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.

Thoughts from the Rolling Desk

Happy February Break RMS Family:

The cold and wind of the past few days have certainly reminded us that winter still reigns in February in this part of the world.  We certainly enjoyed a high energy day the halls full of sunshine, folks working on Shakespeare scenes, European pops songs (see below), and 6th graders readying for their winterfest.  The upcoming break - a somewhat unique feature of northern New England (and areas that celebrate Mardi Gras) - is certainly welcome to all in the building.  Before we go, however, we wanted to pass along some news and updates: 


Congratulations to the Mathcounts team:

RMS math team

Last Friday the RMS Geese flew to Keene to compete against 90 other mathletes from our region.  RMS won the team round and placed 8 students in the top 12!  It was an amazing showing by our very young team.  Thank you to Coach Wharton and our mathletes: Andy Zhang, Michael Brooks, Simon Yegorov, Haoyi Liu, Martina Vale Dwyer, Agastya Chakrabarti, Ian Bick, Harvey Vale Dwyer, Alan Zhang, Ella Zhang, Pranav Sivakumar, and Tian Tian.

Our World Language classes are preparing for the upcoming, international March Madness Music competitions: "Manie Musicale" and "Locura de Marzo".  Students in our French and Spanish classes began listening to the 16 songs in their respective competitions, learning about the artists, and filling out their brackets.  Who will the winners be? Will the defending champion of Locura de Marzo, Paulo Londra, win with his collaboration with Becky G? Will LeFLOFRANCO win Manie Musicale again with his new song “Level Up”?

If you would like to check out the official brackets and playlists for each competition, they can be found below:

Please enjoy the break away from RMS.  Take some time to enjoy the increasing sunshine, unplug, and replenish for the spring ahead.  As always, be safe, stay well, and take care of each other.
