Hello, Ram Fam,

I know many of you will travel for Thanksgiving. I hope you will have great fun and fellowship during the holiday!
The school building will be closed on Wednesday through Friday of next week.

Wake Forest Dr. Martin Luther King's contest: Each year, Wake Forest hosts a celebration where students are invited to participate in a variety of activities. Awards are given. We would love to have our students participate again this year. Last year, our own Kashara Simpson was a winner. Check out the opportunities at https://www.wakeforestmlkcelebration.com/home.html
Correction re. Driver Education: The classroom portion of the training that has been scheduled for November and December will continue. The focus still remains on catchup for the driving portion of the training.
Senior Cap and Gown Orders: If you want group pricing (best it will be), you need to order by 12/17 at jostens.com.
Fast Food Deliveries for Lunch: Deliveries from delivery services, family members or friends is not permitted. Likewise, students may not bring food from restaurants into the school during lunch or after lunch.
