School Governance Council

River Trail Middle School will be electing representatives to serve on the School Governance Council.  We will be electing (1) parent/guardian position and (1) teacher position for our spring election.  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 11th – March 18th


SGC Elections will be held March 11-18


Please take the time to VOTE between March 11th-18th for a parent representative to serve on the River Trail Middle School Governance Council.  Your input is very important.  Our Council helps to implement the strategic direction and vision of our school.  The current SGC recently completed a 5-year Strategic Plan, and it will be up to our new Council to continue to apply the plan next year.  There is one parent position open for next year.  Your vote will ensure your voice.  Parents of children who will be attending RTMS in the school year 2019-2020 will receive an email with a unique link for voting on Monday, March 11. Please check your email and vote for your candidate of choice. Please read candidate statements.


Georgia Milestones

In our preparation for the Georgia Milestones assessment, 6th and 7th grade students will take the Secure Practice Test on March 7, 2019.  Please make sure that your student charges their surface every night, so they come to school with a fully charged device.  Any student with device issues should report the issue to their Wolfpack teacher and take their device to the Tech Den in the Media Center.  Please contact our testing coordinator, Lori Lahmann-Scullion or your grade level administrator if you have any questions.  Additional information is listed below.

Parent Information Session on Juuling or Vaping

Vaping is a worrisome trend and epidemic among teenagers currently sweeping our communities and homes.  It is a multi-billion dollar industry filled with many "myths" and misinformation created to lure teenagers to this expensive and risky, habit forming trend much like cigarettes years ago. Join us for a parent information session with Pathways2Life, Monday, March 25, 2019, Northview HS Media Center, 6:30 -8:30 pm.  Please RSVP to Alicia McClung, MSW   mcclunga1@fultonschools.org


School Cafe Serves Georgia Grown Hydro Bibb Lettuce in March

In March, the Hydro Bibb Lettuce featured in the signature side salads are part of Fulton County's School Nutrition Harvest of the Month Initiative. This Hydro Bibb Lettuce is a salad green and a great source of vitamin A, potassium, and vitamin C! Hydroponics use water and mineral solutions to grow plants without soil! Be sure to pick up the Georgia Grown Hydro Bibb Lettuce in the school cafe the week of March 18th!

 --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Carpool Safety

For the safety of the students, please utilize the carpool side of parking lot (behind the brick River Trail sign) for student drop off and pick up. The bus lane is reserved for the school busses which have the right of way.



Beginning Monday, August 13, 2018, RTMS will no longer be accepting cash|checks for PE Uniforms, lockers, field trips, club dues, fines, etc. All payments will be made through Online School Payments. OSP is a simple, safe, secure and convenient way for parents to make online payments, which means students no longer need to carry cash|checks into school.

 --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Student Drop Off

Please remember that student drop off begins at 8:15 AM. If you drive your child to school, he/she may not enter the building until 8:15 unless he/she has a specific pass from a teacher to meet with him/her at an earlier time. We do not have staff available before 8:15 am to supervise students, and it is not safe for them to be at school unsupervised.
