Here's something that will hopefully brighten the day of our 8th graders! RMS 2020 Yearbooks will be free for 8th Graders. With the help of the (award winning) RMS PTSA and the fundraising for the Washington DC trip that we did this year, we will be purchasing a soft cover yearbook for every 8th grader. If you have already purchased a yearbook package, the difference between the cost of the soft cover yearbook and the package will be refunded to you in the coming weeks. Purchases on YB pay will be refunded directly to your credit card. Checks for the difference will be sent to anyone who paid by check. More information will be provided soon.

Also, here is the ordering information for 6th and 7th graders.
