Rene Rost Middle School is not just a school.  We are a Pirate Community!  Our community has a wonderful opportunity to grow together socially, emotionally, and acadmically.  In order to get the most out of your time here at RMS, we encourage all students to get involved in our school!

How can your child get involved?  RMS provides many clubs, organizations, and sports to participate in.  Our school has Band, 4-H, Beta Club, Chorus, Cheerleading, Football, Basketball, Baseball, Softball, and Track.  These opportunities allow students to broaden their talents and experiences, learn more about themselves, and grow together as a Pirate Community. 

Why should students get involved?
1.Academic subjects and extra-curricular activities complement each other and develop a well-rounded, socially skilled, and healthier student. (eduflow)
2.Regular physical activity in childhood and adolescence improves strength and endurance, helps build healthy bones and muscles, helps control weight, reduces anxiety and stress, increases self-esteem, and may improve blood pressure and cholesterol levels. (CDC)
3.Students experience leadership opportunities that help them grow into well-rounded adults. ( 
4.Activities expand interactions among students, who are likely to interact with others who are different from them. Thus, opportunities to experience diversity are enhanced.( 
5.An extracurricular activity might even have the effect of “recharging” the brain after a day of rigorous schoolwork, allowing students to return to homework assignments with a refreshed mind.
6.Students can also use these activities to explore interests they’ve never encountered, exposing students to a more diverse range of interests in students.

We also welcome all Pirates to come out and support our clubs, organizations, and sports.  We will announce on the calendar whenever there are events that any Pirate can attend!
