  1. This week we are continuing to recognize RAMS of the Week.  These students are being recognized for showing outstanding Responsibility, Accountability, Motivation or Service.  Here are just a few examples of what RAMS winners have done this year...helping a student carry his lunch and getting out of line to do it, taking the time to help everyone else build their robot because he finished quickly, helping to find another student's fidget when it was lost and taking the initiative to move away from distractions and stayed focused to get their work finished. At this time, the following students should report to the office to receive their RAMS T-shirts:  Aiden Ondrovich, Katie Atkinson, Ethan May, Emma Molina, Jeremy Scheidt, Sybil Smith and Jossy Spencer.

  2. For students in 8th grade THIS YEAR (next year’s 9th graders): Student course option sheets will be due back to their LA teachers with parent signatures by Wednesday, February 24th. On Tuesday, March 9th, the high school counselors will be coming to the middle school to meet with students individually.  They will review all course requests with the students. The last day for students to make any changes to their high school course requests is Friday, March 26th.  Any questions about high school scheduling can be directed to the counselors at the high school.  Angie Raby (last names A-K), angie.raby@rossrams.com, 863-1252 & Samantha Rutowski (last names L-Z), samantha.rutowski@rossrams.com, 863-1252

  6. Today is the last day of National School Counseling Week.  We’re glad we were able to share ideas this week on how to be perseverant.  It’s a skill we practice every day and, like you, we are still learning.  Sometimes it is easy to get frustrated with something and give up.  However, if we continue to persevere, at some point we will have success.  We all make mistakes, we need to learn from the mistakes we make and keep going.  We can do anything we want to if we stick with it long enough. We at RMS are all here to help you succeed.  We know you can persevere to overcome challenges and achieve your goals.  When you stumble, and you will because we all do, we will be there to help.   Look at what we all did in the spring during remote learning.  It was new territory to us all and we made it through together.  Author F. Scott Fitzgerald said, “Never confuse a single defeat with a final defeat.”  You've got this! Thank you for celebrating National School Counseling Week with us!  Have a safe and fun weekend RMS! At this time the following students should report to the office:  Brielle Brelsford, Payton Thompson, Alie Wilkinson, Jonathan Hudson, Emily Ritchie, Collin Ante, Bella Jackson-Huddleston, Alex Young, Michael Caldwell

  5. Today we continue celebrating National School Counseling Week. To kick off the week, our counselors put reminders on each students’ locker that you are strong, valued and loved.  This week, we are focusing on perseverance.  One of our goals, as counselors, is to help you learn new skills to help you succeed.  We know you’ve faced many challenges, as you've missed out on time with family and friends, and as many of your regular activities were postponed or cancelled altogether.  Everything is different and that’s a lot to handle.  Determination is a skill that can be helpful for kids and adults alike.  Using your determination when everything feels different is hard.  First, you have to accept that change has happened and will happen, and you just need to find your footing and do the next right thing.  There are lots of tools to help you stay on target.  Making lists and setting goals, and just taking time to process your feelings can help you keep going and stay determined.  We are here to help you find the tools that work best for you and keep moving forward.

  3. Good Morning - Today is the first day of National School Counseling Week.  Our focus for this week is PERSEVERANCE, which is when you continue to work towards achieving something despite obstacles, failure and opposition.  And one way to persevere is to work with others who will share ideas and encourage you, when you need it.  As your school counselors, we are here to help you work on the skills that will help you persevere even when things may be hard. To begin School Counseling Week, our counselors put reminders on every students’ locker that you are strong, valued and loved. Throughout the week we will be spotlighting examples of perseverance within our RMS community.  Our counselors are always available to listen and support you.  Reach out through the Google link or Schoology message them any time. “Find people who challenge and inspire you, spend a lot of time with them, and it will change your life forever.”

  8. RMS - have a Terrific Tuesday RMS! Keep making those Really Excellent Decisions!

12/11 Announcements:

  1. This week, RMS will wrap up celebrating R.E.D. (Really Excellent Decisions) Week today. Empathy is choosing to put yourself in someone else’s shoes, to see something from their point of view.   Do not rush to judgement, take a step back and look at how they may be feeling in that situation.  By focusing on how they are feeling, you will be more likely to support them rather than judge them.  You never know what is going on in someone else’s world. This week we’ve spotlighted the choices that we make and how they affect ourselves and others.  We should try to approach each situation with a positive mindset.  Anytime you look at things through a positive lens, you are more likely to make REALLY EXCELLENT DECISIONS! Be sure to check out all of the kind acts on display in the lobby.  Thank you for helping to support the Student Council’s Angel Tree Drive.  Your generosity will make the holidays a little brighter for some Ross families.

Wednesday we will be focusing on gratitude and giving back.  Remember you can donate $1 to help Student Council  and have your name help build the angel tree in the lobby.  Hat Day tomorrow - Whether it be a santa hat or baseball hat, don’t forget to wear your favorite style!

(Really Excellent Decisions) Week.  A small act of kindness can go a long way!  You never know what type of day someone is having.  Taking the time to say “Hi” to someone, asking someone how their day is, or talking to someone by themselves at a mask break,  could make a bad day turn into a good one!  We challenge everyone at RMS to go out of their way and do something kind for another student or adult.    Ms. Jeffery and Mrs. Rice have posted a google form in Schoology for you to record any acts of kindness you see or do this week at RMS.  We want to catch RMS being kind :)Tomorrow & Wednesday we would love to see everyone donate $1(in the lobby collected by Student Council as you enter) to our Angel Tree and rock their jerseys or jammies to focus on choosing healthy habits! (** Tuesday is Choose Healthy Habits Day - make the choice to be active, eat healthy and get enough rest! Also - you should wear a jersey or your jammies to show your spirit!)
