Ramsey Weekly Update
Parents and guardians in primary households should complete the 2020-2021 Back-to-School iUpdate.
Parents and guardians will:
- Complete all, annually-required school and district forms including the Technology Use Agreement (for student iPad use), field trip and media permission forms.
- Add or change primary and/or alternative addresses to ensure accurate school-bus transportation to and from home and/or childcare addresses.
- Slideshow of the steps in iUpdate.
Every SPPS family should complete an application for Education Benefits/Free or Reduced Price Meals. Not only does this help us identify families in need of assistance, it also allows the District to receive federal dollars for classroom programming.
A new form must be completed each school year. Additionally, families who have completed an application and have experienced a change in household income or size are encouraged to complete a new application. Click the button below to complete the application.

IB Middle Years Programme (MYP) Update:
Friday, November 13 is World Kindness Day, which has a goal of helping "everyone understand that compassion for others is what binds us all together. This understanding has the power to bridge the gap between nations." In what has been an especially challenging year, it is more important than ever to find ways to be kind to one another and to the world. Brainstorm some ideas with your student about how they can participate in this worldwide movement.
Commitment: Working toward shared family goals through self-sacrifice, persistence, and loyalty; cultivating an environment of trust and dependability. Connectedness: Receiving support from and contributing to extended family, neighborhood, and community, resulting in a sense of belongingness as well as accountability to others. Schools are families too! Coherence: Acting with self-confidence and self-reliance, translating optimism into making a difference in improving themselves and their world. Cohesion: Maintaining family identity and togetherness, balancing family priorities with support for member esteem and achievement, producing strong family bonds and freedom for individual self-expression.
You are invited to join us Thursday, November 12 at 6:00 pm for the November PTO meeting. The agenda includes:
- Parent "Happy Hour" where we will breakout into grade level discussion rooms

Coats for Kids
The Salvation Army has begun its coat drive. The Salvation Army’s centers are a place for families in crisis to get help, including coats for their children. Visit any of our Twin Cities Worship & Service Centers to learn about meeting your child’s need for a coat. Supplies may be limited, so we recommend contacting the nearest location before stopping by to find out if supplies are available in the sizes you need.
Families can register with their local Salvation Army:https://centralusa.salvationarmy.org/twin-cities/coats-for-kids/
