Congratulations to the RHS Ram Pride Band for receiving an Excellent Rating at the LINKS Marching Band Competition this past Saturday! Way to go Ram Pride Band! 
We will be presenting Flash Fiction: Stories under 2,000 words. Seems easy enough, right? 

Actually, there’s a lot more to flash fiction than one might initially realize. ​Writing these short shorts can be incredibly rewarding. Distilling experience into a few pages or, in some cases a few paragraphs, forces writers to pay close attention to every loaded conversation, every cruel action, every tender gesture, and every last syllable in every single word.  Join us in A103 on Tuesday after school to share our flash fiction! ​

Teen Read Week is celebrated October 9-15, but we are celebrating all through the month of October in the Ralston High School Library Media Center.
Since the theme for TRW is "Read for the Fun of It,"  we are inviting students to do just that.  Sign up at the circulation desk to read ONE book during the month of October.  That's it, just one book.  It can't be a book you are assigned for class, but a book that you are going to read "for the fun of it."
Once you've completed that book, your name will go in the drawing to win one of four prizes:   Seniors can win a $20 gas card, Juniors can win a pair of movie tickets, Sophomores can win a $20 Target gift card, and Freshmen can win a $20 Barnes and Noble gift card.  
Sign up today!
Jack Martin Photography will be here on Wednesday, October 26 for re-takes and/or make-up photos.  They'll be here during 3rd period lunches.  Order forms are available online under the Document section at the RHS web page.
Mark your calendar for Sweet Treat Night sponsored by Ralston High School October 27th! The event will go from 6:00 PM-7:30 PM. 
Community Service Opportunity
We are looking for volunteers to help with a fitness club at Meadows Elementary every Tuesday,Thursday, and Friday morning.  It starts at 7 a.m. and wraps up at 7:50 a.m. each of those days.  You do no planning- you just show up to help our kids and have some fun. Contact Lisa Schroeder via email: lisa_schroeder@ralstonschools.org.  Let me know which day/days you would be willing to volunteer.  Thanks!

College and Career Center
Juniors and Seniors:  Come sign up for a HUGE college fair.  It is on Sunday, October 23rd.  We will take a bus from the High School to the Sapp Fieldhouse at UNO.  Seriously, over one hundred colleges from all over the country will be there!  Sign up in the College/Career Center.
