Town Halls, Safety, Class Lessons

During the week of 8/21, Mrs. Holzum, Mrs. Lessem, and Mrs. Pinsky will be out of the office teaching in classrooms.  Counselors will be on-call on Monday to provide support as needed.  Tuesday-Friday, our school social worker Mrs. Campbell and one counselor (on a rotating basis) will be on-call for student emergencies.

During presentations this week, students will:

  • learn expectations for success during administration’s Town Hall meetings on Monday and Tuesday
  • meet their grade-level counselor during the Town Hall meetings
  • learn about safety and identify a school-based trusted person.  This will occur on a rotating basis during Science classes Tuesday – Friday from School Resource Officer (SRO Thompson) and the grade-level counselor.

Next week (8/28-9/1), counselors will teach lessons to their grade level through social studies classes on a rotating basis.  The first lesson will address Bullying/Suicide Prevention –stay posted next week for parent resources and information.


From January 23-27, 2017, RBSMS is participating in the national Great Kindness Challenge.  Students have a list of kind acts they can perform on- and off-campus and can submit the list for prizes at the end of the week.  Staff can initial acts they witness, or students can take selfies and post to RBSMS Facebook (@RBSMS) or to Twitter (@rbstewartms) using the hashtag #greatkindnesschallenge   We’re so excited to see the positive effects of kindness!
