Athletic Offerings

Together in Teamwork

Dear Parents,
We are excited to bring back extracurricular and athletic activities to RMS in a safe and COVID-friendly way for the 2021-2022 school year. Outside the standard framework of any educational curriculum, there are endless opportunities for students to learn new skills and ignite new passions. Extracurricular activities are a vital element in any child’s development, often building on lessons and learnings that begin during school hours. During the fall semester we will offer art, music, ballet, running, and soccer. Please reach out to me with any questions you may have. 

Many thanks, 
Shanthi Wickramasinghe
