Principal Message

Dear Parents and Guardians,

My name is Adrian Fonville, the Principal at River Road Middle School.

We, the Administrative team, teachers and staff at River Road Middle School, are excited about the upcoming 2019-2020 school year!

We would like to welcome our new 6th graders to our great school, and welcome back our new 7th and 8th graders.

We will have fun, work hard in the classroom, and focus on academic, social, and emotional needs of every child!

This year promises to be an academically challenging but rewarding year for our students. They will learn key organizational skills, self-discipline, and development of their hidden talents that will be nurtured throughout the school year through clubs and school activities.

It will take a team effort between parents, the community, the teachers and staff to help our Scholars succeed.

We, the staff at River Road, encourage parents and guardians to take the time to visit the school, check on our scholars, and help them thrive and succeed in their academics.

I constantly remind students that “everything counts” toward their success. Their classwork, quizzes, and ALL tests determine their success in the school environment. I ask that you please monitor your child and their learning.

Finally, I do ask that parents and guardians support our school discipline policies. I will maintain a safe and inviting environment for all students to learn and grow!

At River Road Middle School, we will continue to focus on the following:

One Belief -All RRMS students will achieve excellence in education.

One Focus -All RRMS students will achieve the highest individual academic growth possible through intentional and meaningful classroom instruction.

One Goal - All students will “Believe, Achieve, and Succeed.”

Thanks again for your support, and we look forward to a great school year!!

Students will turn off their cell phones and place them in their lockers before entering their classrooms. They will be permitted to get their cell phones out of their lockers at the end of the day. Since all grade levels will be 1 to 1 with Chromebooks, they will be able to conduct research, and complete assignments, on their Chromebooks as well. Students will be allowed to use the classroom or front office phones for important and emergency communication with parents/guardians.
