CRMS uses a rotating schedule throughout the week. This provides students and teachers with the opportunity to interact at different times throughout the day. The rotating schedule improves student engagement and outcomes.
Student Drop-Off & Pick-Up
Students may enter the building starting at 7:15 a.m. Students should enter through the main entrance and proceed to the cafeteria. They will proceed to class at 7:30 when bus riders enter the building.
Please drop students of in the teacher parking lot at the sidewalk leading to the building (please do not use the bus loop for morning drop-off).
Students who ride the bus will enter through their assigned door:
- 8th Grade will enter the building at the exterior gym door, and exit using the 7th grade entrance.
- 7th Grade will enter/exit the door between the gym and office entrance.
- 6th Grade will enter/exit the front, office entrance.
Please line up along the curb to pick up students in the afternoon. Please wait for staff to dismiss bus traffic first before exiting the campus.
In keeping with our goals for a safe and productive learning environment, we would like to remind everyone about a few of our policies for the school year.
Positive Behavioral Interventions & Supports (PBIS)
CRMS is proud to be a 2018 “Gold” Level Maryland PBIS School!
PBIS (Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports) is a process for creating safer and more effective schools. PBIS is a systems approach to enhancing the capacity of schools to educate all children by developing research-based, school-wide, and classroom discipline systems. The process focuses on improving a school's ability to teach and support positive behavior for all students. Rather than a prescribed program, PBIS provides systems for all schools to design, implement, and evaluate effective school-wide, classroom, non-classroom, and student-specific discipline plans. PBIS includes school-wide procedures and processes intended for:
- ALL students, ALL staff, and ALL in settings:
- Non-classroom settings within the school environment
- Individual classrooms and teachers
- Individual student supports for the estimated 3-7% of students who present the most challenging behaviors
PBIS is NOT a program or curriculum. It IS a team-based process for systematic problem solving, planning, and evaluation. It is an approach to creating an environment within which school-based teams of educators are trained in:
- Systems change
- Effective behavior management principles and practices;
Applications of research-validated instruction and management practices
School-Wide Behavioral Expectations
We strive to support all students and staff by promoting positive behaviors on a school-wide basis. It is reinforced daily in all areas of our school. We do this by providing examples for each of the four expectations:
"Keepin' it R.E.A.L." Code of Conduct
Stamps are given to students who get caught following the Code of Conduct. Staff can give a Stamp to students if they catch them doing something positive. (It doesn't have to be your student.)
- A Stamp on their Paw Card is given only when it is earned.
- Students can earn an incentive based on the number of Stamps on their card.
