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 your child each and every day. 


Our building theme for the 2018-19 school year at RCMS is “Count On Me.”  It goes without saying that we need to know that we can rely on each other, that we can count each other, especially in the most challenging moments throughout the school year.  Equally important is trying to ensure that our students begin to recognize the importance of being “counted on” by others, and for all of us to teach and model for them the characteristics of what it takes, especially when it matters most. 


Overall, 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. 


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!
