Hello, RAMS. We're having an art auction during the Art and Jazz festival, on Monday May 20th from 6-8 p.m. If you want to donate art from home or your WOW project please drop off your art in the art room. You guys have till May 15 to donate. Talk to any friends and family members you know and ask them to donate because all the proceeds from the art auction will go to support the Navajo Water project. Thank you and have a great day!! 

Attention all 7th Grade Students interested in attending next April's RAMS trip to Washington, D.C.: please submit your signed forms and initial deposit check to either Mr. Perry or Mr. Conant as soon as possible.  Spots are starting to fill up for next year's trip.

A message from the library:
The library has sent out overdue notices to all grades.  Everyone please check your email to see if you owe books to the library and if you do, please return them!
Thank you.

The members of the Beautiful Mind Campaign would like to bring to your attention that May is Mental Health Awareness Month. You might be wondering, what is Mental Health?   It refers to a person’s mental well being, how we each feel emotionally.   A lot of times, people do not take caring for their mental health as seriously as their physical health, but the truth is that it is just as important as physical health, and ultimately the two are connected.   This year’s theme for National Mental Health Awareness Month is 4Mind4Body. 

This theme focuses on improving your mental health by taking small steps to make your lifestyle more positive.  Stay tuned to future announcements when we share with you some of the small steps you can take to take care of your mental health, but to start you off we will give you an idea for today.  At the end of the day try to think of or write down at least three things that were good.  Examples:  you helped a friend, someone gave you a compliment, you completed an assignment that was hard for you…
Try it, noticing the good things in your day, no matter how small you might think they are  is excellent for your mental health.

Good morning Rams. Green Team meets today after school. Any student interested in planning the school and community gardens is welcome to attend. Have a wonderful Monday. 

Congratulations to the RAMS track and field team for winning two meets last week.  Both the boys and girls defeated rival Hopkinton and Medway by comfortable margins.  Practice resumes tomorrow on the high school track - buses will leave early tomorrow at 2:30pm!
