Weekly RAM Newsletter

A Brief Note from Dr. Burke

Hello RAM families,

We wanted to thank the 7th grade parents who were able to join us this past week for Academic Review Night. We had a great turnout and hope you felt the time spent was valuable. If you were unable to make it, please feel free to contact any of our counselors to discuss your student's academic progress. Speaking of academic progress, report cards will be hand carried home with your students this Thursday.

Please read below for important information regarding school events, activities and resources. Of note, we will be hosting a Best Buddies Informational Meeting which includes a presentation from the New Programs Representative on Wednesday during both lunches in the Little Theater. And, it's probably worth highlighting that this Friday is a Non-Student Day as our staff participates in a variety of professional development activities. Please enjoy the three-day weekend with your families.

I look forward to seeing you all tomorrow and remember, it's a 3/5/1 day.

Espola Road Construction Update

The Poway City Council has opted to terminate its contract with Just Construction for the Espola Road Safety Improvements Project, effective Tuesday, January 22.

The traffic signal at the Del Poniente/High Valley and Espola Road intersection will be returned to its original configuration/timing on Saturday, January 26. For those of you who have been experiencing delays in your commute to and from TPMS, this means that you will get a temporary reprieve until the city implements a new plan.

Enjoy the light(er) traffic while it lasts!

Government Shutdown

If your family has been affected by the government shut down you may be eligible for meal benefits. Please stop by the front office to pick up a meal application.
