Principal's Message

Hello Ramona Families,

Welcome to Ramona Elementary School, home of the Roadrunners.  We look forward to a fabulous year full of learning!

Ramona is an AVID Elementary School.  We believe that college preparedness starts when children are young. Our teachers are trained in AVID and reinforce academic behaviors and higher level thinking skills from kindergarten through fifth grade to help students develop the academic habits they will need as they progress through middle school, high school and college.   We want to close the aheivement gap by instilling in all of our students the belief that individual determination can and will help them advance and achieve the goals they set for themselves. 

To promote college readiness, each teacher will speak about where they went to college and post the name of their college and degrees in their classroom window. College vocabulary specific to each grade level will be reviewed and discussed on a continual basis. 

Please partner with as as we create a positive school culture fostering individual student success. We urge you to become involved! Join School Site Council or the English Language Acquisition Committee. Volunteer in your child’s classroom. Our PTA has some wonderful Family Academic Nights planned this year in science, math and language arts; bring your child to each one.

We appreciate your support and look forward to working with you.
