Get to Know Us!
Ramsey Magnet School of Science is a National Title One School.
At Ramsey, we have:
Big School... Bigger Heart!
We made it! We have had a tremendous year, and we cannot give enough credit to our amazing staff, students, and families. Ramsey Magnet School of Science is one incredible place. We enter next year with a strong mission: “Empowering students to inquire, discover, and achieve.”
We enter next year with a strong focus to fund a “Smart Lab” at Ramsey. We have already been working hard to begin marketing for our gala fundraising event at the CDA Eagles on Saturday, November 4th. Please mark your calendars for this event. To find out more about our vision, please enjoy this video HERE that we put together for YOU!
We have several events to add to your calendar this summer:
Free summer meals will take place at Borah, Hayden Lake, and Winton Elementary Schools from June 15th - August 18th. Any child aged 1-18 may come and eat breakfast and/or lunch for free. Adults may eat breakfast for $2.40 or lunch for $3.65. Breakfast is served from 8:00 - 9:00 a.m., and lunch is served from 11:00 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.
A meet-and-greet for grades 2-5 is from 3:30 - 5:30 on August 29th. Come find out your student’s teacher for 2017-18, drop off school supplies, and see the classroom. This is a casual event and families can stop by at any time.
Our Back-to-School Orientation for grades K-1 is on August 30th from 5:30 - 7:00. This will be a formal presentation from the teachers to find out more about Ramsey with the hopes of making the first days of school for the little ones a smooth transition for everyone.
On September 21st, we will have our Open House BBQ for all families from 5:30-7:30. This will be a chance to hear about the specifics of your child’s classroom, curriculum, other program information, and volunteer opportunities.
Online registration will take place from July 17th - 25th. You can also register your child(ren) at Ramsey on August 17th from 12:00-6:00 if you do not choose to register online.
Our local libraries have fantastic programs for children of all ages. We invite you to check them out this summer.
We wish special congratulations to our kitchen manager, Michael Collum. He will be retiring from our school district! We thank Michael for his years of service to Ramsey students and families. Additionally, we wish Natalie Heyn and Amy Wearne the best as they pursue other professional opportunities. Natalie has accepted a teaching position in the Silver Valley, and Amy is pursuing another passion of health coaching. We welcome two new 5th grade teachers, Mr. Scott Busch and Mrs. Liz Smith to the Ramsey family. We also would like to welcome back Mrs. Danielle Kuntz who will be team-teaching with Mrs. Gray in 3rd grade.
All in all, it has been quite a year. We have learned an immense amount as Ramsey’s leaders, and we feel blessed to have such support--from our students, from our staff, from our district, and from our Ramsey families. Taking in Beach Day yesterday was a fitting capstone. Ramsey staff and parents worked together to create a fun, exciting day for our 765 students. We cannot thank you enough for your time and talents all year long. We also truly appreciate your patience with us. We know how hard our students and staff have worked this school year. Please, please, please don’t let your students’ learning slide over the summer. Let’s keep climbing to new heights together!
