In honor of School Social Work week which is March 4-10, 2018, we’d like to take a few extra minutes at the end of morning announcements next week to implement calming techniques derived from a program entitled Calm Classroom. Similar to our Drop Everything and Read (D.E.A.R.) days, we are asking that you Drop Everything and Relax. Teachers are strongly encouraged to engage in the techniques being shared each day so as to model to students that social-emotional health is just as important as intellectual health and well-being. This is the perfect time for all RMS staff and students to take a moment for themselves before the day gets going. We are sure you have lots of thoughts and questions going through your head right now. So, we have created this FAQS page, again, derived from the Calm Classroom program. Please take a moment to read to yourself OR feel free to read aloud to your class after the first calming technique this Monday, read by Bryan Zwemke himself!

Educators value young adolescents and are prepared to teach them.
Effective middle grades educators make a conscious choice to work with young adolescents and advocate for them. They understand the developmental uniqueness of this age group, the appropriate curriculum, effective learning and assessment strategies, and their importance as models. We have a great staff at the middle school and are fortunate to work with awesome teachers and staff.

Good morning. Today is a part of National School Counseling Week. Today’s message is about tapping into your network to reach your dreams.
Pop star Katy Perry once said, “It takes a village to make me who I am.” This simple quote has a lot of depth. Each one of us has a village. Your village consists of your classmates, friends, family, teachers and others who surround you each day. Your village can help you become who you want to be. Your village is your network.
Sometimes when we share our dreams and goals with our village, they can provide much needed support to help us achieve them. If you’ve set a goal to increase your grade in a class maybe discuss your goal with your teacher. He/she could provide you with strategies to help you accomplish what you’ve set out to do.
Who do you trust in your village to help you with your dreams? Who could be a resource and help you along your path to achieving your goals? Give this some thought and come see me if you want to chat.
Be sure to notice where your teachers went in pursuit of their stars and ask them how they got there?
Make today count!

Attention NJHS members: please check the Google Classroom to sign up for counting money for Have a Heart for Haiti, double check the roster that is posted, sign up for the Remind classroom and sign up for the Feed My Starving Children. Thanks!

Stellar Girls! This Friday we will be joined by two femineers from Northrop Grumman. It promises to be an electrifying event!

Person 1: One day more!!
Person 2: Until the Penny Wars!
Person 1: Don’t forget to bring your change
Person 2: Otherwise you might feel strange.
Person 1: And bring your bills to compete
Person 2: Against other teachers so you can eat
Person 1 and Person 2 together: Pizza!!
Person 2: But in all seriousness, the Penny Wars start tomorrow!

Good morning. Today is a part of National School Counseling Week. I would like to begin today’s message with a quote from Eleanor Roosevelt. She once said, “The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.” What can you do to achieve your dreams? Work hard? Sure? Write down your dream on paper so you can see it every day. Of course. But there is one simple thing you must do in order to achieve your dreams – set goals.
Goals, similar to dreams, are things that you aspire to do. You can have a goal to get a certain grade in your most challenging class. You can have a goal to create a time management plan for tackling your homework after school. You can even have a goal to wake up a bit earlier each day so you won’t rush in the mornings before school. Goals are things you want to set your mind to accomplish. Do you need help with setting your personal goals? If you do, set an appointment with your school counselor.
Stay focused. Be kind. Be great!

Attention NJHS members: please check the Google Classroom to sign up for counting money for Have a Heart for Haiti, double check the roster that is posted, sign up for the Remind classroom and sign up for the Feed My Starving Children. Thanks!

You are invited to Wired for Math after school today in room 104. You can get extra help on homework and use the internet for projects. Bring your homework and your chromebook.

Good morning. Today is the first day of National School Counseling Week. Our focus for the week is “Helping Students Reach for the Stars.”
Civil rights pioneer Harriet Tubman once said “Every dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world.
Your school counselor is here to help you explore your dreams and discover how to achieve them. All week in student services we will have cards you can complete and have hung on the bulletin board in Student Services to share how your counselor has helped you “Reach for the Stars.” Please stop by before school, after school or on your way to lunch.
Remember, Ms. Heidgen is your 8th grade Counselor, Ms. Neece is your 7th grade Counselor and Ms. Webb is your 6th grade counselor.
Make today great!
