Welcome to the Administrators Corner. My name is Tim Boyle, principal of Frances C. Richmond Middle School (RMS). Each Friday I will use this space to keep you updated on important events and topics from our school. This "Richmond Friday Focus" will supplement my twitter feed (in the column to the right), where I will post events important to our community. You will also find Anissa Morrison's, Associate Principal, twitter feed. We welcome any and all feedback.

I hope you find all of this information helpful, informative and fun.

Regards,
Tim

Thoughts from the Front Office

Dear Parents/Caregivers:

What a great week at RMS!  This week saw the culmination of many projects and plans.  On Tuesday morning our 8th graders ventured forth onto Garipay field to test the balloons they had been working on for almost a month.  Colorful tissue paper competed with shiny mylar to fill the sky with student creations that followed the wind for many minutes.  To watch 8th graders turn from “the cool students” to giddy young people so excited about balloons is always a fun interlude for the adults.  Again the cooperation, community, and caring that is much a focus on the physics of flight was on full display.  A great day!

Monday and Tuesday saw a visit to the 6th grade by Julian Leon from VEEP (Vermont Energy Education Programs) to discuss home heat transfer, culminating in a design challenge involving insulating model homes.  The testing it taking place today (just in time to come up with insulating ideas to keep us cool in the upcoming weeks).

Finally, Friday saw the 7th grade embark on their semi-regular Forest Friday.  After a long week of negotiations on the future of the planet in the annual global climate summit, where students took on different roles from different part of the world in an effort to limit global warming, they took advantage of the beautiful day to examine the natural world they were hoping to preserve.  As always our student’s enthusiasm proves contagious.

Please take a minute this weekend to complete this survey to help inform the future of RMS.

We are looking forward to the last month of school, and excited to see what energy and excellence our students will bring.

Enjoy the weekend.  Be safe, stay well, and take care of each other.
