Dear Rams Families:
1)  Hello and Happy Monday-  Clearly this will not be the Friday Memo for me so it’s been renamed The Memo!  Welcome back Track 4.  Make a great week!
2)  Reminder about Hall Passes- All students will need a Hall pass when dismissed from class to go to another location.  If you need add’l blue passes, extras are located in the mail room on the table near your boxes.  If a student is using his/her individual pass that you punch, please make sure the student carries the hall pass to their destination.  Your help is greatly appreciated.
3)  Rising 6th Grade Open House-  Reminder that we have our 2nd Open House for our rising 6th graders on April 21 from 6pm-7pm.
4)  RMS Future Business Leaders of America Club & March of Dimes
March of Dimes – Opportunity to Support: 
Help the RMS Future Business Leaders of America(FBLA) Club support March of Dimes and help families with babies in the NICU. They will be putting together personal care kits with some of the following items: toothpaste, toothbrush, deodorant, unscented lotion, bars of soap,  chapstick, gum or mints, and cozy socks. They will collect items from Wednesday, April 20th to Friday, April 22nd. There will be a dropbox at each entrance for your donated items. Flyers are posted around the school with a full list of items needed for the care packages.   Thank you for your support! RMS FBLA
