What a week at RMS! Very busy finishing MAP testing make ups, and the day to day learning and teaching that happens. In addition to those activities we had a PRIDE assembly on Tuesday where the students were read the children’s version of the Energy Bus book. The theme is thinking positive and not letting the “bullies, vampires” get you down. This is a positive mindset that will take students far in their day to day activities here at RMS. There are two copies in the RMS office to read when you stop by.
The month of October the MAISD is doing a book drive for the program Read Early, Read Often. If you have any just bring them to our office and they will be picked up at the end of the month.
On Thursday RMS staff and students participated in the Big Crunch where all county schools were challenge to take a bite out of Michigan grown apple at 1:21 pm. One in 21 represents a health program that is urging our youth to eat well and move often.
On Friday we all were in for a big surprise as Mr. Yeager was honored by Fox 17 News. Here is the link to his interview and our amazing students speaking about Be Nice.

Thoughts from the book, The Energy Bus…..
Chapter 19: The Ultimate Rule of Positive Energy
“Your positive energy and vision must be greater than anyone’s and everyone’s negativity. Your certainty must be greater than everyone’s doubt.”

Here is a video that was shared to me by Ms. Wendy Kohn staff member at RMS. Part of our theme this year is, “What is your Why? Purpose? This short video makes you consider following your dreams and making the best of everyday you have here on earth. Great videography as well.

Homecoming Week 2016… Some of the best days of the school year in Ravenna must be the week of homecoming. It is filled with laughs, traditions, family and friends. Have a great week in Bulldog Country!

Welcome to the 2016-17 School Year! It is always great to start a new year and look forward to spending time with staff and students creating memorable moments academically and socially through all the activities that RMS provides for our students. We started opening day with an all school assembly to introduce staff, and kick off our theme for the year. After that we met as grade levels to introduce our new classroom behavior expectations. We discussed not running the school of “willy nilly”, the students thought those words were hilarious. They were understanding the streamlining of our processes here and that it will be better for all involved. We have transitioned from the 1950’s style triplicate discipline forms to an online google doc, and SWISS data tracking system. As this does not excite many people, it is a great improvement in how we do business for staff, students, office staff, and parents. In coordination with our new system, I have asked the students to focus on doing two things this year.
#1: Do your work.
#2: Behave.
If we do those two things, we will be able to accomplish much and enjoy our time here together at RMS.
Our theme is, “What is your WHY?” Why are we at school? What do we want to accomplish this year? What is your purpose? I have posed this question to our staff and students. Take the opportunity to make each day here the best it can for yourself and for others around you. Our PRIDE speakers will be speaking on this topic for the upcoming year.

Traditions. It what makes memories of a lifetime. Whether it is a family, a school, a sports team, or a community it is the traditions that we continue to do over and over that build strong bonds. If food is involved it is always a bonus! Let them eat CAKE! We did. The class of 2020 enjoyed listening to their teachers say inspiring kind words about them and the memories that they have share during their time at RMS. The book, The Places You’ll Go was read and some last life lessons that the teaching staff wanted them to know before they head off to the high school. We then launched a balloon in honor of “putting us on the map for our future”. The balloon was attached to a card with the student’s name and our school address to be returned to. It was so calm that morning I thought Diane Landeer an her husband may just find 50 or so in their farm field trees. We shall see…..Then we ate cake, laughed, smiled, and made some memories. I over heard a younger student say as we were getting the celebration ready, “Are we going to get to do that?” I said, “you sure are when you’re an 8th grader!” That’s the thing about traditions. They make memories. They make us happy. They give us something to look forward to. Thank you to Kathy B. our bus driver who loaded all 91 balloons on her bus and delivered them to RMS. Thank you to Dave S. for picking up the two great cakes from Sam’s Club. Thank you to Derek P. our loudest Bulldog Cheer Leader at RMS. He always gets us pumped up and is in a mood to celebrate. Priceless! Thank you for all who had a hand in pulling of our newest tradition at RMS. 8th Grade Celelbration Launch!

As we finish this final lap of the 2015-2016 school year it has been one of great, hard work by students, teaching staff, office staff, parents and the support of the community. This year saw a great tragedy in the death of two of our students. Two RMS students houses were a complete loss by fire damage. It has been a tough year. At the beginning of the school year, Mr. Mark Sly gave the Homecoming pep talk at our assembly and his rallying chant was… “Who has it better than us? No Body!” That is such a true statement in Ravenna and at RPS. Hard work. Laughs. Education. A great community. This year we all pulled together and made many memories through the good and bad times. Take time to reflect, and relax RMS staff, students and parents. You’ve earned it!

May 16-20, 2016 The Homestretch

Science Exploratory 2 Science Exploratory


Students working on Invasive Species Projects using Google Classroom for Science Exploratory Classes. I had the opportunity to teach some classes this week along with Principal duties. It always amazes me how independent students are when given a topic, guidance and allowed to create a project based on a rubric guideline. They did a great job staying focused and working. We are in what I call the Homestretch in Education. May is a wonderful and tough month all wrapped up into one. Field Day, Talent Show, State Testing, Awards, Academics, Spring Sports, Graduation, all fill our days and evenings with exciting events. Take the time to slow down and enjoy each other during these moments as they represent another year of life for a student, parent or educator. A very special time for sure.

Thank an Educator this week as it is teacher appreciation week! I know I still remember my favorite teachers and moments spent with them. What we do each day as educators leaves a lifetime of memories and impacts a student’s life. See the Love and Logic short article at the end. Very fitting all year, but especially in May.
A week of celebrations at RMS. We took the 8th grade class of 2020 to Detroit for a ball game on Thursday. We stayed dry, and tried to stay warm as it was in the low 40’s for temps. We played Tiger Trivia for candy and prizes on the bus going to the game. The students enjoyed themselves eating at a private, elevated food court that was catered and all you can eat. They are a fun group to be around and made up proud with their behavior while we ventured out of Ravenna. On Friday Aubrey and Mr. Dunnuck were honored at the national event of Law Day. This year is the theme was Miranda Rights. Aubrey placed 3rd out of 132 middle school essay contestants. Way to go! Mr. Dunnuck was selected as the Golden Apple Award winner as the top Educator in the county. Thank you to Mrs. Christensen for her efforts in the revision process for all students who wanted to enter. Aubrey was award a cash prize, as well as an educator prize of $50.00. Mr. Dunnuck was award $500.00 for his classroom! That will buy a new stapler for sure! His just broke last week.

Looking ahead this week is always fun with the 7/8th grade dance on Friday night. Our 6th graders travel to MSU on Wednesday. M-step and MAP testing continues along with our everyday educational practices. So busy, but so much fun. Enjoy staff and students!

Taken from Love and Logic: Thank You Teachers
First of all I’d like to apologize to the many teachers of my youth who put their heart and soul into trying to maintain order with me sitting in their classrooms. I wasn’t a downright malevolent child. I simply liked to keep things entertaining by continuously testing the sense of humor of my instructors. My tenth grade biology teacher passed the test with flying colors as he reacted to the cadaver frog I’d managed to hang from the ceiling tile above my desk. “Mr. Fay,” he replied with a dry smile, “life around here would be so dull without you.”
Like many of my teachers, he managed to see the good in me even when I couldn’t see it in myself. Great teachers are like that. Somehow they manage to use their x-ray vision to spot the gifts in even the most difficult kids.
Let’s send a big thanks to educators by helping our kids view them with great respect. A powerful strategy for achieving this goal involves allowing them to overhear us talking positively about their teachers. You’ve probably noticed your children’s eyes glazing over as you’ve tried to lecture them about some essential truth. In contrast, you’ve seen how closely they listen when they see that you’re trying to have a private conversation!
Experiment with this: At least twice a week intentionally let your children overhear you saying something positive about their teachers. Do this for the rest of the school year.
Springtime can be tough for both teachers and their students. Keeping things positive can go a long way toward helping your children learn while showing teachers that we appreciate their hard work and dedication.

Great week at RMS with an awesome PRIDE speaker Jasper Cunningham. The students were engaged with his talk and video presentation. We continue M-Step testing, field trips and are entering the busiest part of the entire year. On Sunday I had the opportunity to attend my first ever FFA Banquet led by AG. Teacher Melanie Block. What a wonderful experience to attend. So many opportunities for our students to practice “soft skills”, communication, leadership and more life skills. Jasper Cunningham was in attendance as well and I was fortunate to have a seat at his table where he explained the FFA programs, students trips, administrator opportunities and even a water act that is a hot topic. Our FFA program is a championship team level program and we were able to salute Mrs. Block with a standing ovation. Pretty special stuff right there in the Educational world. A live auction led by iconic George Herman concluded the night auctioning off FFA members for labor was a big hit! The support from FFA alumni, parents and community members runs strong in Ravenna FFA. What a great feeling. If you have the chance to attend this annual event please join us as you will not be disappointed. #ravennaprideRPS

Have a great week!
