Department of Defense Education Activity

Ramstein IS: School Activities

All students are encouraged to participate in co-curricular activities whether they be athletic, academic or social in nature. These activities help to shape students and prepare them for the future as part of a well rounded education.

School clubs are a great way to develop new interests and to make new friends. Students can select these activities based on their interests. Several teachers are the sponsors and coordinate the programs with parents, students, and community volunteers. We provide the following clubs/activities:

RIS Ambassadors

Being a RIS Ambassador is a very big honor.  RIS Ambassadors are the face for our school.  RIS Ambassadors will help out with several different things around the school. Some activities we may be a part of include, collecting paper recycling, helping out with new students, helping out with assemblies, school announcements and pledge of allegiance, and any activities that the students come up with to implement.  We will also talk about and do different activities about being a good leader.
