If you are looking to join a club this fall, join us at Circle of Friends on Mondays with Mrs. Multer and Mrs. Stiefel. We are a club for all grades, and everyone is welcome! Drop by Room 223 to meet new people, have fun, and help everyone feel included. See you on Monday from 2-3 in room 223!

The book fair is coming to RAMS! Visit during your English class next week to browse our wide selection of titles including The Hate U Give and Miles Morales: Spider-Man, which will both be made into movies this fall! All proceeds benefit our school library.

Hello from the library!  Please listen carefully.  We have some loaners available.  If you do not hear your name, but have come to the library recently with a Chromebook problem, please don't worry.  You are still on our list and we will get you a loaner as soon as possible.  

Just a reminder that this year we will be partnering with Sandy Hook Promise to promote one of their many programs Start with Hello. Many schools nation wide will be participating in the Start With Hello Program, which kicks off this Monday September 24 and runs through Sept 28.  The goal of this initiative is to promote kindness, including others, and really making sure that no one feels left out. We will be having a guest speaker on Monday, that will talk to all of you about the importance of Start with Hello, and throughout the week we will have special announcements, and some activities or special seating at lunch to have fun with this. Begin thinking of ways you can include others, and remember their three essential steps: 1) See someone alone, 2) Reach out and help, 3) Start with Hello

Outstanding effort by RAMs field hockey in their first game this season against Natick.  Great saves by goalies Phoebe W. and Hannah D.  Keep up the great work ladies!

The Grade 7 RAMS Volleyball team performed well this week, despite tying Ashland and falling just short to a strong Nipmuc team.  In the Ashland game the team was led by co-captains Leilani B. and Julia Q., while co-captains Danielle P. and Megan L. helped lead the RAMS squad against Nipmuc.  In both games, strong performances were exhibited by Lindsey H. and Vanessa D. who both attacked the opposing teams with crushing serves and quick floor play.  The team looks to rebound next Monday at home versus Milford.

Good Morning and Happy Friday RAMS!

Ms Cormier and Mr Conant wanted to just follow-up from our discussion yesterday at lunch about student government:

-please come by and see either Ms Cormier or Mr Conant if you have any questions or thoughts about student government, we would be happy to chat in more detail!

-students, you will be voting for a HR rep & alternate sometime next week during homeroom.....with that being said, let's all remember the words of the great American president, FDR who famously said, ""Democracy cannot succeed unless those who express their choice are prepared to choose wisely. The real safeguard of democracy, therefore, is education.” 

Have a great day!
