Student Activities

Upstanders Club

Upstanders is a weekly lunchtime club where students can be more than bystanders; when you harness your "bystander power," you stand up for something - therefore, you become an Upstander!  

Students come to meetings to brainstorm ways to help support a positive climate and culture at Ralston, and see what action they can take to help their peers and community.

WEB - Where Everybody Belongs

WEB stands for Where Everybody Belongs.  It is a full-year elective course for aspiring student leaders.  These WEB leaders become mentors for all 6th graders and any new students throughout the year.  As mentors, WEB leaders work to foster a sense of community at Ralston Middle School where all students feel like they belong.  WEB leaders are often out at 6th grade lunches, where they spend time playing and connecting to 6th graders.  They also work to put on Ralston’s new student Orientation and other after-school socials throughout the school year.

Homework Club

Tuesdays and Thursdays from 3:15 - 4:45 in the Library

 

Homework is an important extension of the school’s instructional program.  Students may be assigned 4-6 hours per week of homework, as needed.  Homework is to be a well-established part of your educational program.  Homework forms an important part of every teacher’s grading criteria.  All Ralston students are expected to do and return all homework assignments.  To ensure that both students and parents understand homework assignments, assignments should be recorded in a school planner each day.  Teachers can sign for verification of assignments upon student request. Students are expected to contact a “Homework Buddy” to determine class and homework assignments, to clarify details of assignments and to determine missed assignments due to an absence.  Parent requests for homework can be made via email or leaving a voice mail for their teachers. Homework will be provided if the student is absent beyond three days due to serious illnesses.

SAGA - Sexuality and Gender Alliance

SAGA is a lunchtime club for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, + (LGBTQ+) students and their allies. It is a safe space for all students, regardless of gender identity and sexual orientation, to address LGBTQ+ issues through peer support and school wide activities.
