Principal's Message

Greetings Ralston Scholars and Parents!

As principal of Ralston Intermediate School, it is my pleasure to welcome you to the 2021-2022 school year. The staff and I are looking forward to a great year filled with academics, positive experiences, and fun!

 We’ve been through a challenging time due to the COVID-19 pandemic and it is exciting that our plan for 21-22 is to return to 5 full days of in-person instruction that is now possible due to the revised guidance from the California Department of Public Health. Additionally, we will not be offering distance learning as an option beginning in the fall of 2021. 

 Our goal at Ralston is to help each scholar feel welcome, connected to learning, safe and part of the Ralston family. We strive to challenge each scholar and provide them with a rigorous curriculum. Your scholar will experience a variety of learning opportunities and will be supported so they can reach their personal best. Teachers will make knowledge accessible to your student by integrating effective instructional strategies and technology. We believe that all scholars should graduate from high school prepared for post-secondary education, career and be productive members of society.

 We encourage parent involvement and support at Ralston. There are many things you can do to help your scholar achieve success at Ralston including: 1) support and encourage them to complete their homework on a daily basis, 2) communicate with teachers and staff, 3) use the Parent Portal to monitor your scholar’s grades and assignments and 4) check their planner on a regular basis. By working together, we can ensure your scholar has a successful year at Ralston.

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

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