Ramona Convent Secondary School: Out with the Old, In with the New

In just a few days Ramona’s campus will come to life with students and faculty returning for the 2016-2017 academic year. Our Link Leaders will be preparing for orientation, while Student Council is busy planning for the events of the year, and faculty will be arranging classrooms, exploring new technology, and creating lessons for the upcoming year. This past week has been far from quiet with final campus improvements under way.

Last Friday was exciting as large cranes lifted off the old HVAC units from the Dufresne building and lifted on the newer, more efficient ones (shown above). This week has been spent installing them, connecting thermostats, repairing the roof, and making sure everything will operate correctly.

While cutting down the coral trees behind the library (victims of the drought) was sad, beautiful new crepe myrtle tress ready to burst into bloom have been planted. The pink crepe myrtle trees in the middle of the campus are a magnificent blaze of color, guaranteed to bring a smile to your face, and the new banners along the entrance will highlight some of the wonderful things happening at Ramona. You may even see your daughter on one of them.

Ramona Convent owes a huge thank you to Oliver Truong, facilities manager, and his crew Sal Bahana, Aurora Magana, David Velasco, and Joe Flores, as well as the student workers for all of the cleaning, painting, and repair work done over the summer.
