December / January 2019


Dear Parents & Families,

Happy New Year! We are beginning a new year full of hope and promise. We are excited about all the growth happening in our school. Our students are growing physically and academically. With professional development, our teachers are growing and applying best practices in the classroom and inspiring our future scientists, artists, and writers. Our enrollment is growing so we reach out for your continued help to promote our school.

Please share what is going on in your child's classroom or at our school. Please use social media for positive sharing. Share our posts on Facebook. Invite friends and family to celebrate Rama Road by coming in for a tour or joining for Doughnuts w/Denny on January 18. We encourage you to share a positive review on our Rama Road Facebook page at:

We have quite a few things on the calendar coming up. Please review this carefully so you can plan to be involved over the next month and a half.

Second quarter is already a tremendous success and will continue strong into midyear. Thank you for your continued support of our school and our learners!

Rama Proud,

Patricia Denny, Principal
