Dear Students, Parents, and Staff,

As we embark on the 2024-2025 school year, it is my great pleasure to extend a heartfelt welcome to each and every one of you. I am thrilled to introduce myself as Shelbi Wilson, your principal here at Rim Country Middle School (RCMS).

About Me: I am a proud native of Payson, and my journey in education has come full circle. Having graduated from Payson High School, I am deeply connected to this community. After earning my bachelor’s degree in Agriculture Education and Extension from New Mexico State University, I continued my educational journey by obtaining a master’s degree in Educational Administration from Grand Canyon University.

Our Vision: At RCMS, we believe in fostering an environment where students thrive academically, socially, and emotionally. Our hallways echo with the energy of curious minds, and our classrooms buzz with the excitement of learning. Together, we will create a positive and inclusive space where every student feels valued and empowered.

Parent-Principal Partnership: Parents, you are our partners in this educational journey. Your involvement, support, and feedback are invaluable. Let’s work together to ensure that your child’s middle school experience is memorable, enriching, and filled with growth.

Student Success: To our students, I say this: You are the heart of RCMS. Your dreams, aspirations, and unique talents drive us forward. Whether it’s academics, arts, or athletics, we are here to nurture your potential and celebrate your achievements.

Staff Dedication: Our dedicated staff members are committed to providing a safe, engaging, and rigorous learning environment. From our outstanding teachers to our support staff, everyone at RCMS is passionate about your success.

Get Involved: I encourage all students to explore our extracurricular activities, clubs, and sports. RCMS offers a vibrant array of opportunities to discover new interests, make friends, and develop leadership skills.

Communication Channels: Stay connected with us! Our website, weekly newsletters, and video announcements will keep you informed about school events, academic progress, and important announcements.

Principal Wilson, that’s me, is here to listen, learn, and lead. My door is always open, and I look forward to getting to know each of you better.

Let’s make this school year exceptional! Welcome to Rim Country Middle School!

Warm regards,

Shelbi L. Wilson, M.Ed.
