RCS and the Rochester Area Ministerial Association are very proud of the four students who read their winning essays and poems at the Annual Martin Luther King Day Ceremony on January 12th at St. Pauls United Methodist Church.  There were 87 entries this year.  The four students, representing elementary, middle, and high school spoke eloquently and proudly! Click here to view the winning entries for the Annual MLK Essay and Poetry Contest

Ron Ritchhart, Senior Researcher at Harvard Project Zero, was invited to Reuther Middle School on October 28, 2013, to share his Visible Thinking research with the parent community. As Rochester Community School teachers continue to embed thinking routines in their classrooms, it is our hope that parents will encourage additional Visible Thinking discussions and routines at home as well.  View the video below and visit Reuther's website to learn more about the "9 Apps for Parents".
