Dear Ramsey Families,
Happy Spring Break! We would like to give one last shout-out to our amazing DASH coordinator, Elise Dunkin. She did a fantastic job preparing and organizing this special program for kids. Also, we would like to thank our Science Fair team for their organization of such a great Science Fair yesterday! A special ‘thank you’ needs to be given to Ms. Weber and Mrs. Jackson for leading this special day. We were also amazed by the quality and quantity of projects. We hope this event fostered a new interest in Science for many children!
We would like to thank Mrs. Ehrsam, Mrs. Clifford, and Mrs. Wilson for coaching our Math Is Cool teams! Our 4th grade team came in 2nd place and 5th grade team earned 3rd place. Yuki W. and Sebastian R. were the top scorers for Ramsey! Yuki ranked 1st overall for 4th grade and Sebastian placed 5th overall for 5th grade. Congratulations!
Our teachers have thoroughly enjoyed meeting with all of you for conferences. We appreciate your teamwork and efforts to support your children. We are thankful for such a great parent group at Ramsey.

Life can get hectic this time of year between sport practices, music lessons, and other school clubs and events. There will be times when the dinner hour arrives and you find yourself driving to the nearest fast food restaurant to feed the crew. What can you do to maximize the nutritional bang for your buck? Here are a few tips to assure you make the best choices. Have a “go-to” list of restaurants that your family enjoys that offers healthier options such as salads, fresh sandwiches, and meat & veggie rice bowls. Choose smaller portions by avoiding the super-sized meal options. Opt for milk, water or juice over soda. Add veggies where you can such as on sandwiches, on top of the pizza or as a side salad option over fries. You can avoid overdoing the high-fat sauces and dressings by keeping them on the side and lightly dipping foods. Lastly, all food choices will fit into your diet provided you exercise good portion control and balance them with healthier choices. To learn more about healthy eating, go the Nutrition Services department page and click on “Nutrition Links that We Like” at www.cdaschools.org.
Please mark your calendars for our spring book fair from April 3rd-7th in the library!
Enjoy every minute with your children over Spring Break creating new memories. The kids are excited to be with you! Whether you are staying in Coeur d’Alene or traveling elsewhere, please be safe. We look forward to your return.
