Greetings RCMS Family:

It was a good week at Middle School.  I was encouraged in talking with other principals knowing that good things are happening here in and amongst the normal trials of Middle School.  We are thankful to partner with you as your student(s) muddles through and gains skills and character that we want to be used to form them more and more like Christ.
