Dear Ramona Families,
Welcome back to a brand new school year. All around Ramona, there is evidence that a new year has just begun! The campus is clean thanks to our hardworking custodians, our new textbooks have arrived and our teachers returned to work early to plan and prepare for the upcoming year. I look forward to working together with you to provide a quality education for all Ramona scholars.
Our district theme for the new school year continues to be “Standard of Excellence; Nothing Less” and at Ramona, we want to build on our positive results and successes in order to fulfill our mission of empowering each child to reach their full potential. We are proud to begin this year as a Gold Ribbon School. We received the award for our strong RTI program at all grade levels. Our instruction is ensuring that every student is showing growth in language arts and experiencing success. Gold Ribbon status means that our program is a model for other schools to observe and replicate. We are proud of this achievement and it would not be possible without 100% effort on everyone’s part. Ramona has a wonderful team of teachers, staff, students, and parents!
As always, we believe that when home and school work together, there is no end to what our students can achieve. For more specific information, please join us at Back to School Night on Thursday, September 15th. On this important night, you will visit your child’s classroom and hear about the exciting learning opportunities that lie ahead for the school year.
Finally, the procedures and guidelines for drop-off and pick-up were sent home at the beginning of the year. Please review them bearing in mind that student safety is our top priority at Ramona. Let’s start the new school year out right by observing traffic and safety rules and laws before and after school. Thank you for your help and cooperation with this very important endeavor. I look forward to seeing you all on campus this year and working together to provide a quality education for all students at Ramona.
