On behalf of Rural Retreat Middle School Faculty & Staff,

Welcome to the 2022-2023 school year!

We certainly hope that parents and students are looking forward to the year like the faculty and staff of RRMS. As we look toward the year, we are ready for this new beginning and exciting move forward.

This year RRMS students will:

  • begin the year with a fresh start.
  • mature, learn, grow and give their best effort. 
  • look towards building a brighter future for themselves.
This starts with:
  • good school attendance. 
  • accepting responsibility.
  • working to their full potential.
  • displaying respect for themselves, others, and their environment.

Take pride in being an RRMS Indian!!! You are talented, well rounded students and are going to be successful as long as you try to be the best you can be. I believe in each and every one of our students, as do our teachers.

So, let's get ready to see old friends & teachers, meet new friends & teachers and get back to school!

We hope to see you on Thursday, August 11th for our Parent/Student Visitation.  Times for visitation will be 1:00 PM-3:30 PM and 4:30 PM-7:00 PM.

**Attention Parents/Guardians, if this schedule conflicts with your schedule please call the school and set up an alternate time.
