Principal Welcome

Mrs. Gates

Dear River Bluff Families,

Whether you are a continuing on your journey through middle school, or new to River Bluff Middle School, our outstanding teachers and staff would like to extend a warm welcome. In the pursuit of academic excellence, River Bluff Middle School offers a wide-range of opportunities for students in academics, athletics, and the arts. Our teachers and staff believe that ensuring success for all students comes from having high expectations for learning, in a positive, safe, inclusive and nurturing school environment.

River Bluff Middle School's educational programming is built around a core philosophy of personal exploration. Our students have the opportunity to explore a variety of areas of interest in Foreign Language, Art, Music, Physical Fitness and Wellness, Science/Technology and Engineering, Family and Consumer Science, and Business Fundamentals. Additionally, our students choose to participate in one or more of twenty-four co-curricular activities to learn leadership skills, teamwork, and find areas of personal interest.

We are glad to have you with us this year, and we want to assure you that we will do our best to help your child experience academic, social and emotional growth. We would appreciate your input and involvement. We know that actively engaged families are a key to River Bluff's continued success. Families are encourage to participate in Working for Kids, River Bluff's parent group, and other various school and district projects, committees, and groups.

At River Bluff Middle School we all follow "The C.R.E.W. Way" as we focus on each student becoming a member of the CREW Team:"We Choose to be … Respectful of all, Engaged in safety, and Willing to accept responsibility."

Please feel free to stop by our school at any time to see our CREW Pride!
