Principal Montgomery on the Family-School-Community Partnership

Hello Wolf Parents,

The Dr. Augustine Ramirez Intermediate School Community wants to thank our parents and caregivers for their support, involvement and encouragement in their student’s lives. The Family-School-Community Partnership is essential for helping students achieve their maximum potential.

The best predictor of student success is the extent to which families encourage learning at home and involve themselves in their child’s education. Research shows that when schools, parents, caregivers, families, and communities work together, students:

  • earn higher grades;

  • attend school more regularly;

  • stay in school;

  • Develop self-confidence and motivation in the classroom

  • Have better social skills and classroom behavior

One area we want to continue to grow is our partnership with monitoring your student’s social media presence and involvement. For the last two years, your student’s social interaction has been centered around their social media usage. Due to the pandemic, they had limited avenues to connect to their peers. Unfortunately, how one becomes popular through social media is by showing/participating in controversial content and the number of “likes” and “re-posts.” Examples of this are students eating painfully hot chips in the “Chip Challenge” causing students to become severely ill and the celebration of vandalizing school property in “Devious Licks.”

Tik Tok followers are now promoting monthly challenges. The October challenge is “Smack a staff member on the backside.” Thankfully, for the first day of October, we have not had a staff member inappropriately touched, but we are having a number of students “smack” other students (all genders) in an unseemly and socially unacceptable manner. Please be aware that “intentional and/or obvious unwelcome or offensive touching” as perceived by the victim is suspendable.

You can help by asking your child for their TikTok login, or ask them to sit with you and together scroll through posted videos.

  • Be aware of what they are exposed to.

  • Be aware of what they find funny or want to try.

  • Be aware of what they post on TikTok and other social media sites like Instagram reels and Snapchat.

Does what your student posts align with the values you’ve instilled at home? Please consider using Family options and Home connect options to set parental limits on their phone, so that you can control the content they are exposed to and participate with.

Thank you for your continued support and partnership. Everyday we celebrate our Wolf Pack back at school and helping our students reach their full potential by following the Wolf Pack Way of:

P = Proactive

A = Accountability

C = Community

K = Kindness

Thank you,

Jennifer Montgomery
