Parents, Students and Community Members:



On 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 and help your child maximize his/her potential.    

Our building motto for the 2019-20 school year at RCMS is “Success is a Choice.”  Simply put, we want all of our students to embrace a solid work-ethic, to learn how to overcome adversity, and to maintain good character.  Furthermore, we will encourage our students to believe that perseverance and having high expectations truly pays dividends, and, as a result, will translate into continued success, not only in the present but also in high school and beyond. 


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.  Further, 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.  


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


Count On Me!
