She currently also serves as Department Chair for her department. She is a student-centered educator with a tireless work ethic. Students have come to expect quality lessons and full utilization of instructional minutes. She is an advocate for students, parents, and colleagues.

Our 8th grade farewell is just around the corner. On Tuesday, June 2 from 4-6:30 the staff at RFMS will say goodbye to the class of 2024. The drive around "reverse parade" will take place between the hours of 4 and 6:30. Don't worry, it is not a 2 and a half hour ceremony. Families are encouraged to come any time between those hours. The parade circle will be located in the RF Football parking lot. Students will receive any awards from their academic teachers, winter sports awards from Mr. Wielgus, and receive their official Certificate of Completion from Mr. Horka and Mr. Milenkoff at the end. In practicing social distancing, students and families must stay in their vehicles and staff will only be able to take pictures with students next to their cars. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the main office.
Attention any student who borrowed a chromebook from the middle or high school or needs to return school related items: There will be two dates , Friday, May 29 and Monday, June 1. Both days the times for drop off will be from 9am to 1:30pm and will be at the middle school entrance by the MPR (closest to the river.) If you borrowed a chromebook please make sure to return the chromebook and the charger. Any high school student who is enrolled in summer school may keep their chromebook to use throughout the summer session.
The high school will be offering summer school this year and it begins Monday, June 8 and runs until Friday, July 10. HS summer school will be online using our A+ software, the same system we use for credit recovery. Summer school is open to any high school student who has failed a previous class and is looking to regain a credit. Email up to two choices to Mr. Moore at email@example.com. in.us or Mr. Horka at firstname.lastname@example.org

Middle School Families, The RF custodial staff has carefully removed the contents of each locker and placed those contents into bags for easy pickup. On Wednesday, May 13 from 9 to 2, parents can pickup their student's belongings in front of the middle school entrance (by the river) near the MPR/Middle School Gym. This is for all 6th, 7th, and 8th grade students. HS students will go to the front office section of the building by the Ingot. Only legal guardians can pickup locker bags unless a signed note from a parent/guardian expresses otherwise. No exceptions can be made. In an effort to remain contactless, students/families will not be allowed into the building. As each car arrives, a staff member will place the locker bag on a table for pickup. If you have any questions, please email me at email@example.com Thank you, Mr. Horka, RFMS Principal
