Food Service Support for Families
The holidays can be a rough time of year for some people and life can throw your family curve balls you don’t see coming. So don’t forget you can apply for free and reduced meals at anytime of the school year when financial circumstances change. Feel free to stop by your school's cafeteria and pick up an application and see if you apply today. You can also click here to visit the Food Services home for more information or to print applications.

RRPS Aims for Zero Waste
Every day is a recycling day at RRPS! Please consider joining RRPS in its efforts to aim for zero waste in its school cafeterias, classrooms, offices and athletic events.  Zero waste is a philosophy that encourages the redesign of resource life cycles so that all products are reused. No trash is sent to landfills and incinerators.  See how one southwestern campus is using “aversion” and “diversion” to reach its goals.  Click here to read about UNM's efforts.
Parents: Questions about Eureka Math?
Have questions about how we are teaching math? Click here to get answers and tips for parents about the Eureka Math program and Common Core. Also, here is a great video that explains how we are teaching math differently, to help students THINK and solve problems with math, not just memorizing steps!
Eagle Ridge Middle Announcements
CHS Athletic Events
 Students who attend athletic events at Cleveland High School must now show their Eagle Ridge ID along with their tickets in order to enter CHS events.  Please remember that you are representing Eagle Ridge Middle School when you are attending events at other schools.  Make a good impression!
  The Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers has posted sample test items for every grade on the testing platform students will use when taking the field test later this spring. 
Teachers, students, parents and others will be able to engage with the sample items using computer-based tools such as drag-and-drop, multiple select, text highlighting, and an equation builder. PARCC also released online tutorials that demonstrate how students will navigate the test; how to use the computer-based tools; and features that make the test more accessible for all students, including those with disabilities and English learners. 
To get a true understanding of the range of rigor, item types and functionalities, users are encouraged to try out items across all grades and to provide feedback. The sample items will not be scored.  In reading and writing, students will have to show they can read and understand complex passages, write persuasively, and present findings based on research. In math, they will have to show their work and demonstrate they understand a concept, rather than simply memorize a formula; they will have to apply math knowledge to real-world problems. 
The sample items are available at www.parcconline.org/computer-based-samples.

Parents: How do I register on our ERMS web site?
ERMS Visitor's Policy

Parents are always welcome to visit and observe their child's classes. Any parent or visitor must first check in at the front office and receive a visitor's pass. We ask that you give the teacher 24 hours notice before visiting the classroom. While this may seem restrictive to some parents, it is our way of protecting your children from strangers coming onto our campus. If you need information from your child's teacher, please don't hesitate to schedule an appointment for a conference. This can be done by calling the school or e-mailing your child’s teacher directly.

Students may not bring friends or relatives to school to visit for the day. Also, for safety considerations, brothers and sisters may not come to school.
