Weeks of September 1 -  September 11

Welcome to Redmond Middle School!
Dear Families,
On behalf of the teachers, staff, and students of Redmond Middle School I am pleased to launch the first edition of the RMS 
Grizzly Gram (to honor our Mascot, the wonderful Grizzly bear!). The Grizzly Gram will contain fun facts about RMS, articles about our teachers, staff, and students, as well as information regarding upcoming events. We will publish the Grizzly Gram twice each month. 

It is a great day to be part of the sleuth!

Fun Fact: What is a group of Grizzly Bears Called? A Sleuth of Bears
A group of bears is called a sleuth or a sloth. In the same way that the word “long” becomes “length” or the word “moon” becomes month, the old-fashioned –th added to an adjective form a noun. Sloth or sleuth originates from the adjective slow, and although bears are not particularly known for being the slowest animals, it could have originated from their habit of hibernation or from their habit of appearing like they are constantly in search of something – hence the word sleuth, which also means detective.

1st Day of School "Live" Assembly
 We all learn something new at school each and every day! For me, it was how to participate in a live assembly! A special shout out to Kass Morris, our Leadership Teacher, who took on the role of producer of the live event. Thanks Kass! 
What is the "Bell" Schedule for Next week?
 Monday is Labor Day and a day off for students and staff. We have changed the bell schedule a few times (enough to confuse most of us). To find the most up-to-date calendar for any week, log onto our website, and scroll down to the first button on the left. That button, Remote Learning Bell Schedule, has a schedule for each week of the school year! You can find the most up to date information on the website! The surprise change for next week is that on Tuesday students will go to each period of the day 1-6.
