The Rincon Valley Middle School Marching Band took first place in this years annual Rose Parade. We’re very proud of our students and band director, Mr. Saler, for doing an outstanding job. Congratulations everyone! For more pictures, click the link below.
Today while all 8th grade students took the STAR test in science, the 7th graders were taught Hands Only CPR. SRJC teacher and former radio star Ted Williams worked with RVMS staff to train over 450 7th grade students today. Also at the presentation was Ted Griffith, whose 7th grade son saved his life by performing Hands Only CPR on him back in August. When Steve was talking about how his son saved his life, you could have heard a pin drop in our gym. After the big presentation in the gym, every 7th grade student spent 45 minutes in their PE classes learning how to perform Hands Only CPR (See attachment). This is now the third year RVMS has trained its entire 7th grade class in Hands Only CPR. My deep thanks go out to Rita Weighall for coordinating this event and our entire staff for making this a priority for our students.
The students looked like they had a great time at the dance today. We had five hundred students participate! My thanks go out to our Leadership students and Mr. Eagle for organizing such a fun event for our kids. The Michael Jackson impersonator was a big hit and he taught the students a few dance moves too! DJ Dax did a great job providing the music and keeping the tempo of the dance hopping. Our wonderful parent organization, the STPC, provided all the snacks and drinks. As part of our new focus on healthy choices, students had nutritious choices for snacks and drinks along with the usual fare. What a great way to begin the weekend.
Here is a look at our Winter Concert on Wednesday night, December 10, 2014. The RVMS Jazz band, 7th grade band and 8th grade band performed for over ninety minutes to an enthusiastic audience who braved poor weather to hear our amazing students. The performance was a testament to the dedication of our band director, Jon Saler and our students. Nice job everyone! For a few pictures, click on the link below.
