Hi everyone! My name is Emma Sheils and I have created a White House petition for part of my STEAM project for Tech Ed. The petition says that Congress should take action on environmental issues such as climate change and pollution. The petition has to have 99,999 signatures by November 21st to get a response from the White House. I would really appreciate it if everyone could take some time to sign it. The link is on Ms. Roy's classroom and all of the teachers have been provided with the link to share to students. Thanks so much for all of your help!"

Quidditch will meet on Wednesday after school this week.  This change is to give sixth grade band members a chance to join us.  We will meet in Mrs. Buckley's room before heading outside with our brooms.

Despite the loss to a challenging Grade 8 Medfield team, the Grade 7 RAMS Volleyball squad put forth their best performance of the season with strong serving and floor play.  The squad was led by game captains, Ava P. and Cayla J., who had a smashing overhead hit for a point.  Phenomenal serving was also on display from Grace C., Brooke R., Vanessa D., Emma H., Lindsey H., and Julia S.  The team looks to finish out the season strong against a tough Medfield team this afternoon.

Attention all Grade 8 students attending this April's trip to Washington, D.C.: the second payment is now overdue.  Please hand a check to either Mr. Perry in Room 129 or Mr. Conant in Room 123, or simply place the check in either Mr. Perry's or Mr. Conant's main office mail slot.

There will be a spirit club meeting in room 121 today after school.
