 On behalf of Rural Retreat Middle School Faculty & Staff,

Welcome to the 2021-2022 School Year!

Without a doubt, we have experienced two very challenging years in our schools, in our homes, and in our world.  So, as we look toward the future, 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 at:
