The Rim Country Middle School website www.rimcountrymiddleschool.com has been upgraded so students can now access about 4,600 accelerated reading books.
The fall sports schedule has also been added to the athletics page on the website, and the Stanford 9 test results and analysis should be added sometime this week, RCMS Principal Frank Larby said. The analysis will show how middle school students are doing, and will tie into goals adopted by the school this year.
As part of the school's Words of Wisdom program, short character-based messages are being broadcast over the school's video system on a daily basis this year. So far, teachers have been featured speaking about such topics as the value of an education, and the importance of honesty and responsibility.
Larby is looking for parents who are willing to video tape a similar segment.
"I think it is important for the kids to see all members of the community promoting good character," he told parents.
To tape a segment, call 474-4511, or e-mail the principal at firstname.lastname@example.org.
