 We are off to an amazing start at Russellville Middle School. 

Fall is in the air and time is flying by. It’s hard to believe that the end of the first nine weeks is in sight! 

 We would like to congratulate Garron Rice, 

our student of the month for September.

 In 7th grade Language Arts, the students will be reading 

Mildred Taylor's Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry. 

 Each student will be assigned a take-home copy to read each night.  

Please help your child keep up with the reading assignments and the books!

 A flu clinic will be held at RMS on October 19th

Forms have been sent home with your child.  

BOTH  the FERPA and the flu shot forms have 

to be filled out correctly before a student can get a flu shot.
