Red Apple Competition: This April is our spring challenge month to raise money through Red Apple, the little red schoolhouse in our south parking lot. If you are doing any spring cleaning over break or throughout the month of April, please bring in your donations starting April 1st. We won the competition for most pounds donated in the fall for the entire Denver area, so we KNOW we can do it this spring! Happy Cleaning!!
8th Grade Panoramic Picture: Hello 8th Graders Parents: The 8th Grade Panoramic Pictures will be taken on Wednesday, April 1st at 8:45 AM in the gym. This is the ONLY time pictures will be taken of the whole 8th grade class, so please make sure your student is in school and on time for the special event. Students will receive order forms and information at the picture. The order deadline for the lowest price will be Sunday, April 5th. Additional information is available at www.BestClassPicture.com.
Student Recognition Breakfast Invitations: We will be celebrating many students at this month’s student recognition breakfast! The breakfast, for students and their families, is March 31st at 7:30 AM in the cafeteria. If your student was nominated for an award, they received their invitation today.
Community Meeting: Come to the RTMS library on April 1st at 5:00 PM to be part of the development of our mission and vision as we move into the 2015-16 school year.
School Dance: Just a reminder we’ll have a dance for Rocky Top students only on April 9th from 6:00 to 8:00 PM. What a great way to kick off a long weekend since RTMS is closed on Friday, April 10th. Students, watch the announcements regarding ticket sales.
(UPDATE) Grizzlies CAN Stop Cyberbullying: During today’s assembly, 6th graders worked with our counseling department to practice assertive communication strategies. Click HERE for the presentation they shared then review it with your Grizzly to see what s/he learned!
(REPEAT) Progress Reports: It’s hard to believe the end of Quarter 3 was March 13th! In preparation for posting final marks (quarter-long classes only) and progress marks (semester and yearlong classes), the Infinite Campus Parent Portal will be closed March 17th through April 1st. This means the most current academic progress reports will be available as of April 2nd.
(REPEAT) Keeping Grizzlies Safe: The coming of spring (easy to say today!) means we’ll be having our unannounced lockdown drill sometime soon. We wanted to take this time to remind you how we communicate during and after all safety drills and actual emergencies. You’ll receive immediate notifications via Facebook, Twitter, Infinite Campus Messenger, and SchoolMessenger (audio recording). Be sure to “like” us, “follow” us, and subscribe to any or all of these sources for the most up-to-date information!
(REPEAT) Empty Bowls Family Nights: Empty Bowls, an international grassroots effort to fight hunger, was created by The Imagine Render Group. The basic premise is simple: Craftspeople, educators, students and others work with the community to create handcrafted bowls. Guests are then invited to a simple meal of soup and bread on May 6th and, in exchange for a cash donation, guests get to keep a bowl as a reminder of all the empty bowls in the world. The money raised is donated to local food banks to support their efforts to end hunger and food insecurity throughout our community. Family nights for bowl painting are offered in February, March and April...sign up HERE before all the spots are filled!

Empty Bowls is an international grassroots effort to fight hunger and was created by The Imagine Render Group. The basic premise is simple: Potters and other craftspeople, educators, students and others work with the community to create handcrafted bowls. Guests are invited to a simple meal of soup and bread. In exchange for a cash donation, guests are asked to keep a bowl as a reminder of all the empty bowls in the world. The money raised is donated to our local food banks that serve the Adams 12 Five Star School District community working to end hunger and food insecurity.
