Monthly Newsletters

March 31st, 2022

Hello Rayen Early College Middle School Families!

    I have to apologize for missing February's newsletter and being so late for March! To say the least, it has been a busy 2 months! Our momentum over these past two months has really picked up! February was spent working hard preparing for our state testing, which is in full swing at this time. February was also host to our school-wide Black History Month presentation. Be sure to check out the video on our homepage! This March we have been busy preparing for, and taking our Ohio State Test. We are also working hard preparing for our upcoming play, Frozen, as well as our Spring Fine and Performing Arts presentations. More information will be forthcoming regarding both events.

    I can't believe we have less than 35 days left in the school year! This year has flown by! Our  Guidance Counselors are working hard getting applications for Youngstown Early College High School ready for our 8th graders, as well as assisting some of our eighth graders with applications for the OSU Young Scholars Program. We also have been recruiting for next year and are happy to say that we have many new recruits who have applied to our school, as we continue to uphold the legacy of Rayen Early College Middle School. 

    We are truly starting to miss our 8th graders as we send them off to high school, with over 70 of our 8th grade students applying to YECHS! We are excited to start preparing for their graduation/dinner and dance! More info. to come! We are also excited as we plan our last day Carnival to culminate a great year! Until then - I plan on enjoying every last second that I can with these amazing students, teachers and staff here at RECMS!

    Remember, my door is always open if you need anything! Let’s finish strong! And as always, GO TIGERS!
