Welcome Back

We hope you are enjoying your summer break. Before long it will be time to come back to school! The RMA faculty and staff have been hard at work planning the 2016-2017 school year. We look forward to beginning another year of academic achievement and success.

The first day of school will be our annual “Open House” on Wednesday, August 10. The schedule is as follows:

Student’s last names beginning A – G 8:00 am – 9:45 am

Student’s last names beginning H – Q 10:00 am – 11:45 am

Student’s last names beginning R – Z 1:00 pm – 2:45 pm

All families should report to the High School Gym at the opening time, as listed above, to attend a brief orientation. If you are not able to attend your assigned time, simply choose one of the other times that best fit your schedule. After the meeting in the gym, students and parents will have time to meet classroom teachers, sign up for bus routes, and join our PTT organization.
