2015 Back to School Waiver
RTMS is expanding the use of SmartWaiver as a way to efficiently collect information from Parents\Guardians without having to send home excess paperwork. The first usage for this year is streamlining the "permissions" you give for your child – Bring Your Own Technology (BYOT), Code of Conduct, student directory information, publicity release, sweep bus, etc. Prior to the first day of school, please go to https://www.smartwaiver.com/v/rtms2015/ and complete the requested information for your child.
Project Based Learning Partners
River Trail Middle School is looking for project partners to connect us with our community as we implement Project Based Learning. Possible partnering needs: feedback on a project's authenticity in a particular field, assistance in launching a project, collaborating with students during the project, or as a panelist in reviewing final products.
RTMS Professional Development Days
September 8, 2015
November 20, 2015
February 16, 2016
The River Trail School Governance Council requested, and was approved for 3 professional learning days for the 2015-2016 school year. Students will not attend school on these days. River Trail teachers will participate in professional development courses that will increase classroom instruction strategies in the areas of project based learning and critical thinking. These days ONLY apply to RTMS, not students at other Fulton County Schools.
The SGC elections results are in, and we are pleased to announce that Ebony King is the new parent representative on our School Governance Council. Please congratulate the new Council member who will help guide our school over the next two years. Additional school employee and community members will be appointed in the coming weeks. Completing their terms of service on SGC are: Renee Bartley, Charlotte Franklin, and Robin Gardner. The SGC thanks these faithful members for their dedicated service.
