My name is Melanie Cimenski. This is my fifth year teaching at Royalton Middle School/High School. I have wanted to be a teacher at Royalton since I was in high school. I graduated with honors from Royalton High School in 1998. After graduation, I attended a few colleges across the United States because my husband was active duty in the Air Force. I am happy to be back in my home state!
When not in the classroom, or hard at work on the RMS/RHS stage, I enjoy a variety of activities. Camping, hiking, and fishing with my family are favorite adventures of mine during the warm months. My family also enjoys taking an active part in the local community theaters. For entertainment we enjoy attending plays and musicals, but, when given the chance, we love to be involved in some way. When I am not onstage I can sometimes be found snuggled on the couch (with my German Shepherd and my Shih-Tzu Bichon) enjoying a thick book, singing at the piano with my family, or sewing in my office.

It is my firm belief that students need to learn to advocate for themselves. Therefore, if there is a question with the grading or regarding an assignment, it is in the student's best interest to address the issue himself/herself. If the issue cannot be satisfactorily resolved by myself and the student, it may become necessary to contact the student's guardian.

If you'd like to receive reminders of your student's upcoming exams or project due dates, feel free to sign up for the Remind.com classroom. Text messages will be sent when I remind the students of upcoming assignments and due dates. You can access this reminder through the website or a nifty app on an i-device.

I also keep a daily blog for each class that I instruct. This blog allows students and parents the opportunity to know which part of the curriculum was addressed on each day and, perhaps, if there was assignment. Please see the links below. Feel free to save each as a shortcut on your home computer. 

Lastly, I highly encourage both parents and students to frequently check the Skyward grading.
