PSSA testing is underway. I had the opporutnity to meet with all studnets and staff to discuss the importnace of PSSA and I encouraged the students to show off what they know! Additionally, studnets have been reminded about the importance of coming to school well-rested and having had a full breakfast. English/Language Arts PSSA testing will continue through Thursday of this week. Math PSSA is scheudled for April 25th, 26th and 27th. Eighth grade sciecne PSSA is scheudled on May 2nd and 3rd.You can find the entire PSSA testing schedule by visiting the RMS home page.
Please send any outstanding immunization reports or exemption letters to the nurse. As you may have heard, students will be excluded from CRSD on April 28, 2017, if we have not received the current necessary documents in the nurse’s office. If you have received letters and phone calls, please send this information to the nurse ASAP.
Also please be aware that the school dentist will be coming on April 17, 2017. All 7th grade students without a current dental exam on file will have a dental exam by the school dentist. If you received dental reminders from the nurse please return the form to the nurse ASAP.
RMS recently was invited to have students assist with the Bucks County Senior Expo. Several 7th and 8th grade students participated in the Expo by helping to set up the event as well as guide vendors and assist senior citizens. The senior expo had more than 400 senior citizens in attendance and the student representatives shined. Some students even had the opportunity to go on live radio and speak about this meaningful intergenerational experience. Kudos to the student representatives who represented themselves and RMS very well.
Thank you to CREF, CR Coalition for a Health Youth, CR North and Mr. Dan Griesbaum for Chris Herren’s return visit to Council Rock. Many RMS families were in the large audience as Chris spoke about his personal sturggles with addiction. Chris moved the audience with his personal message and challenges in hopes of “saving at least one person” who hears his story. Prior to Chris’ visit, students from CR North and Project Purple visited RMS to speak to our studnets about this powerful presentation. Student members of the RMS SADD club assisted with the visit from the high school students. See the story at the link below.
Recently, Mrs. Close and the PTO held a RMS PTO Bag Bingo. There were approximately 150 participants. The event was well attended and will serve RMS students well. Thank you to Mrs. Close and the participants for making this fun evening count for our students.
The April PTO meeting has been postponed. The amended meeting date and time will be posted on the PTO web page.
Community members are invited to drop off e-waste materials on April 22 between 9:00 am and 1:00 pm. at Council Rock High School South. Please see the link to the flyer. Thank you for thinking green!
