Dear Falcon Family,
Welcome to October! To kick off this month, we celebrated National Custodians Day on October 2nd. At RSMS, we are extremely fortunate to have such a hardworking and dedicated team of custodians! We sincerely appreciate our custodians for all they do for our school and community.
As we shared with yesterday, it's time to sign-up for our Fall Parent-Teacher Conferences. Parents may sign up for a conference slot with a teacher using this Conference Links Document.
Once you access the document, simply look for your child's teachers and click on each of their names. This will take you to the teacher's Sign Up Genius where you will select the time for your conference. It is important to note, we will accept sign-ups for conferences until 12:00 p.m. on Tuesday, October 6.
Please be sure to sign up prior to that time.Each of your child's teachers will send a follow-up email by 7:00 p.m. on Wednesday, October 7, sharing a Zoom link to the conference session to those parents who have made appointments.
Remember, due to our quarter schedule for classes, we will hold a second set of conferences on Thursday, November 19 from 3:30-7:00 p.m
to allow parents to have the opportunity to talk with their child's second-quarter teachers. That being said, since Language Arts is a year-long course (unless your child's Language Arts class is CCLA), you can choose to meet with your child's Language Arts teacher at our conferences on November 19.
On another note, we are happy to share that all grades in Infinite Campus can be viewed accurately through the Parent Portal. The RSD Technology Department worked with the vendors of both Infinite Campus and Canvas to correct any miscommunication occurring between these programs.
Remember to encourage your students to view our Talon Talk announcements
for this week and our Mindful Monday video from our School Counselors. You will find our Mindful Monday video on our counselor's grade-level Canvas pages
. Remember, you can choose to have your child access this information over the weekend or during our scheduled Student Advisory Block from 8:00-8:45 a.m. on Monday mornings. In addition, you can find our www.FalconProud.com
website on our counselor's grade-level Canvas pages to access after school activities sign-ups, our Talon Talk announcements, and more.
On another note, I would like to share an important letter
with you from the Summit Athletic Director, Mitch Lefkowitz, regarding spectators at RSHS sporting events. Per St. Louis County Guidelines, students are not permitted to attend either the home or away sporting events unless they are a family member of one of the athletes. That being said, each athlete is only allowed to bring TWO family members.
Please help our High School in following these guidelines as we do not want to jeopardize our athletes' participation in sporting events.
If there is anything we can do at this time to assist you or your child, please let us know.
We greatly appreciate your partnership and support! Please do not hesitate to contact us with questions at 636-891-6850.
With Falcon Pride,
