Image

In July, four Ramona students will travel to Holy Names University in Oakland with Sister Anna Keim and Ms. Maggie Averill. Kamila Campos, Laurencia Botts, Alyssa Macias, and Hilda Barraza will represent Ramona ant the week-long SNJM Youth Justice Forum. They will be joined from students from other SNJM's in Canada and the United States as well as Lesotho. The focus of the week will be on the Sisters of the Holy Names Corporate Stands on water, immigration, and human trafficking. They will receive input, share ideas with their peers, participate in service projects and come back to Ramona prepared to share what they learned and take a leadership role in peace and justice activities here at Ramona. On Thursday after school we will held a special prayer service to bless them and send them forth as our representatives.

JOIN US FOR SUMMER SCHOOL - TAKE ARCHERY, VISUAL ARTS, OR TRIGONOMETRY

Image

Become an archer this summer!

 

Archery Champs is bringing their program to our campus. Each day every student will learn and practice a new archery skill and then finish the day with an exciting game like Exploding Balloons and Archery Tic Tac Toe. Bring your friends and learn a new skill! This class is open to both junior high and high school students.

Are you entering PreCalculus next year?

 

Join our summer trigonometry class to improve your critical thinking skills and problem-solving abilities. This class will meet only three times per week, giving you plenty of free time to continue to enjoy summer vacation! Be a more confident math student next year by continuing to strengthen your skills.

Would you like to take visual arts this summer to satisfy one semester of your arts requirement?

 

Take Visual Arts and develop your drawing skills and techniques. Most of the assignments focus on drawing from observation. Students will be able to express their creativity with projects using a variety of media including pencil, charcoal, pastel, ink, and prisma color. The extended class time enables students to maintain their focus and work through an assignment in one or two classes rather than having to start, stop, and clean up at short intervals.


Students who have taken VA I and II may enroll for a single semester of VA III in the summer.

SUMMER FINANCIAL LITERACY BOOTCAMP AT LOYOLA MARYMOUNT UNIVERSITY (LMU)

Financial Literacy is the ability to understand how money works in the world: how someone manages to earn it or make it, how that person manages it, how he/she invests it (turn it into more), and how that person donates it to help others. The Save it Forward Initiative at LMU will be offering a four-day educational program introducing students to the fundamentals of saving, budgeting, and investing money. Four different sessions held in June, July, and August are offered. Their mission is to build a happier and more prosperous world through financial literacy education!
