A Message from the Principal

Dear Ramona Parents,


This week is college week and the kick off for Bullying Prevention Month. Students will participate in different activities throughout the school day that focus on going to college. Teachers will discuss where they attended college and the importance of a college education. I graduated from Westmont College with a Bachelors Degree and a Teaching Credential. I then went on to receive my Masters Degree from Allient IU, and finally my Administrative Credential from California State University San Bernardino.


There are also various activities for Anti-Bullying. Please see all of the details below. Remind your students to always show their SPARK! Have a great week!

The goal: encourage schools, communities and organizations to work together to stop bullying and cyberbullying and put an end to hatred and racism by increasing awareness of the prevalence and impact of all forms of bullying on all children of all ages.
