A Message from the Principal

  •  

    Dear students, parents, community members, and visitors, 

    Welcome to Readington Middle School - home of the Vikings! I am thrilled to start the 2022-2023 school year with you all and hope that you all had a restful summer. I look forward to working with you this year so that each child finds joy, purpose and success in their middle school years. 

    The middle school years are developmentally vital and exciting! It is a time of tremendous growth and change. We believe strongly in working together, at school and home, to address the academic, social, and emotional growth of our students.  We believe in a middle school model. This model has teachers and staff working together at each grade level to create interdisciplinary educational opportunities connected to academic standards that allow for high achievement and exploratory learning. We believe that every child can find success within our halls and walls. 

    To help our students succeed, our counseling department at Readington Middle School is made up of dedicated school counselors that are focused on assisting students and their families. Our counselors loop with students in all three grades so they can help guide them through the complexities that are unique to middle school. If a student needs help, our counselors are often the first place people turn to for help. 

    RMS, as we call it, is a caring learning community. The students will experience a variety of educational experiences and offerings, including:

    • Language Arts Literacy block
    • Science
    • Social Studies 
    • Math
    • World Language
    • PE and Health
       

    Students will have the opportunity to experience various electives through their time at RMS. In addition, students may also elect to take part in the band, orchestra or choir programs! Our musical groups have distinguished themselves through their outstanding performances in concerts and in competitions. We also have courses that are specifically designed to meet the educational program needs of our students.

    We want our students to be given an opportunity to try out new things and explore their passions. RMS offers students many different clubs and a full athletics program to become involved with. Students are encouraged to get involved in the many activities that we offer. Participating in extracurricular activities is a great way to meet new people, have fun, and create some memories that will last a lifetime. 

    Readington Middle School is a wonderful school environment surrounded by an educational community that is supportive of the development of each student. We have an amazing staff and we are lucky to have you and your families with us this year at RMS. We look forward to working with you to achieve a successful year so that all students find joy and purpose in their educational journey and that they do so with some Viking Pride!

    Sincerely,

    .

    Mr. Timothy Charleston 
    Principal, Readington Middle School
