We are still in need of both instructors and volunteers for our DASH program. If you have a special interest or talent that you would like to share, or know of anyone else that may be interested in teaching, please contact Elise Dunkin at email@example.com. Classes this year will be on Mondays and Wednesdays, beginning February 13th. You can teach or volunteer for one or both days.
What's the big idea?
Building a special collaborative science lab! Check it for out for yourself at http://www.creativelearningsystems.com/smartlab.aspx Wow!! This is such an exciting opportunity to take our science magnet school a giant leap forward by providing a specially-built lab and curriculum to teach collaborative science and technology skills.
Big ideas can have a big price tag
With your help, the Ramsey PTO wants to hold a fundraising gala this fall to help make the idea a reality. This is a completely new adventure for us. We need the ideas, special skills, and enthusiasm that we know you have to help make the vision a reality.
Join us at Capone's next Wednesday for our first meeting! RSVP to PTO.Ramsey@gmail.com.
Ramsey Magnet School of Science is a National Title One School.
Here is a Short SQORD Video that introduces this excellent program.

A big thank you to Fred Meyer for the $500 donation to Ramsey Magnet School of Science.
Dear Ramsey Families,
Happy Friday and welcome back! We hope your family has had a smooth week with routines back in order. Thank you for your patience in the parking lots this week before and after school. We recognize the snow situation is not ideal and wish there was more we could do. Our district’s maintenance department is working extremely hard to find a remedy for removing snow from the parking lots before the next storm hits.
We would like to communicate some important information from our PTO meeting last night:
Please consider helping with our Dynamic After School Hour Program beginning on February 13th In order to make this possible for kids, it takes parents volunteering their time to help. If you are interested in teaching a class, please contact Elise Dunkin at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our PTO will be hosting a planning meeting from a Ramsey Gala at the HAYDEN Capone’s next Wednesday, January 11th at 6:30. The PTO has a goal to create a large fundraiser to benefit the creation of a hands-on science lab. For more information, click HERE.
Are you interested in helping shop for sale items to stock our Santa Shop for next year? Please contact the Ramsey PTO at email@example.com
To keep up to date with more information about our school, we invite you to join the Ramsey PTO facebook group HERE Once you get to the website, click join group.
Part of Ramsey’s great image comes from student uniforms. Please remember that uniform shirts should consist of a plain, solid-colored, long or short sleeved shirt or sweatshirt (any color) with the Ramsey logo on the left upper corner. If students desire to wear an outer garment (sweater, vest, or sweatshirt) in the building, it must have a visible logo. Most students follow these guidelines well. During these cold months, please remind your child about our dress code rules so they hear a consistent message from home and school.
On an unrelated note, our lost and found is overflowing with clothes. If you are missing an article of clothing for your child, please swing by Ramsey to check out the lost and found. We will be donating all remaining items next Friday, January 13.
As a reminder to our 1st and 2nd grade families, please join us on Thursday, January 19th from 5:30-7:00 pm for Family Night! First and second graders will all go to the cafeteria to participate in fun, engaging learning activities while parents rotate through teacher classrooms to get great ideas for home. It will be a great night!
Often times, winter months usher in a decrease in physical activity and weight gain. There are ways to keep your family active during the cold months of the year. Join your kids in an afternoon of sledding or making a snowman instead of watching from the window. Bundle up and take family walks around the neighborhood. Snowshoeing or cross country skiing is great exercise and gives you the opportunity to appreciate nature blanketed in snow. For days when conditions prevent playing outdoors, try turning up the stereo and showing off your dance moves! For more information on how to add physical activity to your life, go to the Nutrition Services department page at www.cdaschools.org.
Please stay warm this weekend,
Crystal Kubista, Principal
Aaron Drake, Assistant Principal
