This October, along with middle schools throughout the United States, in Johns Creek celebrated Month of the Young Adolescent to draw attention to the unique needs of 10-to-15 year olds. This year marks River Trail Middle School’s 10 year anniversary, and MOYA is a yearly tradition for the school.
According to Principal Dawn Melin, “This year’s MOYA celebration gave students and staff a chance to reflect and reminisce not only about themselves, but also to be attentive to the feelings and experiences of others.”
RTMS hosted a number of events during October to draw attention to the importance of this age group. Activities at RTMS included letters written to soldiers, Decades Day, teachers’ middle school reflections, and a culminating pep-rally for sixth-graders.
