  • Fall Registration

    FAQs: What is Fall Registration and Why Attend?

    Please bring your RGMS student/s to one of our two fall registration times, Wednesday, August 15 from Noon-6:30 PM or Thursday, August 16 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 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.

    Monday, August 27, is Jump Start Day, a special day for RGMS students in grade 6. All students attend on August 28. Students will learn to manage their school supplies, find classes, navigate lunch and meet their new peers and teachers. This is a great way to start middle school and it goes a long way toward easing transition anxiety.

  • Lunch Money Deposit

    RGMS would love it if parents would put money in their school meals account. We are in the hole by quite a lot. While we will not deny a child a meal, it does weigh heavily on us when we have outstanding debts. See the link to deposit funds at https://www.schoolcafe.com/ or send cash or a check to the school kitchen before school begins in the morning.

  • Find Your School: Interactive Map

    Are you sure where your child will go to school next year in PPS? You can use this SCHOOL FINDER, which is an interactive map. Just put in your address in the box in the upper left and it will tell you schools for this year and next year.
  • Lockers

    Lockers are all personally assigned by the principal at Robert Gray in order to make our students comfortable and happy. They will be given out starting on August 15 at fall registration. If you have changes to the forecasting sheet submitted in the spring, please email them to bmadison@pps.net. 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.
