Ross Middle School Installs R.A.M.S. Wall Promoting Character Development Initiative


Assistant Athletic Director and Ross Middle School Dean of Students, Jason Rettinger, knows that character development represents a critical piece of success in Ross Local Schools.  With one foot in the world of Ross Middle School and the other foot in the world of Ross Athletics, Rettinger also knows that he’s in a prime position to affect great change in the Ross community.  The acronym R.A.M.S., which stands for Respectful, Accountable, Motivated, Service, marks the central foundation of Rettinger’s character development initiative that he previously implemented for several years at the helm of the Ross Baseball program.  When he  became the RMS Dean and RLS Assistant AD, it was only a matter of months before he found a way to broadcast this character message to the world.  Securing funding from several organizations, including Ross Baseball and Ross Athletics, Rettinger had the wall “wrapped” during the weeks leading up to the first day of school.
