Chromebook Returns

Please remind your student to bring in their Chromebook, Charger, and Case for return on their specified return date. Please take a look at your student’s Chromebook before it is returned.

6th Graders will be turning in their Chromebook, cases, and chargers on Monday (6/18).

8th Graders will be turning in their Chromebook, cases, and chargers on Tuesday (6/19)

7th Graders will be turning in their Chromebook, cases, and chargers on Wednesday (6/20)

The Chromebook your 6th and 7th graders have this year will be the same unit they are issued next year.  Every effort will be made to replace keyboards with missing keys and broken screens. If your student's screen is filthy, you may want to spray glass cleaner on a paper towel (not directly on the screen) and wipe the screen and keyboard down.

Term 3 Report Cards

As Term 3 comes to a close, we will be shutting down the access to the report card and progress report features within the iPass Parent Portal from Monday, June 11 through Thursday, June 21. This will allow teachers the opportunity to finalize the Term 3 grades for their students.  It is our intention to have report cards available online in iPass on Friday, June 22.


PowerSchool- Parent/Student Information

We are excited to share that PowerSchool will be our new student information system to replace iPass for 2018-2019 and beyond!  PowerSchool will provide many more features to improve communication between the students, parents, and staff. We will be providing information this summer, as to how you and your child can begin accessing PowerSchool for the start of the 2018-2019 school year.  Please look for an email blast in late July with account log in and feature information. If you have any questions please feel free to reach out RAMS Administration.

2018 Summer Reading Information now Available

At Robert Adams Middle School, we understand the importance of both academic and recreational reading. As studies have proven, when students read for pleasure, they benefit in all subjects, not just English. Recreational reading improves vocabulary, spelling, reading fluency, and background knowledge.

RAMS Library Summer check out

Did you know YOU can take library books home over the summer?

RAMS Literary Magazine- The Middle Ground 2018 Edition

The Literary Magazine Club is proud to present the 2018 copy of "The Middle Ground." Our students throughout the building have worked hard to present a wide variety of writing and artistry. This year, we have chosen to produce only an online version, which in turn allows us to have much more in-color artwork - for that we are excited!

Please use this link to view the literary magazine - from it, you can also click the grey "download" icon at the bottom right of the page. This will allow you to download a PDF version which gives a different look for viewing.

RAMS Sports Wrap-up

The RAMS Spring Track & Field girls team ended their season with a HUGE 1st place victory at the Massachusetts State Division 2 championships.  Our boys brought home many medals as well. It was a record-breaking season for everyone!!! Congratulations to all the athletes and coaches.

We are looking forward to Fall Field Hockey, Volleyball and Cross Country. Registration information will be emailed to all parents/guardians in the late summer.
