RMS updates and reminders for September/October 2018


  • Please take advantage of FREE after school tutoring for students that starts on Tuesday, September 25th. This tutoring and homework club opportunity takes place every Tuesday and Thursday in the RMS library from 3:05 – 4:15 pm.  We have two high school tutors for all levels of math, and adult supervisors that can help in all subject areas.  The Brain Train is back in action this year and will take your student home each Tuesday & Thursday at 4:20 pm.  This activity bus drops students off at the elementary school closest to their home.   The 1st drop is at Roosevelt, followed by Madison and then the bus drops students at Boston Harbor.  If time permits, kids in Boston Harbor will be dropped off at their home since they are the last to exit the bus.
  • Please join us at our first RMS Community Council meeting on Wednesday, October 10th from 6:00-7:30 pm in the Library!  Our RMS Community Council is a merging of our Site Council and Parent Connection (PTA) that serves all students at Reeves Middle School.  We need to fill both the President and Vice President roles on our council.  Please attend the meeting and volunteer!
