Parent Center Corner, Geraldine Ray

Come on out and visit our Parent Center at RLMJH. By visiting the center you will receive parenting literature and learning tools for you and your child. Our goal is to make a difference in the lives of children and provide support to parents. I am still looking forward to seeing you at workshops.

Parents, if you have any particular areas you would like to have a workshop on please let me know. Remember, we have different ways you can be involved in your child education. Such as, Active Parents, Remind, PTO/PTA meetings, school events. In addition, you may volunteer.

You may reach me through e-mail at My hours are: Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday’s from 7:00 A.M. to 4:00 P.M. I will adjust my schedule as needed.   “With us plus you, there’s nothing our students can’t do”!

Academic Coach’s Corner   

We are currently in review and reteach mode to ensure we meet our end of the year goal. We ask that students are at school each day, on time and eager to learn. We have our brain bowl on April 18, 2019, at Ruleville Middle School at 6 pm. This bowl will allow students to compete academically to demonstrate their knowledge in math and language arts. Please come out to help us cheer the students on. We will send more information out soon about purchasing brain bowl t-shirts and identifying the participants. Again, thank you for your continued support and we look forward to celebrating the success of Merritt Middle students, parents, faculty, and staff in the future.   

Thank you for all your support
