Weekly RAM Newsletter
A Brief Note from Dr. Burke
Dear Ram families,
You may recall the District has contracted with a company to create a district-wide facilities master plan. Part of this process includes visits to all sites and meetings with a variety of stakeholders, including parents. I would like to invite you to be a part of this process. This is an opportunity for you to advocate for your kids...to ensure they have state-of-the art learning facilities. Join me on May 30th in the Library at 9:00am to share your thoughts with the consultant. Remember, this is about creating the facilities our campus needs in order to support world class learners. Please RSVP at firstname.lastname@example.org if you plan to attend. I hope to see you there.
Thank you to all of you who have already completed the online portion of the registration process for the 2019-20 school year. Please hold on to the signature page because you will need to present it to obtain your student's class list, ID card, and books at registration in August. If you have not completed the online portion, I highly encourage you to do so. I also want to remind those of you with current 6th graders to turn in your immunization records to Mr. Wilson in the Health Office. Your child will not be able to complete registration or attend classes until this is received.
And don't forget, school will be closed next Monday, May 27th, in observance of Memorial Day.
That's it for now. We look forward to seeing all our students tomorrow, and remember, it's a 6/2/4 day.

Noya Dahan Shining Light Scholarship Fund
Chelsea’s Light Foundation announces the Noya Dahan Shining Light Scholarship fund to help ensure a shining future for the brave eight-year-old who was one of the congregants wounded during the shooting at the Chabad of Poway in California on April 27, 2019. Noya, along with her two sisters and their uncle, were attending services at the Chabad of Poway to celebrate the final day of Passover, when an anti-semitic zealot entered the sanctuary, shot and killed one congregant, and injured three others including Noya. She received injuries from shrapnel that hit her face and leg and was hospitalized for her injuries but has since been released.
CLF is seeking donations to the fund to help ensure Noya fulfills her bright future. “We want Noya to know that she is an important member of our community, that we support her and her courage, and want to make sure her future shines bright,” said Andrew Skale, Board President of CLF and Poway resident. Donations can be made at https://chelseaslight.org/. Everything raised will be placed in a scholarship fund for Noya’s college education.
For almost a decade, Chelsea’s Light Foundation has been providing scholarships to help students, having donated more than $650,000 in scholarship funds to bright and resilient children all across the county.
