#rams2gether Week: 12/1-12/5 Ridgewood Anti-Bullying Week

We will be celebrating the first ever #rams2gether Week when we return from Thanksgiving Break. During this week, we will have dress up days and other activities that will be planned by our Student Leadership Team. The week will culminate next week with Unity Day on Wed., December 10 in the gym for 100 student ambassadors. We are taking teacher nominations to select students for this very special day and honor. We are looking for students who are diverse, exhibit leadership (could be silent leaders but have a voice that should be heard), willingness to learn, and be apart of the greater RHS community. If you have a student or students, please nominate them at this link no later than Friday, December 5.

At the Unity Day, students will have the opportunity to work with a team from Pathfinder, Inc. to explore the following: Develop the bonds of community through shared fun, adventure, and challenge; Learn tools for communication, critical thinking, and consensus building; Apply international leadership techniques to lead with compassion and justice; Deepen awareness of your cultural identity-and the cultures of others; Learn to celebrate similarities and differences; Learn to safely stand up for what is right. http://www.pathfinder-ed.org/community/youth-programs.php
