Fulton County Champs!

The academic team had a tough weekend at the Collins Hill HS tournament, an event River Trail had won four years in a row. The B,C, and D teams all lost in the first round of the playoffs, but the A team was able to salvage the day by winning 9 of 10 matches and finishing third. The Wolves got back on track on Monday at the Fulton County championships, defeating Autrey Mill in the finals. RTMS has won 5 of the last 7 FC titles.


Thank You PTO and Junior Betas

On Saturday, November 11th, twenty student and parent volunteers descended on the overgrown landscaping in the back of our school.  After over 3 hours of cutting, sawing, dragging and sweating our 8th grade teachers can once again see out of their windows and know that the sun is shining!  RTMS would like to specifically thank

Mr. and Ms. Skinner, Ms. Aksamit, Ms. Serfontein and Ms. Huang for their hard work and support!  Be on the lookout for our spring Dig-in-Day information!

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.
