 MOYA - Month of the Young Adolescent

River Trail will be celebrating our young adolescents with various dress-up days throughout the month. RTMS Staff encourages everyone to participate and join in on the fun. See the MOYA calendar for the dress-up days. Celebrations will end with a pep rally on Friday, Oct 27th.  


Student & Staff Recognition Program Begins

October is not only the designated Month of the Young Adolescent (MOYA) it is also the month that kicks off River Trail's student recognition program, Wolf of the Month, sponsored by Chick Fil A at Johns Creek, Creative Hair Salon and Publix @ Shakerag. Each month a character trait is paired with a content area department, and the teachers in that department each select a student who exemplifies this characteristic. These students become our Wolves of the Month. The character trait and department changes from month to month and each trait is highlighted prior to the selection in wolf pack activities.


Drug Dog Visit

As part of our Oct 30 – Nov 3 Red Ribbon Week activities, the Johns Creek police K-9 team will conduct a search of our school.  Although such a visit can occur anytime, this particular one is being done to educate students on the importance of not having drugs at school.  Please help reinforce the drug-free message with your children through conversations at home.   


Community Night – Thurs., Oct. 26th

River Trail will align with Northview High School to participate in "community night" on October 26th.    Activities at RTMS before school and during the school day will operate as normal; all afternoon activities will be cancelled.  There will be no sweep bus.  No assignments or graded assessments will be due on October 27th . The night of Oct 26th should be a time that all students and staff take a breath and remember to have balance in their lives.  Students and staff are expected to take a step back from academic work and focus on family, friends, and community. 


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.     


Academic Team Earns Another Trophy

At the GATA Brookwood tournament last weekend the B team posted a 5-2 record and finished in 5th place, earning a spot at nationals. The A team again reached the finals, but fell one question short of winning. The A team finished with an 8-1 record and the runner-up trophy.


Academic Team Qualifies for GA Regionals

On Tuesday the academic team participated in the annual Fulton County competition. The Wolves won 6 matches on the day, garnering first place in their division and earning a berth in the county finals. The result also guarantees the team a spot at the GA regionals for the 6th straight year.

Throughout the week, Fulton County School cafes will have a recipe contest to win a culinary set, free samples on Try-It Tuesday, and a chance to win the Grand Prize at the end of the week.  Join your school café to try one of our recipes for success!
