6th Grade Trip

posted Jun 11, 2018, 6:58 PM by Robin Seneta

The sixth grade students were fortunate this year to get funding to go to the Carnegie Science Center in Pittsburgh.  A Google grant, the Carnegie Science Center, and the Girard School District Foundation were generous in making  it all possible for students to attend this trip. Transportation costs, entrance into the Science Center and Sports Works Facility, lunch, and "Cosmic Collision" at the Buhl Planetarium were provided.  The sixth grade students did an awesome job representing the Girard School District. We all had a lot of fun playing with the exhibits and experiencing both facilities.
Be sure to check out pictures from the trip HERE

Returning Student

posted May 11, 2018, 7:42 AM by Robin Seneta

Rice Avenue Middle School was pleasantly surprised to receive a visit on Friday, May 11, 2018 by a former RAMS student, Jordan Noland!  Jordan had requested the opportunity to speak to the teachers to express his appreciation for all that they had done for him during his middle-school years, which ultimately shaped him into the great young man he is today.  Jordan has just completed his second year at Edinboro University of Pennsylvania, and he is home for the summer.  He brought many smiles, laughs, and even some tears with his heartfelt thank you which was coincidentally given on the last day of Teacher Appreciation Week.  What a great way to end the week!
