Dear Cobra Families,

As we enter this school year, I want to express to you that my deepest desire is to ensure that each of you has a very successful school year. For all scholars returning to Rosemary Middle School, welcome back! For those new to Rosemary Middle School, I welcome you into our Cobra family that will take you to the next level in your education.

The faculty and staff at RMS are very excited to support our scholars in accomplishing all their academic goals. We have amazing teachers at Rosemary Middle School who will provide scholars with everything they need to grow socially and academically. This year, we encourage everyone to rally around the theme of “Choosing Greatness”. You will be challenged to make it a “Great” day at RMS. Choosing to be great should be visible every day in the classroom and throughout the school. Parents, we need your commitment to ensure that your scholar is choosing to be great each and every day. The routines and expectations that are in place this school year will dictate their success. We ask parents to review with their scholar the school’s expectations and district discipline policies that were sent home on the first day of school. In addition, talk to them about consequences for level I behavioral misconduct that the administration will be following this school year. All level II and III consequences are outlined in the district’s handbook.

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

While it was our desire to have a full staff at the beginning of the 22-23 school year, our Chorus teacher resigned which has caused a vacancy at our school. We were able to secure a replacement; however, the teacher will not be in place until October. To start the year, we will have Mr. Anthony Holmes, who is one of our part-time instructional aide facilitate the chorus/general music class.

To all of our proud parents and caregivers, I invite you to model and partner with us throughout the school year as we instill greatness into our scholars. Research shows that scholars have the greatest possibility for success if support structures are in place at home. Therefore as a reminder, scholars are released to homeroom at 8:00 am and breakfast is served between 8:00 am until 8:20 am. Morning announcements begin at 8:20 am. Scholars will be considered tardy at 8:25 am. Our academic school day begins at 8:30 am until 3:30 pm.

Let’s make this school year your best year ever as a RMS cobra. If there is ever anything you need, please do not hesitate to contact Mr. Berry or myself.

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

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.
