After much preparation, this week RMS students proudly presented Leadership Day 2013 to many gracious guests.
Visitors were greeted by many welcome signs created by students in "The Wall's Speak" workshop and in the RMS talented band.
Our greeters checked guests in and distributed welcome packets in our Welcome Center.
Our students and teachers worked hard to create an incredible Expo
featuring 30 different booths, each highlighting various school projects and programs. As visitors circulated the room taking in all the amazing displays, our students did an excellent job explaining and answering any questions regarding their respective booths.
The day concluded with a closing assembly
featuring the RMS choir, along with the entire RMS student body,
singing our theme song, "Anyone Can Make a Difference."

Eli Sandhaus (7th grade) served as a post leadership day news correspondent - below is his article:
Leadership Day 2013 was a smashing success! One guest compared the experience to "better than Godiva chocolate!" Rabbi Palgon was thoroughly impressed by all the boys incredible performances over the course of the day. I personally enjoyed watching Noah Berger working all the technology during the program. Mrs. Berio experienced her first Leadership Day and said that she was impressed with how all the boys participated in the event. "I already cannot wait until next year's Leadership Day", Mrs. Berio stated with excitement. It looks like everyone's hard work paid off.
