Toys for Tots
Our Student Council has begun a toy drive to support our local Toys for Tots program this holiday season. We would love to be able to collect as many unwrapped toys as possible to support children in our area. Please consider bringing in an unwrapped toy to your child's homeroom teacher between now and December 18th. Each grade level homeroom donating the most toys will be provided with a celebration of appreciation. The Black Friday sales may be a great opportunity to pick up that special gift!
Congratulations to our 2015-2016 Emerging Teacher of the Year, Caitlin Young, and our 2015-2016 Teacher of the Year, Kaci Roper!! Mrs. Roper and Ms. Young go above and beyond each and every day for their students and we couldn’t be more proud of them!
Crossing Guard Appreciation Week
In honor of Crossing Guard Appreciation Week, Mrs. Heos delivered a Starbuck's coffee and pastry along with a few student letters of appreciation to our crossing guard, Mrs. Robinson. If you have the opportunity, please let Mrs. Robinson know how much you appreciate her and the work she is doing for our students. If your student has a spare moment this week to write her a letter of appreciation, Ms. Heos and Mrs. Hall would be happy to deliver that for them if they are unable to do that themselves.

Deadline to order spirit wear is Monday, November 30. Order forms may be turned in to front office or homeroom teachers. Please see the RMS PTSA website, the PTSA E-blast, or the RMS PTSA Facebook page for order forms, pricing, sizes, and colors. Thanks for supporting the RMS PTSA!
