Principal's Message



For the Week of  9-21-18

RMG Family,

Where has the time gone already!  We are fast approaching the last week in September!

Just a reminder that our Pre -K students will be attending school full days beginning next week.  

The weather is quite unpredictable.  Some days can be warm and other's cooler.  With the fluctuation in outside temperatures, the inside temperatures tend to fluctuate as well.  Please send your child with a sweater or jacket.  

Our 7th grade students attended the EDGE Leadership Camp this week.  This is another wonderful opportunity provided to our school by the EDGE program.  While attending the camp students are led through a variety of exercises that focus on leadership and team building.     

We have started competing in fall sports and it is evident that our practices are paying off.  This week we hosted Princeton for Volleyball, and traveled to Elm Street for our first Cross Country Meet.  I am please to say that our students represented our school and community well during both events.  As the old adage goes "It's not whether you win or lose, but how you play the game".  I am extremely proud of our athletes, their teamwork, and their sportsmanship.  

We are hosting several home games next week.  

*Our soccer team will play Calais at home on Monday September 24th.

*Our volleyball team will play Narraguagus at home on Wednesday September 26th (in the MMHS Gym). 

*We will be hosting a Cross Country Meet on Thursday September 27th. 

Check out our entire sports schedule on the RMG Website and Digital Calendar.

There is a 4:00 start time for all events.  Please come and support our teams!

Go Bulldogs!!!!!

Please review our Academic Sports Policy.  While we appreciate the importance and benefits of extra-curricular activities, it is important that academics are our students' primary focus.  Parents and students were required to sign the athletic policy in order for students to participate, however it may be beneficial for you to review the policy with your student athlete to remind them of academic expectations.  

This year we are once again able to offer tutoring for our 7th and 8th graders through the GEAR UP Grant. Tutoring generally takes place from 2:30-3:30 Monday through Thursday.  While this is open to all 7th and 8th graders, it is a great opportunity for students who may be struggling to keep up with practices and academics to get some extra help.  Just a reminder that there is currently no 3:30 transportation for students who attend.  

Our EDGE program will begin on October 1st.   The link to the online registration is https://www.seacoastmission.org/edgecamp/

 Check us out and see what we're up to!!!
