Score on Clemson's Biology Merit Exam
Fifteen REMMS students along with others from our district visited Clemson to take a college level exam. This is an annual, academic trip, but is also fun. Students in 7th-12th are invited because of their interest in science. Eighth grader DreQuez McFadden earned a third place award and seventh grader Abbigail Yates was listed for a second honorable mention finish. Congratulation and thanks to all who represented REMMS so well.

Reading Counts! at REMMS
"The more you read, the more things you will know.
The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.”
–– Dr. Suess
In order to promote independent reading as a part of our balanced literacy program at REMMS, all students are required to participate in the Reading Counts incentive program and will receive a grade for participation and completion. For the 3rd nine weeks, students must earn 25 points in order to receive a 100% project grade in their ELA class (click for grading rubrics).
In order to qualify for the school-wide incentive, students must also meet the following requirements in addition to earning 25 points: read at least four chapter books on or above their Lexile level and maintain a 80% (or higher) average on the Reading Counts tests.
*Please note: the ELA project grade for the nine weeks is based solely on the amount of Reading Counts points earned. The students' eligibility for the school-wide incentive is based on the number of points earned, in addition to the number of Lexile-appropriate chapter books read, and the testing average.
