Circle Tail Visit 

Big picture

Our furry friends from Circle Tail visited the Middle School on Friday, April 12th. All students had the opportunity to see the sweet canines and hear about Circle Tail's mission to provide service and hearing dogs for people with disabilities at no cost to the individual. Coming soon we will have information about an opportunity to donate to Circle Tail through a project supported by our Student Council. 

Interims 

Interims went home today, Friday, April 12th, with students that have a "D" or "F" in a class. Please remember you can easily check your child's grades through Progress Book. If you have any questions or would like to sign up for Progress Book, please contact the office-- 842-5151. 

AIR Testing Schedule 

April brings the time of year when we administer the AIR assessments at the middle school. We have found students do better when they test with their regular group and are asking you to move any well-doctor or dental appointments away from the AIR testing days if possible. For all testing days, student attitude is essential to their success. Please make sure students come well rested, and eat breakfast at home or cafeteria before school begins. Also, please make sure students have a charged Chromebook, and bring headphones.

 

Here is the AIR testing schedule:

 

  • Tuesday, April 16th Reading, Part 1 Grades 6, 7, and 8 
  • Wednesday, April 17th Reading, Part 2 Grades 6, 7, and 8 
  • Tuesday, April 23rd Math, Part 1 Grades 6, 7, and 8 
  • Wednesday, April 24th Math, Part 2 Grades 6, 7, and 8 
  • Thursday, April 25 Science Grade 8 


We appreciate your help in having your child in school on these days so we do not have to further interrupt their schedule with AIR make-up testing. Please let us know if you have any questions.

TECHNOLOGY UPDATE 

At RMS you are aware that we ask our students to keep their cell phones in their lockers throughout their school day. We are constantly striving to create a learning environment that is free from as many distractions as possible. The vast majority of our students do a good job following this school policy. However, we have recently noticed increased student distraction in "smart" watch technology (i.e. Apple watch) that students are wearing to school. We have found that students are using these devices to text their friends while in class, get onto social media sites, take pictures, or in other non-academic ways. We are asking that you please help us in having conversations with your child to reinforce that smartwatches also need to remain in a student's locker during their school day. 

 

As state achievement testing quickly approaches, these devices are also prohibited from being in a testing environment as students have access to searching for answers on the internet. At RMS we embrace the use of technology to increase student learning in the classroom, and we appreciate your help and support. 

My Energy Kit Challenge

My Energy Kit Challenge 

The 7th grade students at Reading Middle School will be participating in The Resource Force on May 6 from The National Theatre for Children (sponsored by Duke Energy). In addition to getting to watch this fun, fast-paced live comedy show about electricity and energy conservation, EVERYONE at our school can request a FREE energy efficiency kit and help your school earn cash rewards (and save energy), no matter the grade level!

 

We call this program the My Energy Kit Challenge, and our goal is to save 10 million kilowatt-hours of energy this school year across the country. Reading Middle School will earn $250 for every 100 kit requests, and the top three energy-saving schools will be entered to win grand prizes!  You can request your kit to help our schools online at www.MyEnergyKit.org or by phone at 1.855.386.9548.
