Here's another from a few week's ago that didn't get posted!

As always, we kick off the week with Responsibility and we would like to recognize 6th grader, Gabriella. Ms. Mendonsa nominated Gabbie for noticing that one of her classmates was struggling and getting frustrated with his multiplication facts. Without hesitation, Gabbie taught him different tricks to remember various tables, including the 12 tables. Ms. Mendonsa reports that watching Gabriella work with the other student was pretty amazing!

Moving on to the Core Value of Mindfulness, RMS would like to recognize the team of Perry, Petsch and Salgueiro...that is Caterina, Makena and Kennedy. They moved all of the furniture in the library and helped set up for this week’s Book Fair. The backs of the dynamic duo of Mrs. Ash and Mrs. Alves really appreciated their help! Way to go, ladies! in the library. Thank you ladies!

Finally, nominated for the Core Value of Scholarship by his teacher, Ms. Masse, is 7th grader, Brayden. With a 100 average, Brayden excels in his Advanced Math class. More importantly, when he is finished with his own work, Brayden will go around and help anyone who may be having difficulty on their own assignment. Once again, this is an example of a student who could be nominated each week in several different categories. Great job, Brayden!

Each week, we also select and recognize one staff member who has nominated a student or colleague for representing one of our Core Values. Congratulations goes out this week to Ms. Dorney, who nominated 8th grader, Tyler. Tyler regularly completes all of his work on time, ignores distractions and shows us that hard work really does pays off as he did an outstanding job on his English exam. Congratulations Tyler and Ms. Dorney!

As always, we kick off the week with Responsibility. Hopefully you got the chance to see and hear our talented RMS band perform during last Thursday’s Spring Concert. Under the direction of Mr. Maguire, all of the different bands and ensembles out did themselves once again. To help make this concert run smoothly, the 8th grade percussion section really stepped up. Caitlin, Matt, Chris and Ethan all took on the responsibility of being the stage crew for the night. In addition to performing, these students took it upon themselves to set up the stage correctly for each new group coming onto the stage. This is a fine example of 8th graders emerging as leaders!

Moving on to the Core value of Mindfulness. We would like to recognize 6th grader, Darius, for his help in the cafeteria. During lunches, students were reminded about having pride in their school and to be mindful about keeping the cafeteria clean. This message really resonated with Darius as he was the last student to leave the cafeteria, staying behind to help clean up any trash that was left behind by his peers. Thank you, Darius, for being thoughtful and for showing pride in your school.

Finally, representing our Core Value of Scholarship this week is 8th grader Dan Rocha. Along with our band concert, last Thursday was also the annual RIMLE Middle Level Scholar Leadership Awards. This prestigious award is given to two students from each middle school in the state. Dan and Makena Petsch represented RMS for demonstrating academic initiative and scholarship, providing service to classmates and school, exemplifying positive attitudes and for demonstrating leadership in the classroom and school activities. Dan also opted to show his responsibility to RMS and his fellow band members by remaining behind to perform on stage during his concert.

We would also like to recognize Mr. Maguire, our staff winner of the week. It was a busy, yet rewarding week for our band director. In addition to the Spring concert, the RMS Percussion Ensemble won first place this past weekend at the annual percussion festival at URI. Our little middle school defeated several other percussion ensembles (including six high schools) to take the trophy. Congratulation to Mr. Maguire and Rob Martin for their hard work with the band program. And if you haven’t had the chance to watch our band perform yet, you will have one final opportunity next Monday to come cheer them on (and to also show your Patriotism) as they march from the carousel to the American Legion during Riverside’s Memorial Day Parade!
