselors are now meeting with students individually to review and discuss their course recommendations for 9th grade. Please be aware that after your daughter/son meets with his/her counselor, a course recommendation sheet will be sent home for your signature. If you have questions, please feel free to reach out to your student’s guidance counselor.


HIGH SCHOOL LIBRARY MEETINGS

Both CR North and CR South offer evening library hours. The libraries are open to middle school students as well as the public. The library department has asked to have the following reminders shared with middle school families:

  1. Middle school students must be accompanied by an adult and that adult must stay with them forthe duration of their visit to the high school library during eveninghours.
  2. Middle school students should bring their class materials as these class resources are not available atthe highschool.

PTO

Please note, the February PTO meeting has been cancelled. Additionally, thank you to Mrs. Close and the RMS PTO for providing the parent luncheon during the CR Education Week parent workshop.
