Principal's Corner

Welcome Koalas!

Dear Ramstein Elementary School Parents,

Ramstein Elementary School would like to welcome all students and families to our community. Our current enrollment is approximately 860 students in grades pre-kindergarten through second grade.

We believe that the best education can be achieved through teamwork. When home, school and community combine energy and talent we see amazing results. We encourage families to be active participants in the education process. Volunteers enrich and support the curriculum through diverse activities and are always welcome at our school. We are fortunate to have a very strong Parent Teacher Association (PTA) and they are always looking for members. There is also a School Advisory Committee (SAC) that is comprised of parents and teachers who support our efforts.

Parent and family-oriented activities support our 21st Century Learning. Family activities include the Fall Fitness Walk, Art Extravaganza, Lego Bingo, Father/Daughter and Mother/Son dances, Read Across America Week with the Character Parade, Volksmarch, and June Bug-Out. Of course, Kelly Koala (our mascot) attends as many of the events as he can.

Ramstein Elementary School provides quality programming to ensure student success. In addition to a rigorous classroom, students receive whole class services from the Counselors and School Nurse. They participate in Music, Art, and PE classes. Classes regularly visit the Information Center (Library), and the computer labs. We offer four Multi-Age Classrooms (grades 1 and 2 combined). We also offer clubs for the students, such as, Marathon Club, Hand Bells, Art Club, Computer Club, and STEM Club.

Some of the additional programs and services provided are Sure Start, Pre-School Children with Disabilities Program (PSCD), Gifted Education (GT), Special Education Services (SPED), Literacy Instruction (LLI), English as a Second Language Program (ESOL), Individual and Small Group Counseling, and Psychological Services.

Welcome to the Ramstein Elementary family where EVERY day is a Koality Day my friends!
