Dear 8th grade families, I'm happy to announce that River Forest Middle School will host a live 8th grade graduation inside RF this year! Here are the important details: Date: Tuesday, June 8th Time: 10am Location: River Forest High School Gymnasium Who: All 8th grade students (remote and in person) Tickets: maximum 2 per student Pick Up: Tickets can be picked up beginning Monday, May 24th in the main office In order to safely meet the requirements of the Lake County Health Department and the River Forest Return to Learn Plan, students will be seated 3-6 feet apart on folding chairs on the gym floor. Parents/guardians are asked to sit together, but distanced from other families on either side of the gym bleachers. A strict limit of 2 tickets per student will be enforced. Per the Lake County Health Department and the River Forest Return to Learn Plan, all attendees must wear a mask inside River Forest. Dress: Students are encouraged to dress up for the event. No jeans or shorts will be allowed All 8th grade students in attendance will receive a certificate of completion and any class specific awards in a file folder after their name is called---similar to a high school graduation. Unlike years past, we will announce the recipients of awards, but not receive awards one at a time. The entire ceremony will last approximately 45 minutes. Parents may sign their 8th grader out after the completion of the ceremony. Bottled water will be available. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me. Thank you, Randy Horka, RFMS Principal
St. Joseph's Carmelite Home in East Chicago experienced a fire this past Sunday and they need our help. They are a local resource that offers emergency shelter care, support for teen mothers and infant care, as well as residential care for children. If you are interested in helping out, you can drop off items listed in the attached image to any vestibule at a RF school. Let's come together as a community to help out!
