  • Congrats Ramona Band and Orchestra...

    Check out the trailer to the upcoming music video for the track “It’s On Again” featuring Alicia Keys, Kendrick Lemmar, Pharrell Williams and Hans Zimmer. Notice that orchestra in the middle of downtown LA? Those students are at Ramona right now! The Ramona Band and Orchestra got to sit in on this video shoot and be part of an experience they will remember forever. What an awesome experience for our students to get to be on set for this production and part of the new Spiderman movie.

  • Testing

    Parents & Guardians of Ramona Students,

    The State of California has modified the Standardized Testing and Reporting (STAR) system for the 2013-14 school year in preparation of the transition to Common Core and the Smarter Balanced Assessments. As we have adjusted to the changes made by the State, it has become necessary to modify the bell schedule and collaboration days for the month of April. We want to make sure you are aware of all of the changes so that you can make any arrangements that may be necessary.

    In order to accommodate the required testing and have as little impact as possible on students not testing, we will be moving the collaboration day in April from Wednesdays to Mondays. This change is in effect for the four Mondays in April only (4/7, 4/14/, 4/21, & 4/28). School will end at 2:00 PM on those days.

    The weeks of April 7th & April 14th, school will get out at the normal time of 2:50 PM (Tuesday – Friday). However, we will be on a special testing schedule for the weeks of April 21st & April 28th. School will conclude at 2:00 PM Monday – Friday for those two weeks. A copy of the bell schedule and this letter can be found on the school website at http://www.rusdlink.org/Domain/49.

    Please contact the school should you have any questions or need any further clarification.

    Thank you,

    Charles Hyde Assistant Principal Attendance & Testing

    Congratulations History Day Winners!
    This past Saturday the Riverside County History Day Competition was held at Ramona High School.  I apologize already if a few desks are moved slightly in some rooms.  We did everything in our power to try to make sure that it would seem that we weren't even there.  Beyond that, we have some exciting news to share.

    5 Ramona High School Students (all 5 who were competing) placed in their categories and will move on to the State History Day Competition at the end of April!  Please join me in congratulating them around campus this week!

    Placing 3rd in Riverside County with their group website: "World War II: The Japanese American Injustice" - Christopher Bell, Sajem Brown, and Bryan Caridad.

    Placing 2nd in Riverside County with his individual exhibit: "Silent Spring" - Kieran Silva.

    Finally, placing 1st in Riverside County with his individual performance: "The Rights and Responsibilities of the First Crusade" - Isaiah Morrow.

    We are proud of all of them, and their hard work is definitely showing.  Next up is the State History Day Competition which will be held at the Riverside Convention Center this year from April 25-27.  We will be sharing more information as time approaches, including opportunities to go and see the exhibits and performances and cheer on our students at that time.

    Date Festival exhibit
    Seven seniors and one junior from Ramona High School in Riverside participated in the Riverside County Date Festival’s high school art exhibit, each taking home a prize.
    The February exhibit displayed art from students from across the county.
    Pieces by Juanito Vasquez and Krystal Martinez took best in class. Both artists received a cash prize and plan to participate in the American Museum of Ceramic Art biannual High School Exhibit.
    Juanito’s project, “Small Block Dreams,” was designed after an engine block. He created his piece using clay, glaze and paint. The stand was created using real engine pistons and wrenches that Juanito welded together.
    Krystal’s bowl took best in show in wheel. Her bowl was created using clay, underglaze and glaze, and was high fired. She hand painted the motif in the center.
    Citlaly Chandler’s “Soladera” took first place in the hand-built ceramic category.
    Meagan Isaiah’s “Warhol Woof” took first place in the wheel category.
    Alex Serrafin’s “Bambi” took second place in the hand-built category.

  • What would most help all students to be successful?

    In the coming weeks, you will be asked to give your thoughts on this question: “What would most help all students in RUSD to be successful?” We need to hear from you as our district begins putting together its Local Control and Accountability Plan. Districts throughout California are crafting these plans, which signal a significant change from the state-controlled “one size fits all” educational plans of the past to a more locally-minded plan that specifically addresses the needs of our students here in Riverside. Make sure to have your voice heard! Come of one of the community meetings, included one right here at our school. You can find a full list of meeting dates and times at: www.successforstudents.org. You also can share your ideas at this website.
