Who’s Wise Words

In our community, we will be






We are now in year five of our school wide positive behavior system (PBIS). We are continuing to focus on Who’s Wise Words of kindness, respect, responsibility and safety at school. You may notice Who’s Wise Words posters around the school and may have heard your children talking about “positive pellets”. Positive pellets are distributed by staff in the building when we notice students following one or more of Who’s Wise Words by showing kindness, respect, responsibility, and safety. 

Over the summer I was fortunate to join a team from Marion Cross that attended the BEST Institute in Killington to continue building our multi tiered system of supports (MTSS) at MCS. Our focus this summer was on implementing restorative practices within our MTSS framework. A restorative approach involves principle-based processes and practices that can be applied to help things go right as well as respond when things go wrong.

Class Counsel with Ms. Keel

6th Grade Parent Meeting: Transition to RMS

The 7th Grade Team at RMS is hosting a transition meeting for 6th grade parents on Monday, June 3rd at 6 PM in the RMS Auditorium (feel free to park in the north parking lot). Our 7th grade teachers and counselors would like to introduce themselves and share some basic information about the start of school and transition resources. There will be an opportunity for Q & A, and parents will have the option to tour RMS following the formal presentation.

The RMS Counseling team will work with the MCS staff to identify a time during the 6th grade visit to RMS in preparation for Poetry Night, for 6th grade students to tour RMS and meet RMS staff. MCS and RMS special education and 504 teams are connecting throughout May and June to provide individualized transition support for students, and any other parents who would like to connect with a member of the RMS Counseling team, are encouraged to email Liz Powers or John LaCrosse.
