Hey RAMS - did you know that 8 out of 10 middle school students hate going to the dentist?  And did you know that 9 out of 10 dentists say that eating too much Halloween candy can give you cavities?  Well, even though all of the statistics in this announcement are made up, you should definitely save your teeth and donate some of your Halloween candy to a good cause.  Look for the pumpkin orange box at lunch!

Hey there RAMS!
Remember when we asked for tissue boxes? We still need 24 more tissue boxes for a project in advisory. And don’t worry, you’ll be learning about our intentions soon!  Drop off your empty tissue boxes in the big box next to your guidance counselor's office! Though 24 boxes might seem like a lot, with your help we hope to meet our goal by the next Advisory Day. Thank you for your help! Advisory 225


Hey kids, did you know that Halloween is coming?  On Wednesday, October 31st, you’ll be able to wear costumes to school. Now, before you get too carried away, there are a few rules you’ll need to follow.

You may not wear masks that cover your face.
You may not wear costumes that will intentionally scare others (clown or clown-like outfits/face painting, blood and gore, and/or weapons of any kind).
You may not dress up in a way that would offend others (consider age, race, gender identity, profession, and/or religious affiliation).


Use this Wednesday as a way to show your Halloween spirit, and be sure to thank a member of Spirit Club for continuing this fun tradition up again!
