Principal's Welcome

Greetings RMS Students and Families!

I am thrilled to be going into my second academic year with the Richfield Middle School community. I am honored to lead a school with such persevering students, an extremely dedicated staff and supportive school community. I feel very fortunate to be part of this school and to support the students and families. 

As a principal, I believe in the power of communication. At RMS, we will continue to prioritize the voice of our students—listening to and valuing them and their experiences. Family and community partnerships are also a priority and I will continue this important work. Please contact me at any time with feedback, celebrations, questions or concerns. My door (or email) is always open.  

This year's focus will be around creating a school culture where everyone will thrive. We have increased our support classes and will be offering two new exploratory classes, theater and movement. And in addition, we are creating teams within our RMS community. 

We are hoping that this school year will look similar to what school has looked like in past years. We will work hard to ensure your scholar has a positive learning experience and feels that they are a member of our school community. Our first few of school will focus on onboarding scholars to RMS, we hope that with the intentionality of the first week we can hit the ground running on Monday, September 12. 

Thank you for entrusting us with your children and partnering with us to ensure they learn, grow and excel. Go Spartans!

In Partnership,
Erica Barlow
