Last Call for Yearbook Pictures!

We're looking for great pictures of Ramsey students to be included in this year's yearbook. Did you get any good shots at Camp St. Croix? Do you have photos from your student’s band or orchestra concerts? Do you have pictures from your student’s fall soccer season? We may not use all photos, but we’d love to have lots of pictures to work with!

Please email photos to, and include a description of the event and names of people in the photo. To be included in this year's yearbook, all photos must be submitted by Friday, March 24. Thank you!

Yearbook order forms will be available in late March/early April. Stay tuned for more information.

AAA Batteries Needed

The Math department at Ramsey is requesting donations of triple-A (AAA) batteries for use in graphing calculators. These calculators are shared and used across all math classrooms at Ramsey and tend to run out of batteries at this point in the school year.

Please send in packs of new AAA batteries with your students to drop off in Room 323 (Ms. Novak’s classroom) or Room 322 (Ms. Krasean’s classroom/Math Center), from March 1 through March 31.

It's one very practical and easy way to help keep the Ramsey students charged up about math. Literally.

Treats for Teachers

Show our wonderful Ramsey staff how much they are appreciated by supporting "Treats for Teachers".  Bring or send in a treat for the staff to enjoy on the first Wednesday of each month.  Treats can be a simple bag of fruit, a veggie tray, baked goods, chips and dip or salsa, a family favorite, or anything you would like to send in! Contact Heidi Knaus with questions at or sign up here for any of the Treats Days this year.
