Welcome Back To School!

We are excited to welcome you to the Ramstein ES Koalas! To help parents and students with the transition to a new school year, we have an orientation for new families to Ramstein ES and a Back to School event for all families planned. Please see the calendar for specific information.

See you in August!

School Activities

We have a variety of After School Clubs for students throughout the year. Clubs are advertised each October and students have the option to select their first and second choice. The club sign-up process is conducted electronically via the sponsor's e-mail and a Google form. Previous clubs include computer, cooking, art, fun fitness, music, chorus, wise kids and marathon club.

At Ramstein ES, we also have an active Parent Teacher Association which provides an opportunity to volunteer and be involved at school. Volunteers are an integral part of home school partnership and we look forward to working with you.
