Dear Cobra Families,

Welcome to the 2022-2023 school year. We hope each of you are enjoying your summer vacation. We are thrilled to welcome our rising 7th & 8th grade scholars & families back to a new school year of learning and growing and welcome our 6th grade scholars and parents to the Cobra family.

At Rosemary, we are striving to create a learning climate that encourages student achievement and fosters a positive learning community. The school’s administrators welcome and value your positive energy and dedication to excellence in education, and we look forward to working with you and your child(ren).

Our devoted staff is already planning and preparing for our scholars and our enthusiastic guidance team is available to assist you with registering your scholars if you are having trouble accessing the link online.

We are always seeking ways to add dedicated volunteers on our campus. There are many opportunities for you to contribute such as joining SIC (School Improvement Council) or volunteering around campus.

Finally, we sincerely believe in a school environment that is collaborative in nature and draws on the strengths of all stakeholders in striving for improving student outcomes. Working together makes a difference in the lives of our scholars. We look forward to working with all the wonderful scholars, parents, staff and members of the community to make this year a success.

Please continue reading below for some very important information about the upcoming school year.

L. Goodson, Principal & S. Berry, Asst. Principal

Back to School Information
Meet-N-Greet Block Party will be held in the gym on Thursday, August 11, 2022 from 5:00 pm – 7:00 pm for our 7th & 8th grade scholars. Parents and scholars will have the opportunity to meet their grade level teachers, get pertinent information, and pick-up their schedule.

Parents and scholars will visit different classrooms to learn about the expectations of being a middle school student at RMS. The orientation will end with a Q & A session with the administrative team.

Student Discipline/Behavior Code of Conduct
Cobra Scholars are encouraged to take responsibility for their own actions and academic performance. Emphasis is placed on the importance of each scholar working to his or her own ability level.
School-wide appropriate behaviors are expected as scholars are taught and expected to understand inappropriate behavior. We believe that when scholars make appropriate choices at school, it will generate scholarly success.
While it is our hope that all Cobra Scholars display appropriate behaviors at all times, the following consequences have been put into place at Rosemary Middle for inappropriate behaviors.
1st Referral – Conference with student and/or parent
2nd Referral – Assigned to ISS
3rd Referral – Assigned to ISS
4th Referral – Assigned to ISS
5th -10th Referral – OSS (Out of School Suspension)
11th Referral – Recommended for Expulsion
Please take time to speak with your student about respecting the rights of others to learn in a safe environment.

Dress Code
Scholar dress is expected to be appropriate at all times; therefore, the dollar bill rule has been put in place to ensure length and width of shorts, skirts, tank tops, etc. are school appropriate. (Dollar Bill Rule – the width of a dollar from the top of your knee cap to where the bill ends determines how short the clothes can be).
Jeans with holes at the upper thigh, larger than 1 inch are not permitted. Hats, caps, the head covering part of the hoodie, and bandannas are not to be worn in the building or class except during special spirit days. If there is a medical or religious reason for wearing a hat or head covering inside the building, parents should contact administration.
Young ladies are allowed to carry a small cross body (no larger than a wallet) or wristlet for personal items.

Cell Phone Policy
Scholars are not allowed to use cell phones on campus for any purpose, including receiving calls, taking pictures or text messaging. If you desire that your child carry a phone for non-school time emergency purposes, the phone must be turned off and kept at the student’s own risk in his or her book bag. Any violations of this policy, including having the phone ring or emit any noise, will result in discipline.
First violation: Cell phone will be returned to student at the end of the day.
Second violation: Parent must pick up cell phone and the policy will be explained.
Third violation: The cell phone will be confiscated by the administration for thirty (30) days.
Fourth violation: The cell phone will be confiscated until the end of the semester.

Summer Reading
Rising 6th grade scholars that didn’t receive their summer reading book before school ended can still pick up their book Monday – Thursday, from 8:00 am – 4:00 pm.
It is strongly recommended that all scholars (grades 6-8) complete the summer reading assignment that will be returned to their ELA teacher in order to receive a grade for 1st quarter. If scholars need a copy of the summer reading assignment they can stop by the main office to pick one up.
