We have weekly transportation, curriculum and construction meetings and I am excited about what will be a fantastic building for your child to attend. I have had individual meetings with each staff member of RIS and I can tell you we have an outstanding staff and the support from Central Office has been amazing. Also, there will be a RIS PTO meeting this Thursday where we will be planning the RIS Rally in conjunction with the RIS Open House that will be in August. We will get you the details as we finalize decisions. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me at jason.rettinger@rossrams.com. Go RAMS!

Thank you,
