Students who read at least 500 pages and returned their logs by the specified date were allowed to eat in the courtyard with friends, were treated to a tropical fruit pop, a free poster, a free bookmark and a coupon for five free chicken fingerz compliments of the Batesville Road Zaxby’s Restaurant.  

Royal Ambassadors

RMS has begun a program that welcomes new 8th grade students called "Royal Ambassadors."  

The Royal Ambassadors are RMS students who are selected through Service Learning classes and/or teacher recommendations. These students are matched up with a new student through at least one academic class. The Royal Ambassadors will provide them with a folder of information to assist the student in learning how RMS runs; learning who’s who in our school; providing information about the special events, sports teams, student clubs, and other activities that RMS offers. They will also assist the new student with making a smoother transition socially through introducing them to other RMS students.
