  • Fall Registration

    Please bring your RGMS student/s to one of our two fall registration times, TUESDAY, August 22 from Noon-6:30 PM or WEDNESDAY, August 23 from 9:00 AM-Noon. Students will receive their schedules and locker assignments, have a chance to find classrooms, and parents can fill out forms and take care of fees. This is a great time to help your child get comfortable with the layout of the school. We will make changes right then and there on locker assignments and class schedules if they are not the best as assigned. If you miss the on-site registration event, please plan to come in as soon as you can thereafter. And, please don't change vacation plans to make this event! We will be here when you are ready. Class schedules will not be finalized until noon on Tuesday, so please don't look on Synergy until then!

If you have changes to the forecasting sheet submitted in the spring, please email them to Opening lockers can be a challenge for new students. Once students have their locker assignments, they are welcome to come to school and practice opening them. This link has a list of links that can help demonstrate opening a combination lock. Buying a padlock can be a good source for practicing, too.
