OCTOBER 2021

  • RMS Families-

    Tik Tok:

    I am happy to report that our students have been following the Royal Way expectations and the tik tok challenges have paused. Thank you for any conversations you have had at home to support the expectations, we appreciate it. 

    We still need your help to ensure students understand that cell phones and electronic devices should NOT be used in restrooms or locker rooms for privacy reasons, and to encourage positive choices with social media. We continue to educate our students at school, but need your help. 

    Positive Behavior Interventions Supports: 

    Staff are busy recognizing positive behavior by our students. If you are able to donate $5 gift cards to local businesses for our weekly student drawings, please drop those off at the reception office. 

    Conferences: 

    We are fine tuning details for conferences and will share these with you soon. 

    Thank you for sharing your students with us!

    Dr. Nicole Rittenour 
    Principal 

     


    THANK YOU RMS Family!

    At the end of the 2020-2021 school year, following a successful "Be the Key" fundraising effort, Rogers Middle School was able to complete its purchase of a beautiful grand piano. We are grateful to our community members for supporting music at Rogers Middle School!

    This instrument is 5' 5" in length, and serves as the primary teaching tool for all choral ensembles at RMS. Its size allows for optimal placement at the front of the rehearsal room. The sound produced by the piano is of a most fine quality and allows students to hear pureness of tone, thus enhancing ear training efforts throughout a student's time in the middle school music program.

    Although Mr. Parr is the primary player of RMS' grand piano, several choral students have already been given the opportunity to perform for their class. We will continue to explore options for student use of the instrument as well.

    Ultimately, we continue to work towards ways in which all students at RMS will benefit from our possession of this professional quality instrument!
