A Message from the Principal

February 5, 2021

 

Dear Families,

Happy Friday to you! Our students have had a very busy start to the second semester, adjusting to new electives and delving deeper into their year-long classes. We are looking forward to our 6th, 7th, and 8th grade Associated Student Body (ASB) Officers and their advisor, Ms. Morris, who will join our us next Wednesday at our virtual bi-weekly staff meeting. The students will present information regarding their Leadership class initiatives as well as share student concerns. We had a peak into a few of the initiatives and they range from creating more social time for students during the school day to a lesson preventing cyberbullying. The Leadership students plan to share information about these projects and other exciting events in a bi-weekly newscast- coming soon! We look forward to their presentation. Our Leadership students are not the only students working to serve their fellow students. Our Technology Foundations II students were challenged by their teacher (Ms. Vail) to develop a project that would challenge their Technology Foundations I peers and the resulting project was the Technology I final project! I am very excited to see what our RMS students will develop in these next five months!

 

 

As always, it is a great day to be part of the sleuth!

 

Be well, 

 

Dana Greenberg, Principal

Redmond Middle School 

 

 

The Tiles in the Tree Rings of Redmond Middle School

 

Our journey through the Rings of RMS continues…

1912- This tile commemorates the sinking of the Titanic  

 

 

According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration:

“The sinking of Titanic was one of the deadliest peacetime maritime disasters in history and quickly became a catalyst for change. The United States Congress held hearings on the casualty that resulted in measures to improve safety of navigation. Similar investigations were held in the United Kingdom. The international community readily came together for the purpose of establishing global maritime standards and regulations to promote safety of navigation, the most important of which was the Convention for the Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS), widely regarded as the most important of all international agreements on the safety of merchant ships.”

 

Remember, students designed these tiles.  If anyone in our Redmond community knows the artist of a specific tile, please let us know so we can credit them in a future issue of The Gram

 

The tree ring contains tiles from 1901-2000.  We will continue to post tiles and explore the historic events associated with each tile.  When you are able to visit RMS, we encourage you to look down and find your favorite tile profiled in the Grizzly Gram!
