• More Caps and Gowns Project
    The GSD, the United Way and Penn State Behrend have come together to provide a mentoring program for twenty six graders at RAMS.

  • Just a reminder!

    From the PA Dept. of Education: 

    Vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death among 16-24 year olds. Some key contributors to crashes involving teen drivers in Pennsylvania include driver inexperience, driver distractions, driving too fast for conditions and improper or careless turning. PennDOT offers numerous resources for young drivers, as well as parents and guardians, to help keep everyone safe on the road during this time. It only takes a moment for a crash to occur, so make sure to remain alert at all times. For more tips visit the Young Driver section on JustDrivePA.com.
