The Golden Valley Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Commission (DEIC) is holding its annual Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. (MLK) Human Rights Contest for youth. This contest is open to all Robbinsdale Area School students in grades K-12.
We are committed to academic achievement, accomplished through the lens of equity.
Meals will no longer be free for families unless they qualify for educational benefits.
We offer many academic, athletic and service opportunities for students of all grades.
Counseling Staff help to guide early adolescent students through their middle school years.
We are asking all families to complete an Educational Benefits application. By completing an application, families may qualify for free or reduced-price meals.
Students and families can enjoy two concerts at 7 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 8.
An amazing way to say thank you in this time of gratitude and giving is to help stock the shelves of the Plymouth Middle School Holiday ROAR store. The WEB (where everyone belongs) leaders run a special marketplace where kids can purchase gifts for friends, siblings and family members, using PAWs, and the store is fully stocked with items that are donated by the community.
Winter concerts are coming up! Check out our school's calendar for events Plymouth Students might be performing in over the next month!
You might hear from your child that their class was held in the Cafeteria or Media Center on occasion. This is due to the substitute teacher shortage being experienced across Minnesota and in many places across the country. Students are supervised by administration and other school staff in a larger space. Most coursework is posted for students on Schoology with directions for engaging in new learning, completing assignments, or studying for upcoming tests. Please reach out to your child's teachers if you have questions about how learning and assignments are handled in their absence.
We also ask you to consider joining our community as a substitute teacher. Our families and close community members often make the best substitutes due to their close connections with our community. Check out opportunities in the human resources section of our district website.
Did you know there is a "Tools for Families" resource page on the district website with many tutorials for families? Visit Tools for Families - Robbinsdale Area Schools (rdale.org) to see what you might be missing! Can't find information you are looking for at this time? More tutorials are being added as we receive questions. Submit a question or suggestion on "Let's Talk" to request a tutorial to be made for families. Let us know what you need!
The certificates for Quarter 1 Honor Roll are printed and will be handed out to students soon. We still have six more weeks left of Quarter 2. Please continue to check Schoology and check in with your student as to how they are doing in their classes so far this quarter.
PMS staff will be nominating Students of the Month starting in December. Students are chosen by their grade level and allied teachers for going above and beyond in demonstrating Respect, Organization, Attentiveness, and Responsibility. Look for the nominations to be announced soon!
The PMS ROAR Store is up and running! A special thanks to our WEB leaders, WEB coordinators, and our PPA for all the support in getting the ROAR Store organized. Students have the option every other Friday to purchase items from the ROAR store. We hope to continue adding items to the store throughout the year. Coming up next... the PMS Holiday Shop. More information will be shared soon.
The region is experiencing a winter storm today, Nov. 29, 2022. As a result, Robbinsdale Area Schools will conduct a staggered early release. In addition, all afternoon and evening activities are canceled.
Sometimes Robbinsdale Area Schools may be forced to close school or shift to e-learning due to extreme temperatures or significant snowfall.
To support students who need extra practice and skill building in Robbinsdale, 14 tutors are needed throughout the district. If you or someone you know is interested in helping students build their reading, math or early literacy/numeracy skills, you’re sure to make a difference.
Have you heard about PAWS?
PAWS are small tickets students are given by staff for demonstrating one or more of our ROAR characteristics. ROAR stands for Respectful, Organized, Attentive, and Responsible. Students can save up PAWS they've earned and spend them on Freezie Pop Fridays, the ROAR store, or the annual Holiday Shop. Look for more ways we celebrate our amazing students in upcoming newsletters!
As the temperatures drop, flu and winter colds become more prevalent. We ask you and your family to practice safety protocols.
