Project 351-Cradles to Crayons Donations

Our project Project 351 ambassador, 8th grader Victoria Thomas, is running a clothing drive next week in support of Cradles to Crayons. There will be bins in the lobby where students and staff can donate clothing. Cradles to Crayons supports families who face clothing insecurity, so please donate clothing from newborn size to adult medium. Thank you!

RAMS Yearbooks-Orders Due by 4/30

We’re excited to announce that yearbook ordering is open for the school year. Using this link on the school’s webpage, you can order a yearbook for your child. Yearbooks will be distributed in early June, and ordering closes at the end of April. Please don’t wait to order - we’d love to secure a yearbook for your child now. We will have a few copies to sell in person in June, but last year we ran out! The only way to guarantee one for your child is by ordering online by April 30th.

RAMS CARE T-Shirts & Ordering

Dear RAMS Families,


Earlier this school year, students took part in a RAMS CARE t-shirt design competition. We recently received those t-shirts and are ready to distribute t-shirts to students who previously requested them. The cost is $7 cash or check made payable to Robert Adams Middle School.


IMPORTANT - Any student that did not previously order a t-shirt, but has subsequently changed their minds and would like to order a t-shirt, will have the opportunity to do so over the next week.


Thank you.
