Georgia Parents Survey

The "Georgia Parents Survey" is a component of our school's annual CCRPI score, and your input is valuable in maintaining River Trail's strong reputation. RTMS received a 97.1% last year, the 8th highest rated of all Georgia middle schools. Parents, please take the time to thoughtfully do this survey here. Students and staff will be completing similar surveys at school.    

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------                                         Academic Bowl Tournament

Congratulations to the team of Boidik C, Ashu C, Srikar M, Vivek V, and Anthony W for their outstanding performance at last weekend's PAGE Academic Bowl Region tournament. Players have moved on to the state competition in Milledgeville. GO WOLVES!


School Governance Council

Elections for RTMS School Governance Council are coming up soon!  There will be two positions up for election: a teacher position and a parent position.  We need your involvement in this very important work for our school.  Be on the lookout for more information.  



PTA Membership Drive

Due to a decrease in membership this year the PTA is at a deficit in our budget, and we need your help!  We fund so many of the programs your children enjoy at RTMS, and we do not want to have to cut any of those.  Please consider joining at the Bronze Level for $55.  This will help the PTA fund our planned programs and also give you access to the online directory.  A form for membership and donations is being sent home with report cards.  You can have your child turn in that form with your payment to the front office or you can join online.  You can contact Mary Ellen Skeens with any questions. Thanks you so much for your support! 

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Newcomers Coffee at River Trail MS

 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Parent Volunteers Needed

The Annual Scoliosis Screening will be held on Tue, Feb 7th for 6th and 8th graders. Twelve parent volunteers are needed from 8:30 am -12:30 pm to assist the Fulton County School Nurse Team with conducting the screenings. If you are able to assist with this event, please email no later than Fri, Jan 27th. Your availability to help with this important health service is appreciated.


End of Course (EOC) Test-Out Option

Once again, RTMS will offer the "test out" option for eligible students for the following EOC Assessments: 9th Lit/Comp, Algebra 1, and Physical Science. Although this is an opportunity for students to move past a high school course without taking it, parents and students should carefully weigh the impact as some classes are stepping stones for others. Additional information about student eligibility requirements and the testing out process will be posted on the RTMS website under the Parent Tab soon. School will host a Parent EOC Q & A Forum on Thu, Jan 19, 2017 in the Media Center at 6:00 PM.
