With the big storm coming in, go out and play in the snow. Bundle up, go make some snow angels, snowmen, forts, snowball fights. Pretend like we are kids again. This pandemic has been so hard on everyone. Taker the time to see the beauty in mother nature. We deserve it.
Keep working hard, break is almost here. You got this!
Last one I promise. I know I've already written like 3 things, but I just wanted to thank a few more people: Molly Talbot, Roan, Bella Rose, nick, Doug, Bridget, and everyone else thank you for unforgettable memories. I have so many with each of you. i am thankful for you all and even for friends I've already mentioned. Remember to check in on your friends. Have a wonderful holiday!
I've known you since 6th grade, but we recently have been getting closer though the past two years. It's been so so fun from art class with Ms. Fisher, English with Ms. Bono, and gym with ms Blodget. It's been surreal, and I've had a great time goofing off with you in class and joking around. Thank you for everything, I miss you.

Thank you RHAM students and staff for being strong and wise enough to "choose kind."

This year is almost over, guys. We've GOT THIS!!!! 🙂
To Mr. Martin, I am a student from one of your APUSH classes and I just wanted to say thank you for the words you gave us before our first ever test. After hearing "a grade does not define you," I felt sad and happy because those were the words I feel like I have always wanted to hear, but you were the first to say them to me after 16 years of living. Your words saved me this year, so thank you:)
Thank you to our custodians for keeping our school sparkling clean!
RHAM Paras are always there when you need them!
I am so proud of my students who show up EVERY DAY, even when it's sometimes so very hard. <3 Mrs. Lastrina
hey man 2020 is rough but its almost over

This year has been a mess but my friends have been amazing and so supportive. No matter the distance, no matter the fights, you guys have been there for me no matter what. Thank you for making me laugh and making time to hang out. Molly, Phoebe, Roan, Sasha, Charolette, Kaitlyn, Elyse, Bridget, and more. You all will have a special place in my heart forever.
I miss you guys!! Stay focused and work hard- it’s almost Xmas break! 🙂
2020 has been a very tough year, but it's almost over. It brought plenty of changes into our lives, most being unwelcome. Let's all hope those changes leave as soon as they came.

Thank you for everything. I am a student with you this year, and I can't thank you enough. You always make learning so exciting, and leave me wondering with many thoughts about everything I could possibly think of. Class is so much fun with you, and you always come with a huge smile on your face. You make learning fun, and in your classroom there is no such thing as a wrong answ
We've been friends since 7th grade, and I can't thank you enough for everything you've done. You're a kind hearted soul, and
I know many of the RHAM staff and teachers would agree with me. Thank you for everything dude. You always bring a smile to my face. I love you dude.
In memory of Ms. Bono,
"Do not go gentle into that goodnight.
Old age should burn and rave at close of day.
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.
..Wild men who caught and sang the sun in flight,
And learn, too late, they grieved it on its way.
Do not go gentle into that goodnight."
Stay strong. n.l.
Meg Beirn: You bring laughter to each of my days. I love you. MC
You make RHAM such a beautiful place! Every time I pull in, I can't believe I work at such a well-manicured place. Thank you for the trail work and the support for getting students safely outdoors and in even into the woods!
Thank you all teachers and staff members for all the accommodations you have had to make this year. You have made this year one of the best despite all forces against us!

Cameron, thank you for the candy you gave me as I was going to my car on Friday. You could not know I just read 2 difficult emails, but please know your act of kindness made all the difference in my day. Thank you. Mr.K
During these difficult times, reflect on the social emotional teachings of elementary school, be a BUCKET FILLER, not dipper. With students being split up from friends, Remember the buddy bench-reach out to someone different and make a new friend, You’ll be surprised what it can add to your life once you give people a chance and open up! RHAM you’re amazing! Chose Love!
Thank you to the amazing faculty and staff of RHAM High School. We appreciate all of you and all of your efforts.

I am so thankful for my co-workers and life long friends- I could not have asked for better people to spend my day with.
I hope you all remember even when the days get harder that I am proud of you. All of you at this school deserve something good in your life & please remind yourself you are good enough at least once a day. I promise it gets better in the end.

Live your life to the fullest. Do what makes you happy.
To my best friend Lyric, you are the best person I have ever met. You make me happy and I always appreciate your support and positivity. I have never laughed so hard with someone in my whole life, and I could never ask for a better best friend 🙂
Carry out a random act of kindness, with no expectation of reward, safe in the knowledge that one day someone might do the same for you. Princess Diana
We're all born with selfish desires, so we can all relate to those feelings in others. But kindness is something made individually by each person...so it's easy to misunderstand when others are trying to be kind to you.
Every gender, sexuality, race, etc. matters. Don’t listen to what people say about you because you know yourself best.
