Weekly Update - 2/8/18

Head of School's Message

“Conscious will is a power which develops with use and activity.  We must aim at cultivating the will.” -    Maria Montessori

Dear RMS Parents,

Only two quick reminders this week. -    Please help us by taking a moment to complete your re-enrollment and agreement setup if you haven’t already. This simple step on your part has a HUGE impact in helping the school plan and budget the coming year. So THANK YOU in advance for your help here. -    MARDI GRAS is THIS WEEKEND!!!   Can’t wait to see you all there!

God bless,



Re-enrollment has officially begun. By now, you should have received an invitation to re-enroll directly from TADS. If you have not received this email, please check your spam folder and then contact Kristina Fox in the office if unable to locate.

As always, you will need to submit a $100.00 tuition deposit per child ($50.00 for RMS Atrium and Parent/Infant). This year, we have streamlined the process so after you have enrolled each of your children, you will be led directly to your payment agreement.

Because we are at or near capacity, in order to secure your child(ren)'s spot, the enrollment form, the deposit and the payment agreement will need to be set up prior to the March 30th deadline, after which open enrollment begins.

Should you encounter any problems with the forms, don't hesitate to contact TADS Parent Support at 800.477.8237, Monday through Friday 7 to 8 Central time.

Carpool Reminder

As a reminder, to make sure our carpool line moves quickly and safely, if you need to conduct any business with a member of the staff or you are waiting for a child, please pull around into the parking lot. This will allow the line to move up so that children will not need to be walking near moving cars. Thanks so much for you help with this.

Upcoming Events

  • 2/9/18 - Mardi Gras Working Meeting
  • 2/10/18 - RMS Gala and Mardi Gras Auction
  • 2/14/18 - Ash Wednesday - Mass at All Saints 8:30 AM



Don’t forget to order scrip weekly at www.shopwithscrip.com and drop off your cash or checks by Tuesday. Mr Garvey will collect them curbside or you can put them directly into the SCRIP box in the office. If you haven’t set up an account yet, our enrollment code is 8F91287E14129.

Remember that if you want to earn that $300 quickly, it is best to set up a PrestoPay account because you can purchase and use electronic SCRIP immediately from your handheld device or home computer, no more dealing with dropping off checks and waiting a week for your cards to arrive.

Forgot to place an order? No problem, there is a SCRIP binder in the office with an array of cards for purchase. Simply go into the office and Kristina will help you through the purchase process. Any questions or problems please contact Rosanne Garvey at rosanne505@verizon.net or 703-447-9229.

February Pizza Orders

The January Pizza Form is now available. Orders are due with payment no later than the Wednesday before each Friday you want pizza. The form is below or always at the top of the Weekly Updates.

February Pizza Form 

From the Box Top Coordinator

Please collect any Box Tops you may have and submit them to anyone at drop off or pick up or you can put them in the basket in the office for collection. Deadline for submission is Tuesday, Feb 20th. Please contact Michelle Clune at michelleclune@yahoo.com if you have any questions. Thank you!

Lost and Found

Our lost and found is overflowing, with many items that have been there since the beginning of the year. Please have your children check again before the end of January or stop by to see if you recognize anything. It is outside the Parent Lounge for easy access. We will be donating all the remaining items to charity the first week of February.

New Floater

We are pleased to announce the addition of Sofia Fusco to our RMS staff. Sofia is finishing up her Senior year at Christendom and will be joining us Monday, Wednesday and Friday as a floater to help provide support to all environments. Welcome Sofia!
