 GA Milestone Testing

RTMS students in grades 6 - 8 will be involved in GA Milestones testing during the weeks April 12-30.  Students in grades 6 and 7 will take an end-of-grade assessment in English Language Arts and mathematics while students in grades 8 are also assessed in science and social studies. Students in the high school Honors Physical Science course and 9th grade Honors Literature course will be taking an end-of-course assessment as designated by the State Board of Education.  Parents and students can experience the online system here..

In order to help make sure your child is prepared, calm, and well rested and approaches the Georgia Milestones in a relaxed, positive way, please be certain your student gets plenty of sleep and has a healthy breakfast, lunch, and dinner.  Testing will begin each assessment day at 9:00AM; please be certain your student is at school on time; rushing and worrying about being late could affect performance on the tests. The schedule for testing is as follows:

4/12 EOG Writing Assessment (all grade levels)
4/16 EOG ELA Assessment (all grade levels)  
4/18 EOG Math Assessment (all grade levels)
4/23 EOG Science Assessment (8th grade only)
4/24 EOG Social Studies Assessment (8th grade only)
4/25 EOC 9th grade Literature Writing Assessment (8th grade students)
4/26 EOC 9th grade Literature ELA Assessment (8th grade students)

River Trail Middle School will be hiring a new principal for the 2018-19 school year, and need your valuable input as to the qualities and characteristics this new principal must embody.

School Cafe Serves Farm Fresh Blueberries in April

In April, the Blueberries served at lunch are part of Fulton County's School Nutrition Farm to School Initiative. These blueberries have been grown and harvested from farmers across the Southeast. Since the blueberries are grown nearby, they are at peak freshness, more environmentally friendly and help support our local farmers! Blueberries are rich in vitamin K and vitamin C! 

Be sure to pick up the farm fresh blueberries in the school cafe the week of April 23rd!


Junior Beta Club

The Junior Beta Club induction ceremony will be held Thursday April 26th at 7:00 p.m. in the gym. Please fill out the information form located on the Jr. Beta Edmodo site before Friday April 20th.


8th Grade Parent Tours of Northview High School

The Northview PTSA is hosting school tours on Wednesday, Apr 25th at 9:30am for all 8th grade parents who want to get a peek inside Northview HS. This is particularly beneficial for parents of students who are a little nervous about rising to high school. When the parents understand the lay of the building, it's easy for them to qualm the nerves of their students who might be a little unsure of themselves. The purpose of this event is to tour the building. Teachers and counselors will not be on hand to discuss course options. Come visit Northview, there's lots to see!


Summit OnSite

River Trail is excited to join other North Fulton secondary schools in the "Summit OnSite" program!  The mental health/wellness of our students is as important as their physical and academic well-being, and we don't want appointment-scheduling to be a hindrance.  Katie Beals, a therapist from the Summit Counseling Center, is available for mental health counseling sessions at River Trail with RTMS students during the school day on Thursdays.  For more information or to make an appointment, please see this FAQ.  For contact information on other off-site therapists, please contact Ms. Graff, Ms. Bartley, or Mr. Peterson in our counseling office.

2018-19 PTA

PTA is a good way to stay involved and know what is going on at the middle school. We are currently assembling the 2018-2019 executive board and committee chairs. There are still some spots available:  Two board positions: Treasurer (the outgoing treasurer will have an 8th grader next year so she will be available for consults!) and VP of Ways and Means. This VP position is over school store, spirit wear, incentives and membership.

Committee chair positions: Red Ribbon Week (substance abuse awareness), Membership, Spirit Call (fall dance), 8th Grade Dance (current chairs will have 8th graders next year and will still be around to help), Directory (the directory is electronic, so all work on this can be done from home), PTA Eblast (also composed and sent from home).  If interested, or if you have any questions, contact Kim Ware at: kimberlysware@yahoo.com by Saturday, April 28th.
