 School Governance Council Openings

River Trail Middle School will be electing representatives to serve on the School Governance Council.  We will be electing TWO parent/guardian positions and ONE teacher position for our spring election.  Our School Governance Council has a leadership role in the governance of the school. The Council works with the principal in setting the long-term vision and strategy for the school. They are responsible for approving the school’s strategic plan and budget recommendations, as well as designing innovative solutions to increase academic achievement and meet the unique needs of our school community.

Elections for the parent/guardian and teacher positions on the School Governance Council will be held March 19th-March 23rd. Candidates interested in running for an elected position on the Council must complete a candidate declaration form and submit by February 23rd. 


Mindfulness Class

Our Summit OnSite therapist, Katie Beals, is offering a free, six-week mindfulness class for students, February 22-March 29.  The group will meet 8:00-8:30 AM each Thursday in the CCR.  Space is limited to 15 students.  If your child is stressed, anxious about grades or peer relationships, sad more days than not, or might enjoy some time to connect and relax, they would be a good fit for this group.  To sign up your child, or to ask any questions, e-mail Katie Beals at kbeals@summitcounseling.org.

 RTMS International Night

We are currently looking for people to participate in the RTMS International Night on March 27 from 6pm to 7:30pm. RTMS International Night will be an evening filled with cultural entertainment and food from around the world! This is a great opportunity to showcase and teach others in our community about the many cultures represented in our school.   Be there and show off your zest for your country! If you are interested, please contact Ms. Hosley (hosleys@fultonschools.org) or Ms. Reed (reedmd@fultonschools.org ).


Inclement Weather Make-up Days

Fulton County Schools has announced its plan to make up some of the days lost this year due to inclement weather. There will be three make-up days – February 16, March 9, and March 12.  (River Trail students will not have school for Presidents Day on February 19 and for RFF Professional Learning Day on February 20.)  February 16 and March 12 will be "regular" school days, whereas March 9 will be a Digital Learning Day.  The specifics of the March 9 Digital Learning Day are still being worked out; we will communicate them in the coming weeks.  We're excited to see our school district consider the use of Digital Learning Days and look forward to providing feedback on how it worked for our students and teachers.

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.
