Dear RMS Families,
It is with great pleasure and anticipation that I welcome you to the 2019-20 school year. At Redwood Middle School, we are committed to providing our students with the most positive experience possible for the three years that we share with them.
The middle school years are a time of change and challenges for students and are filled with new experiences. Students grow academically, physically, socially, and emotionally. It is our goal to develop positive relationships with our students and to guide them during these years. We are committed to providing many opportunities for students to discover their interests, collaborate with peers, and to develop real-world problem solving and critical thinking skills.
We have spent the summer developing both academic and social/emotional programs to meet the needs of all our students. Teachers and staff have taken time in their summer to attend institutes, take additional professional development and spend time collaborating to strengthen our curriculum and lesson plans. Redwood’s custodians have been hard at work, and our buildings look clean and ready to go. Our district has updated the school website so please bear with us as we continue to make them more user-friendly. We hope you will be a frequent visitor to Redwood’s website for the latest announcements and our up-to-date calendar.
The process of educating students is truly a partnership. We will foster open communication with parents and encourage positive dialogue regarding school matters. I encourage you to contact the school any time you have a concern, need clarification or simply want to check in with your child’s teacher.
I am honored to be the principal of Redwood and I look forward to working with you as we prepare our students for high school, college, career, and life.
