There is Opportunity in Crisis!

A wise man once told me the Chinese use two brush strokes to write the word crisis. One brush stroke stands for danger; the other for opportunity. In a crisis, be aware of danger - but recognize the opportunity. As we find ourselves on the eve of an opening of school where our students are being asked to do something less than ideal, we recognize there is opportunity in the midst of this crisis. In the River Rouge School District, we embrace this moment because we are certain the skills that our students acquire during this disruption will undoubtedly be helpful to them later in life. As a child, I hoped for a life that was easier, more like those actors that seemed to have the greatest lives. However, as a man tha thas been able to find success from the most difficult beginnings, I now understand how the early adversity in life was directly responsible for me gaining a set of skills that proved valuable later in life.

Watch Me Be Great!

There was a log of intense planning and preparation to open this school year. Every family has a different situation and we had to figure out the best way to service and educate our students, while still being mindful of the unknown regarding safety and COVID-19. The River Rouge School District will begin the school year with online instruction as our primary learning option. While, this means direct instruction will be completely online or virtual, we understand students may need additional support that every home will not be able to provide. Without judgement, we understand that no matter how committed parents are to helping their child or children with their schoolwork during the pandemic, we believe there will be times in-person support from a teacher or paraprofessional is necessary.

The River Rouge School District is COVID-19 Ready

The River Rouge School District is confident that we will successfully educate students during this current crisis. Our district has adopted "Watch Me Be Great!" as our theme for 2020-2021 school year and that is exactly what we plan for your child to become regardless of the situation. As we prepare to open our doors for the upcoming school year, we have designed learning platforms to ensure that every student will have the best opportunity to learn under the circumstances.

Welcome to the 2020-2021 School Year at Sabbath!

Welcome to the 2020-21 School Year!  Thank you all for selecting an outstanding education at Sabbath Middle School.  This year the theme for the River Rouge School District is “Watch Me Be Great! There is Opportunity in Crisis!”  We all know that this year is going to be a little different, but for us, different will be great as we take every opportunity to maintain our standard of excellence  with both safety and academic integrity.  Our students will always be our top priority.  As the situation with Covid-19 is extremely dynamic, we will continue to make proactive decisions that are grounded in care of our families and staff.  Thank you for your patience thus far, and as we move forward.

Welcome to the 2020-2021 School Year at STEM

On March 13, 2020, the River Rouge School District underwent a historic transformation, closing school buildings in order to protect our scholars, staff, families, and fellow Michiganders from COVID-19. As we look ahead to September, we see the big picture: the continuing rise in cases across the country has created chaos for districts that have already opened school. We previously delayed announcing our plan because we needed to consider guidance from City, State, and Federal health authorities who are studying patterns of the virus.
