National School Counseling week continues today, with another message from our counselors.  Our goal is to help you develop new skills that will lead to your success.  Even though you may not be successful the first time you try something, ask for help from others to gain new insight.  Hearing something in a different way can make all the difference.  Seek out others when you are struggling.  A new perspective may be all you need.  At RMS we are “Better Together”.  We can help each other through any challenge.

RMS enjoy your small treat this morning and remember, “If you’ve hit a SOUR PATCH, your school counselors are here for you!”
