Career Fair

What’s Happening

Our parking lot will be resurfaced and restriped the first weekend of Spring Break and probably into Monday and Tuesday. Please do not drive into the parking lot until after Tuesday. One big change is that the front parking lots closest to Via Sonoma will be one-way only and have angled parking. This will encourage the one-way flow of traffic and it is our hope that it will make things safer for pick-up and drop-off. Please do not use the teacher parking lot between the marquee and 4-way stop. This will also be one-way with a gate, so it will be difficult to get out if you enter and are not staying for the day.

Notices were mailed last week to parents of 6th grade students in need of shots before starting 7th grade. There will be an opportunity for students to receive those shots here at school on Monday, April 1st. Please see the information and consent forms that went home with the notices. The shot clinic is a collaboration between RRISD Health Services and Healthy Schools. Contact Joanne Johnson for more information.

Help us spread our event to family and friends virtually! Donations can be made online and Virtual Runners can sign up to support! Here is the history of the event:

The run began in May 2016 after one of our students, Lauren Prendeville, was diagnosed with stage 3 mixed-malignant germ cell cancer. Lauren was an 8th grade student at the time, who successfully completed treatment and has gone on to continue sports in high school at Cedar Ridge High School. Since her diagnosis, several other students in our community have been diagnosed with different forms of cancer. Brock Fleming, a 7 year old student at Blackland Prairie passed away from DIPG, a rare form of brain cancer, in December 2016. We want to continue to fight with these families to bring awareness and to raise money for more specialized pediatric cancer research that focuses on a “home run” cure for all cancers. Currently, only 4% of all government funding for cancer helps children and teenagers. So far to date, RMS has raised over $32,500 for pediatric cancer awareness and research. Let’s keep this mission alive and spread the word!
