  • Book Fair – December 2nd through 6th

    It’s time once again for the annual RTMS Book Fair. Beginning Monday, December 2nd, Scholastic Book Fairs will fill the Media Center with an assortment of books. It’s a great time to stock up on holiday gifts and books for winter reading. Parents are invited to browse at any time during the day between 8:15 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. Students will have the opportunity to visit and make purchases through their language arts classes.

    Book Fair Online

    Starting 11/27 through 12/10, you can also shop online at bit.ly/rtmsbkfair19.  The orders will be delivered to students' home, and a portion of purchase will be donated to the school.

    Volunteers Needed

    Volunteers are needed to help students locate books and to keep our book fair neat and organized as well as assist students in making their purchases. To show our appreciation, volunteers will receive a 10% discount on purchases made at the Book Fair. Please contact Seani Serfontein if you are interested: seanica.serfontein@gmail.com **As a reminder, volunteers are required to register by completing the mandatory online training and application.

  • Family Media Agreement

    A healthy media diet balances three things: what kids do, how much time they spend doing it, and whether their content choices are age-appropriate. Mixing media and tech time with other activities will help families find that happy medium. Use the Common Sense Family Media Agreement and Device Contract to set realistic rules that make sense for your family so you and your kids can make the most out of media and tech time. http://bit.ly/familymediaagree

If you drive your child to school, he/she may not enter the building until 8:15 unless he/she has a specific pass from a teacher to meet with him/her at an earlier time. We do not have staff available before 8:15 am to supervise students, and it is not safe for them to be at school unsupervised.

  • PTO Membership Drive

    The middle school years are impactful for students.  At RTMS, you can expect an environment that is safe, respectful, and enriching, in order for each student to grow academically, emotionally, and socially.   Middle school is also a time for parents to continue their involvement, so I encourage you to become active with the Parent Teacher Organization (PTO).  Membership and volunteer opportunities are located at  https://rivertrailpto.com/membership/.

    Thank you for choosing River Trail Middle School.  We appreciate your endless trust and support as we help your child to reach their highest potential.
