Greetings Rugby families! This is John McDaris, Principal of Rugby Middle School. I am excited to extend an invitation to all families to join us for our Rugby Family Reunion on Thursday, August 19. We are excited to welcome everyone back to school and want to give you and your student the information you need to help your family transition smoothly back into our school.
The first event of the day is our 6th Grade Orientation. 6th grade students should plan to arrive at the main entrance of school by 8:00 am. From there, they will report to the gym and be assigned to an 8th grade student mentor who will guide them through a day of fun-filled activities, tours, and learning sessions designed to help prepare them for their first day of school. We also plan to provide a pizza lunch for all of our 6th grade students. Parents of 6th grade students should plan to return to school at 2:00 pm. Beginning at 2:00 pm, 6th grade students and families will meet with me, hear from our Rugby Engaged Parents group, meet their LEAD teacher, make necessary purchases for the year, and much more. This event will conclude at approximately 3:15 when we will have an ice cream truck and an opportunity to meet with all 6th grade teachers.
The second event is for all of our 7th and 8th grade students and parents. At this event, we will also have a time for students and families to meet with me, hear from our Rugby Engaged Partners group, meet their LEAD teacher, make necessary purchases for the year, and much more. Please plan to join us for ice cream and food trucks at these sessions. All 7th and 8th grade students and families with the last names A through K should plan to be at school at 4:00. The event for this group will conclude at approximately 5:00 with ice cream and food trucks. All 7th and 8th grade students and families with the last names L through Z should plan to be at school at 5:30. The event for this group will conclude approximately 6:30 with ice cream and food trucks. If you are unable to attend at your designated time, please let us know and we would be happy to make arrangements for you to attend one of the other sessions.
We look forward to seeing you at our family reunion!
