Parents, Students and Community Members:


TragerShane.jpgOn behalf of the teachers and staff, allow me to welcome you to Reed-Custer Middle School.  Please know that we consider it a privilege to have the opportunity to work with your child each and every day.  In fact, our motto for the 2017-18 school year at RCMS is to “Win The Day.”  In short, we will encourage all students, teachers, and staff members to approach each day as a new day and an opportunity to improve from the day before.    

We truly believe that our mission, in part, is to empower all students to find lasting individual success.  In meeting that goal, we will ensure a strong curriculum, provide excellent instruction, and advance our co-curricular programs.  Additionally, we will provide support for all students to reach their maximum potential in all areas of individual growth and maintain high expectations for student achievement. ​ 


At the same time, none of this is possible without continued communication and involvement with parents and the community.  Together, we will continue to build a collaborative school community culture that embraces a collective responsibility for student learning.  


If, at any time, you have any concerns with your child’s progress, or just have a general question, please know that my door is always open or feel free to contact me at 815-458-2868, or email  


Win The Day!
