Welcome back to school everyone! The RVMS staff is very excited to start the 2014-2015 school year. We are very popular again this year, with over 860 students attending. School starts promptly at 8:00 am and ends at 3:00 pm. You might want to come a little early to help your student get situated. When dropping off and picking up your student, please drive safely and take your time. Student safety is all our responsibility. We look forward to seeing everyone!
Rincon Valley Middle School’s Orientation will be on Wednesday, August 13th. All families should have received an orientation packet in the mail by mid July. If you do not have an orientation packet, please drop by the main office at RVMS and pick one up. Orientation starts with returning 8th grade families from 10:00-12:00 pm. New 7th grade families are welcome from 1:30-3:30 pm. Students will receive their books, locks, and schedules. We also have available for sale PE clothes, calculators, locker and school supplies. School pictures will be taken during orientation, so be sure to wear something appropriate. The whole process of orientation will take about an hour. The line may look long, but with over one hundred parent volunteers, it goes pretty fast. Our parent organization, the STPC, will also be collecting donations for our annual “Family Giving Campaign”. We hope you’ll be able to donate to this vital fundraiser, as it is our main source of revenue for most of our extracurricular activates throughout the year. We look forward to a great 2014-2015 school year and to seeing everyone on August 13th!
Mr. Marshall – Principal RVMS
Our congratulations go out to the RVMS Middle School Marching Band for taking second place in the Rose Parade at the middle school level. Our little sister, the Santa Rosa Accelerated Charter School, won first place in the elementary category! We’re very proud of our band students for doing such an outstanding job. Additional thanks go out our band director, Mr. Saler, for putting in the time and energy it took to prepare our students for the Rose Parade. Nice job everyone!
The RVMS production of Beauty and the Beast was a huge hit this year. Mrs. Brown and her drama students did a magnificent job putting on two complete double casts over six nights. Our students performed to sold out crowds in the gym. I’d like to thank all our students and Mrs. Brown for producing a high school quality show that really wowed the audience. Bravo!
