2020 Rosemount Middle School Fundraiser

Oct. 19 to Oct. 30, 2020

Welcome to the Rosemount Middle School fundraiser! 

Our campaign is back to help fund a variety of needs around RMS that staff have identified. From educational technology/tools, to gym equipment, to classroom supplies and books, there are many areas that you can choose among to support! (For full details, check out the RMS Wish List below.)  

The goal is for each student to raise $20 through donations by family and friends, but all contributions are appreciated. Donations are also being accepted via MyPaymentsPlus.

This year’s campaign has been planned by parent volunteers, which means every dollar raised stays within RMS! 

Thank you for your generosity and support of GIVE YOUR WAY: SUPPORT THE IRISH WAY!

Special thanks to talented RMS parent Brad Webster for designing our campaign logo.


The following are the list of current needs within RMS as identified by staff members.

Scholastic Scope subscription: This is a great resource for including non-fiction texts and it is helpful especially when doing distance learning. Students can work on paired texts, current event topics and debate options.

Classroom books: Teachers are in need of more classroom books appropriate to certain reading levels.

Tennis racquets: The PE department needs to update its set of tennis racquets which are in poor condition due to general wear and tear over the years. Students would use these in PE class and the racquets could be used in activities that help promote the Tennis programs in Rosemount. 

IXL 6th Grade Language Arts Student Subscription: This would give students access to the IXL Language Arts Curriculum (with RMS teacher instruction) to implement the MN English standards in the classroom with support of IXL from home. IXL can be used for reinforcement, remedial support, parental English academic support, student self-monitoring, student pacing and student support. Teachers can use IXL to view relevant student data and lesson progression and can then adapt lesson plans in the classroom to support the needs of each student. One of the pros with IXL, over other apps, is the ability for students to learn from their mistakes. IXL explains why an answer is incorrect. The math department at RMS has noticed the benefits from IXL, and the English teachers would love to share the benefits of IXL for all students.

Science pets & supplies: RMS pets like geckos and snakes are an absolute favorite in the science classroom. Students learn a lot from caring for and studying these animals, and, like real pets, feeding and maintaining the animals is an ongoing expense. You can help cover the cost of food, heating light bulbs, bedding and other supplies. 

Mackin Via e-book subscriptions: There is a strong need for increased access to e-books and audio books. Mackin Via is the best tool for this. The school does not have enough electronic copies/subscriptions for the Writer's Craft Unit. The RMS media specialist is helpful in collaborating and pairing texts for all our students and this subscription would support the needs of all distance learners. In addition, the audio book feature supports the modifications some students need to be able to access the material. The subscriptions would fulfill the demand that ALL at home learners need in order to make meaningful content related to our unit available.

Euphoniums for band: Under Covid-19, instrument sharing is prohibited. However, RMS does not have enough euphoniums for each student to have their own individually assigned instrument to use at school. In addition, some of the euphoniums from RMS that students use are 70 to 100 years old! The Band department would like to purchase at least one baritone to mitigate the need. 

 Fidget rings: The RMS counselors believe that giving something tangible to a student is powerful. In the counseling world, helping to engage the emotions with kinesthetic/stimuli helps students engage their brains in a variety of ways, allowing more growth in the mental health/social emotional learning world. However, with COVID, fidgets aren’t available to as many students for health and safety reasons. Being able to purchase additional fidgets to give to students will help them process through emotions, use the fidget to stay in class and use it at home as a reminder of conversations with us and potential coping skills to use! 

Sunshine Committee: This committee is requesting some funds so they can do staff engagement activities to recognize their dedication, efforts, and add to the RMS strong school community, especially during designated weeks like “American Education Week” and “Education Support Professionals Week.” 

Activity scholarship funds: RMS wants ensure all students have equal opportunity to attend field trips and participate in activities without financial burden, and your support of activity scholarship fund will help.
