Fidget Spinners Banned for 2017-2018
Monday, June 26, 2017 4:20 PM

Fidget spinners will not be allowed at Justice Page Middle School in the next school year. While they are marketed as a focus tool, they are likely to be more distracting than they are beneficial.

For more information on the spinner phenomenon, see this New York Times article.

Sports Physicals

Is your student planning to participate in school athletics in the next school year? Don't wait for the fall rush to get sports physicals taken care of!

Students can get physicals with their family doctor, or by making an appointment at a school based clinic. School based clinics are operating in June and July at least one day per week per school; there is additional availability in August. Clinic addresses and contact information can be found here. Call the clinic to set up an appointment.

Sports physical release forms are here.

Additional athletic eligibility information is here.

It's Official: Justice Page Middle School
Wednesday, June 14, 2017 4:30 PM

From Principal Rathke:

I am pleased to announce that the MPLS Board of Education unanimously voted to change the name of Ramsey Middle School to Justice Page Middle School. I am beyond excited and thrilled for the opportunity to share in this moment with our students, staff and community.

This is evidence of commitment, hard work, creating opportunities for students and our students voices being heard. In my opening letter to families last year, I stated that Ramsey creates world changers! I had no idea that this was the adventure we would experience our first year together.
