Helpful Tips for Parents

River Dell Counselors encourage parents to be active participants in their student's education. In addition to checking grades in Genesis, it is important that parents review and monitor their student's homework each night. Teachers update their websites regularly and post all assignments and assessments on their "Week At A Glance". You can find this information by clicking on the "Staff Directory" tab located at the top of the RDMS website. If you have trouble accessing this site, feel free to contact your student's teacher via phone or e-mail. As always, counselors can also assist you!  

As your primary liaison between home and school, Ms. Ross and Mrs. Binder welcome any inquiries and recommend contacting us for a meeting with your child's teachers any time throughout the school year!

RDMS 101 and Summer BBQ 

This year, Ms. Ross and Mrs. Binder brought the RDMS 101 program to over 200 students the week before school started! 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, OneNote, Genesis and more! Following the presentation, students walked around 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 School Counselor.
