Thank you, Ramona, from ‘the quiet arts’
To the Community of Ramona:
You won’t see us at half-time on the football field or advertising for music and dance concerts. The visual arts are the quiet arts. In addition to the responsibilities of teaching, an art teacher must creatively stretch supplies and keep them from growing legs and filtering out of the classroom.
We want to thank the entire community of Ramona for its support of the visual arts at Ramona High School, especially the Olde Ramona Hotel Gallery, Ramona Library, Ramona Real Estate Association, Soroptimists, Vagabond Yoga, Mahogany Mountain Vineyard, the
, and Lezley Knott. Because of you, our students have been the recipients of cash donations for supplies, opportunities to exhibit with local artists, and been privileged to have space donated for a permanent student gallery.
To these folks and the many local artists, parents, and others who have supported the program, a heartfelt THANK YOU. In this strained financial climate, your efforts on our behalf have lightened our year.
Liz Schaude and Paula Payne
Ramona High School art teachers Last big wave goodbye This is Nikki the Bus Driver waving goodbye for the last time from my bus 101 on Wednesday, June 12, 2013. I have had the privilege to drive for the town of Ramona for 25 years. Now it is time for me to retire. I would like to thank all the parents who have trusted me with their students. Believe me, I have been blessed every day with your kids. Some of my students are parents now, and one for sure, Juan, is a grandpa. Wow. I want to thank all the drivers, mechanics, supervisors, and office staff. I am proud to say I have worked with them at Ramona Unified School District Transportation Department. I will truly miss them. God bless you all.
