    Most of the projects completed by the R.A.M.S. Student Council are service-oriented. First, we provide information to the students, faculty and community about such topics as drug/alcohol abuse, hunger/ community food banks, and safety/environmental awareness. We also sponsor monthly school-wide activities in order to build positive relationships and provide team-building experiences for all students in the junior high. Past activities have included:  Student of the Month Assemblies, Thanksgiving Luncheon, Christmas Dance, Valentine Day Ice Night, Student-Faculty Basketball Game, and Education Day at PNC Park (Academic Incentive), and Day at the Movies (Behavioral Incentive).
