Here's Mr. Petsch's Weekly Core Values report.

It’s Motivational Monday at RMS and throughout the week, students and staff are nominated for demonstrating excellence. This week, we are recognizing the pillars of our National Junior Honor Society (NJHS).

Scholarship: Our seventh-grade English staff, Ms Braga and Ms French, would like to recognize the following students: Lillie Emmett, Katie Patalano and Nazarae Phillip. These girls led a Victorian-themed party in class which highlighted both that era and the works of Charles Dickens. These students dressed in costume, made Victorian home-made foods (being mindful of gluten and other food allergies in their class) and led a presentation in front of their peers. It is no surprise that all three of these students are achieving the highest honors and all represent our core value of Scholarship to the “Victorian Tea!”

Leadership: Every Friday is “Fitness Friday” at RMS and PE teacher, Mr. Kirkutis, nominated 6th grader, Isabela Silva, for demonstrating leadership in the gymnasium. Isabela was mindful of her heart rate as she rotated through the various fitness stations. She also was instrumental in helping other students who were having difficulty calculating their own heart rates.

Character: Chivalry is not dead at RMS! Last Tuesday, the girl’s basketball team was hosting Bain Middle School. During the contest, one of Bain’s players went out to the filtered-water fountain to fill up her bottle. At the same time, several of the RMS wrestlers were also there doing the same thing. Mr. Perry noticed that 8th grader, Cameron Carreiro, stepped up and stopped the wrestlers from getting a drink so the girl from Bain could go first. He was mindful that she needed to get back into the gym, but was also being a gentleman and a good ambassador for our school to our guests.

Citizenship: Angelo Saves the Day! Ms. Sunday reported that her son’s new, expensive earbuds accidentally fell down the sewer while he was playing outside of his house. He couldn’t reach them. Seventh-grader, Angelo Rodrigues, happened to be passing by and noticed what had happened. He immediately went home and came back a few minutes later with a long claw. Similar to playing the game “Operation,” Angelo carefully grabbed the earbuds and returned them undamaged to Ms Sunday’s son, Christopher!

Service: Over the past few months, the students and staff of RMS have donated their time, items and money to various needs and causes within our community. This past week, however, a few students are thinking more globally. Eighth-graders Zach Shaker, Darius Vieira and William Seng are organizing a fundraiser at school to raise awareness and support for the devastating wildfires that are ravaging through Australia. These fires have killed at least 24 people and have now spread to over 1.5 million acres, destroying many homes and wildlife in the process. Thank you Zach, Darius and William for taking the initiative to lead in this service.

Recognizing Marvelous Staff: You don’t have to go any further than the cover of The East Providence Reporter to find this week’s staff of the week, Mr. John Marsula. Two eighth-grade members of the RMS Robotics team, Nathan Tavares and William Laroche, made it a point to nominate their coach and teacher. The boys expressed their appreciation for Mr. Marsula being willing to stay past 7pm each night to get the team ready for the state competition. The Lego League Championships took place on Sunday, January 12, 2020 at Roger Williams University. Our Robotics Team, Magnetech, led by John Marsula took second place in Robot Performance at the First Lego League State Championship. (We like to call them the Public School State Champions!). Congratulations to students Will Laroche, Tiana Brierly, Nathan Tavares, Aidan Lombardo, and Jayden Carlson for their solid performance.
Spotlight on a Legend: Last Thursday, RMS was blessed to be in the company of a local legend...Charles “Chuck” Vermette. Mr. Vermette came to the gymnasium (that bears his name) to watch the boy’s basketball team compete against Deering Middle School. Mr. Vermette is a retired EP teacher and administrator. He was involved with youth sports for over 50 years and served as an official assignor for middle school basketball, baseball and softball. Each June, RMS staff selects one boy and one girl to receive the Charles Vermette Student-Athlete of the Year Award to be honored at our annual Eighth Grade Awards Night ceremony. Thanks, Mr. Vermette, for coming back to RMS to support the kids!
