RAMS Breakfast Honors 52 Outstanding Students

The second R.A.M.S. Breakfast of the 2018-19 school year at the high school was a huge success on February 4, with 52 students in grades nine through twelve recognized for academic or social excellence during the second semester.

R.A.M.S. is an acronym meaning "Recognizing Achievements and Meaningful Success." Two more breakfasts are planned through the end of the year.

The idea for a R.A.M.S. Breakfast was created over the summer in 2017 when the administrative team was discussing ways to recognize students for their successes in school. They didn’t want to limit the criteria to only academic success so they asked the faculty to recommend students who show excellence in academics, trustworthiness, initiative, empathy, service, perseverance, kindness, dependability, building self-esteem and by demonstrating acceptance.

This is no small achievement. Each department was only allowed to nominate one student per grade. For example, there is only one student out of 605 12th graders nominated to receive the award from the English Department.

A new category this year is the Assistant Principal's Award. Each of these students has made a significant contribution to the school community or has experienced tremendous personal growth.
