Don't forget to order your yearbook. Tomorrow is the last day to bring in your order form and money. You can take it too the office or to Mrs. Wilhite in room 115.

Attention 8th graders: Do you feel strongly about living YOUR life to the max, embracing opportunities, all while avoiding risky behaviors? Are you brave enough to tell others how making healthy choices has benefited your life? Then you may be interested in becoming part of The PEERS Project (Peers Educating and Encouraging Relationship Skills). Apply now to become a PEER/PEP leader at www.peersproject.org.

Attention students! We will be having our second midnight gym tomorrow night from 7-11 PM. There will be computer lab time, movies, dancing, board games, dodge ball, basketball, volleyball, food, drinks, and so much more! Cost is $5, but bring extra money because we will be selling extra food, drinks, and candy! You can also form your own dodge-ball team of 10 people and enter a tournament for an extra $10 per team! We are going to have so much fun! Hope to see you all there!?

Eighth grade students who received a permission form to attend the Logansport Century Career Center on Feb. 20th need to have them turned into the office by this Friday (tomorrow). If you need a new form please see Mr. Ross.

The annual school-wide spelling bee will be held on Tuesday, Feb. 3 at 7:30 p.m. in the RMS Commons.

If you have agreed to be a part of the Geography Bee team with Mr. Atkinson, there is a mandatory practice that will be happening immediately after school today. We have a lot of decisions to make!!! See you in Mr. Atkinson's room immediately after school today!

The 6th GBB team will practice today from 6-8 pm at the HS aux. gym.

iPads have been issued to every student at Rochester Middle School.  Each grade level teacher has requested iPad applications that will assist in teaching 21st century skills and increase student achievement.  Many textbooks can be accessed on-line.  RMS students will be using a learning management system called “My Big Campus.”  Parents can checkup on student assignments and grades by signing into “My Big Campus” and/or “Harmony.” 


21st Century Scholar Program

Eighth graders are reminded to apply for the 21st Century Scholar Program and, if eligible, be awarded a 21st Century Scholarship that covers your tuition to a state college for four years. Online application can be found at www.scholars.in.gov. See Ms. Menis at the office for more information.


Incorrect Phone Number

In the Rochester phone book, for Rochester Community Schools, the Middle School Attendance Office phone number is listed as 223-1521.
That is incorrect and no longer in service. Parents should call the school at 223-2280 and the phone will prompt you to push #8 for the attendance.




iPads at RMS!

The focus of the iPad program at Rochester Middle School is to provide tools and resources to the 21st Century Learner.
