Magnet Families,
Happy Friday! As yesterday was the last day to submit assignments, we've officially made it to the end of the school year! Thank you to everyone who participated in our End of the Year Awards and Celebration Virtual Assembly last Thursday. If you missed it or want to share it with your family, the recording is available hereRMSST End of Year Awards Celebration.mp4
The RCPS Board of Education issued a proclamation last night declaring next week Senior Week! RMSST students have the unique opportunity to participate in the Adulting 101 Virtual Conference next week. Ms. Cobb took the feedback you provided and built a whole week full of engaging sessions lead by notable professionals and Magnet alumni. Seniors can learn more and find the links at Adulting 101 - Senior Week Wellness Activity.pdf
We will also be celebrating throughout next week by sharing highlights and insights from the Class of 2020 via @RockdaleMagnet on Twitter and Facebook. Further, Camera Club continues to post their senior shout outs with favorite quotes and memories online at https://www.instagram.com/rmsstcamera/?hl=en
One award that came in too late to celebrate last Thursday was Georgia Scholars. Magnet has 6 of the only 202 Georgia Scholars in the entire state! Congratulations to Gloria Bradley, Sarah Burkey, Carly Kimpling, Sarah Goldgar, Abigail Oser, and Candy Zheng! 
Do you know a rising 5th-8th grader who'd enjoy STEAM Camp? We have an incredible group of student counselors planning a virtual STEAM camp for June 1st-5th. Please forward this registration link with families who might be interested. The pre-recorded sessions are free with parents asked to donate if students participate in the Live sessions. Campers must register by May 20th. 

Congratulations to all of our Advanced Placement students who took exams this week and good luck to everyone taking exams next week! Thank you for challenging yourself with this opportunity to earn college credit! 
A huge thank you to our Peer Mentors who hosted over 85 participants today during their "Welcome to High School" Meet & Greet with the rising 9th grade students. I am so proud of all of our student leaders and teachers who have adapted to continue creating memorable experience online during this time. 
Report cards will be posted to the Infinite Campus Portal on May 29th.
Seniors, please continue to refer to the guidance I've shared previously that is also posted on our website  about  pick-up of items on June 17th and events for graduation week. 

9th-11th graders, the plan at this time is for students to return Magnet textbooks and empty lockers during open house. If you have an item at school that you'd like to retrieve earlier, please email me directly to arrange a time for pick-up after June 17th. 

All families, please continue using rockdaleschools.org/covid19 for the latest updates from RCPS including information about summer lunch routes. 
I will likely not email weekly during the summer, but will reach out as there is information to share. If you need me, you can email at anytime during the summer or call my cell phone at 404-710-4077. 
Thank you for your continued support. Have a safe and wonderful summer! 
Amanda Dyann Baskett
Director, Rockdale Magnet School for Science and Technology
