Helpful Tips for Parents & Students
    River Dell Counselors encourage parents to be active participants in their child's education. It is important that parents review and monitor their child's agenda book and homework each night, check teachers' websites on a regular basis, and contact teachers with any questions or concerns via phone or e-mail. 

    As your primary liaison between home and school, we welcome any inquiries and recommend contacting us for team meetings.
    RDMS 101 - Presentation to Students
    This year, Ms. Ross brought the RDMS 101 program to over 250 students! This exciting program is designed to help students take the guess work out of their first few days at RDMS.  Students learned about navigating their schedule, locker, clubs, activities, sports, School Wires, Genesis and more!  Following the presentation, students toured of the building, and practiced opening lockers. If you have questions about this program or would like to review what was discussed, please contact your child's Guidance Counselor.
