At Rice Lake Middle School, we hope to build a unique partnership of staff, family, and community to nurture each student to become a respectful, responsible, confident, lifelong learners by engaging all students academic success and personal fulfillment.
The Rice Lake Middle School Mission Statement is "Inquire, Learn, and Achieve." We strive to provide students with a comprehensive middle school education. Students receive solid instruction in the core areas. We have a 90 minute block in which balanced literacy is taught to students in a hands on approach that is differentiated through the implementation of guided reading and writing. Students also received a 90 minute block of math in which real world application, hands on activities, and problem solving are at the heart of each lesson. In addition to a focus on the core areas, students have the opportunity to explore their interests. Exploratory offerings include: Technology, Engineering, Computer Applications, World Language, Spanish, French, Art, Physical Education, Band, Choir, Careers, and Health.
We hope that exposure to these new topics will aid students in developing new interests and possible careers path. Our students also have opportunities to explore other interests including: Archery, Science Olympiad, Drama, Boys and Girls Basketball, Volleyball, Wrestling, Cross Country, Track, Boys and Girls Swimming, Skills USA, Student Council, 5th Grade Leadership Team, Forensics, and Math Counts.
Rice Lake Middle School is currently implementing a proactive approach to discipline through the use of the PBIS Framework (Positive Behavior Intervention and Supports). We believe that teaching students how to behave and treat one another with respect will foster a safe collaborative atmosphere. This philosophy is at the heart of how we build relationships and reinforce positive interactions here at Rice Lake Middle School."
