Happy Sunday Ramirez Families!

Dear Families,


Welcome to the 2021-2022 school year! I am Mrs. Arronda Douglas, the Assistant Principal of Dr. Augustine Ramirez Intermediate School. We are thrilled that your student(s) will be joining us this school year and that your family and your Ramirez family will be working together as part of the "village" that it takes to support, educate, and nurture a child.


Wow!


We have so much to look forward to, gathering together again. We are excited to be welcoming our 7th and 8th grade students to this new school year!


I hope your summer has been a great one and that you were able to enjoy family time, downtime, and some time to relax and reflect. For families that are new to Ramirez, this parent newsletter will come to you weekly, every Sunday except during our holiday breaks (Thanksgiving, Winter, Spring). Of course, if you have questions about the information in the newsletter, feel free to reach out to me at Arronda.Douglas@cnusd.k12.ca.us or (951) 736-8241.


For now, strap yourself in and get ready for the thrills, the joy, the relationships, and the learning your student will experience on their 2021-2022 Road Trip they are taking this school year! PLEASE READ TO THE VERY END OF THE NEWSLETTER!


Mrs. Douglas
