Curriculum Night doors open at 6:00. The formal program begins promptly at 6:30 PM in your student’s Grizzly Time classroom. We encourage you to come before that so you can get oriented, get your student’s schedule and get to the right classroom by 6:30.

Our RMS Volunteers are Wonderful!
RMS PTSA and RMS staff would like to send a huge  THANK YOU  to all of the volunteers who helped out during Griz Biz and the first week of school with the various tasks needed to get the school year off to a great start. From handing out laptops, name tags, student schedules, collecting school supplies, directing traffic, helping out with picture day, and generally just being available to lend a generous helping hand, we are extremely grateful for the wonderfully supportive RMS school community.
