Ramona Terrier News
February 21, 2023
Dear Terrier Students and School Family,
Welcome to another Amazing week at Ramona! This week we are focusing on the P for for Positive in SPARK. Being Positive means you are always making good statements at school. Everyday when you walk around campus it is important to stay positive. One positive act you can accomplish is to smile. Smiling to others helps everyone feel good. We are fortunate you are here at Ramona with us to learn. We care about all of you and will do everything possible to help you. As a reminder there is no school on Friday February 17 and Monday February 20.
Commitment to Excellence on Purpose #4: Are Personally and collectively responsible for our actions and outcomes.
Learning for your mistakes is how we learn with more insight. Whenever your teacher asks you a question or you make a mistake on a test. Make sure to ask yourself how to correct the mistake and learn from the mistake. This will help you internalize the correction.
"The beautiful thing about learning is that no one can take it away from you." — B.B. King.
I am always available to support you if you need anything. Feel free to call the school or email me anytime at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Mr. Joseph Ochoa
Principal of Ramona Elementary
