Welcome to Mr. Rude’s Web Page

Have A GREAT Thanksgiving Break!!!!

It’s hard to believe that Trimester 1 is already in the books.  All of my students have done a GREAT job!!!  Keep up the great work and build those solid early grades as you move into Trimester 2.  I encourage everyone to earn Extra Credit as often as possible and come in for Polar makeup time as needed to help improve your grade in class.

I want to wish everyone a FUN, SAFE & ENJOYABLE Thanksgiving Break!  Please do your best to spend quality time with your family/friends and reflect upon those things in your life that your most thankful for!!!
