Summer Letter to RMA Families with Upcoming School Year Dates

Dear New and Returning RMA Families, 
We hope that you are enjoying your summer with family and friends and are taking time to Sharpen Your Saws.  We are reaching out to all new and returning RMA students and families to share some important dates and information that will help you Be Proactive and prepare for the 2019-2020 school year.  As we embark on our third year, our staff is so excited to continue growing and refining the great Academic, Arts, and Leadership programming that we have established at Rowlett Middle Academy. 
We hope that your children are using their 7 Habits and are Putting First Things First by making time for their grade-level summer reading and math packets.  These activities will help ensure that students continue their academic momentum over the summer months. Please visit our school website to access information about the summer assignments as well as other important information including transportation, uniforms, and school supply lists.
