Principal's Message

Greetings Ralston Scholars and Parents!

As principal of Ralston Intermediate School, it is my pleasure to welcome you to the 2019-2020 school year. I would like to officially welcome our new scholars and welcome back our 8th graders. The staff and I are looking forward to a great year filled with learning, positive experiences, and fun!

The beginning of a new school year is an exciting time. Our goal is to help each scholar feel welcomed, prepared to learn, and connected to the Ralston family. We strive to challenge and provide each scholar with a rigorous curriculum. Your scholar will experience a variety of learning opportunities. Each student will be supported academically and emotionally so they will be able to achieve their personal best. Teachers will make knowledge accessible to your student by integrating effective instructional strategies and technology.

We believe that all scholars will graduate from high school and be prepared for post-secondary education and career goals, as well as be productive members of society.

We encourage parent involvement and support at Ralston. Your involvement in your child’s education is important and sends a positive message. Although the ways you are involved may change at the middle school level, your involvement is still valued and appreciated.

There are many things you can do to help your scholar achieve success at Ralston including:

• Support and encourage your student to complete his/her homework on a daily basis,
• Communicate with teachers and staff
• Use the Parent Portal to monitor your scholar’s grades and assignments
• Check the student planner and school web site on a regular basis.

By working together, we can ensure your scholar has a successful year at Ralston.

It is an honor to serve as the principal of Ralston Intermediate School. It is a privilege to be part of community where parents and staff work together to build positive relationships that support academic and socio-emotional growth of students.

Please feel free to introduce yourself and share your ideas with me and the staff.

Once again, welcome back! I look forward to another fantastic year!

Eagle Pride!

Sincerely,

Ruth Gómez Dietze

Principal
