Rams Pride on Full Display!
The 1st soon-to-be-annual Holiday Hoopla couldn’t have been a bigger success. All our basketball teams showed their stuff. Be it Rams-vs-Rams or Rams-vs-some pretty tough other schools, we put on a show that highlighted our kids and our community’s support. And that support was shown with our voices and our wallets as we put away a lot of doughnuts, dogs and bought some really cool Rams swag. Huge shout-outs to everyone who volunteered their time and effort. And especially to our sponsors Dinkel’s Doughnuts, Byron’s Hot Dogs, Chicago’s Pizza and to Katie Peon at Chase Park for helping make this memorable day a reality. It was a great day to be a Ram!
