Here at Richards Middle School, we honor the building and our students by promoting being safe, responsible, and respectful. RMS is comprised of many pieces, and our most valuable resources are our students, families, and our staff. Together we will accomplish great things during the school year. “Honor the Castle” is our vehicle of how we aim to connect our RMS family together. The intention of the saying is purposeful to relate to all facets of RMS. The saying “Honor the Castle” is something that we can rally behind, reminding us that our RMS community is made up of many components, and we make one another better together. We believe that every single person that comes in contact with RMS has the same common goal and that it is our students’ success.
*Why The word “Honor”- Honor is the currency of elevation and one cannot be an extension of a place they do not honor.
*Why the word “Castle”- It is a respect to our nickname “Knights” but also relates to the purpose of a castle during medieval times being “a large building fortified for protection.” We want our RMS stakeholders to feel that Richards Middle School is home and a place worth valuing.
