Hello Bulldog Families.
Well, this is finally a wrap! It’s been a great school year with lots of excitement and energy with the anticipation of the new building in the fall.
There are some important August dates that are at the bottom of this document, so you may want to review them for future planning.
Just a quick reminder: if you need to get in touch with us throughout June or July, please use email. This will likely be the best way to contact us. There is demolition starting during the afternoon of May 22nd, so all of the office staff and administrative staff will be working in other locations.
Thank you for supporting us throughout the school year. We wish all of you a wonderful summer, and can’t wait to see your students back at school on September 5, 2023.
In service to our Bulldogs.
Andrea Conner, High School Principal

Spanish National Honor Society Induction
The Las Ramblas chapter of Sociedad Honoraria Hispanica was pleased to induct 29 new members this past Friday. This Spanish Honor Society organization is available for students studying Spanish at a high level that meet a national GPA requirement. We're excited to welcome them to Las Ramblas, as well as send off our 11 seniors who wore their new graduation regalia to the induction ceremony. Great job and congrats to all involved!
