Ramsey Review:

  • Dear Ramsey Families,

     

    Did you know that your child learned all about blood and guts this week?!= Some of them even saw a real human brain!  That’s right! We were fortunate to have the Pacific Science Center visit our school on Thursday and Friday with their Blood and Guts program!  It was AMAZING!  Students got to attend an assembly, explore an exhibit about space, and have a classroom lesson from a Pacific Science Center teacher!  There was even a great picture in the CDA Press this morning of all the action!   

     

    We have some other GREAT news!  We just received a $5,000 grant from the Idaho Community Foundation to help us purchase a class kit of Google Expeditions!  With this kit, classrooms next year will be able to go on virtual reality field trips to more than 600 places around our world!  We are excited for teachers to be able to start using this tool in September to teach engaging Science lessons.  To learn more about Google Expeditions and watch a video, click HERE.  

     

    Our school is extremely busy at the end of the year.  That being said, we would love your help supporting many different activities at school:

    1. Our blood drive deadline is fast approaching!  We need about 13 more donors for our blood drive to reach our goal!  Sign up here to donate on Wednesday, May 31st, so you can give blood and give to our school (a $1,500 grant is on the line). Please consider joining the others who have signed up to donate! Thank you!

    2. Our Beach Day committee is looking for more helpers on June 8th at Ramsey.  Click HERE to sign up to help make this day a memorable one for our kids.

    3. As a reminder, Run for 271 is Saturday, June 3rd.  Go to www.RunFor271.org for information and to register or you may pick up a registration form at the office.  If you want a t-shirt, you must register by May 28th. This is a fun event and benefits Ramsey's PE program!  

     

    As we are beginning to look at the 2017-2018 school year, we know many are thinking of their children’s classroom placement for next year. We would like to remind you, that at Ramsey, we do not accept teacher requests. We trust our dedicated, student-centered staff. As they work each year to build class lists for the next grade level, they take many issues into consideration, such as teacher-student fit, student group dynamics, and balancing everyone’s needs. They create the lists with tremendous professionalism and care. Because of these reasons, we have decided not to take teacher requests unless some extenuating circumstance exists.

     

    With the year drawing to a close, please check your student’s lunch account and pay the remaining balance if you have one. We have many accounts in the red, some into the hundreds of dollars. Thank you for helping us balance the books here!

     

    Let’s finish with some good news for our weekly review!  We can officially report to you that we are about 99% done with state testing!  Boom!  Our students performed fabulously!  We eagerly anticipate getting scores for our school to help guide future instruction.  

     

    Thank you for your ongoing support of Ramsey! Let’s finish strong in the last three weeks!

     

    Warmly,

     

    Crystal Kubista, Principal

    Aaron Drake, Assistant Principal
