Ramona Embraces Tradition and Sisterhood with Annual Junior Ring Ceremony
The Junior Ring Ceremony is a long-standing and cherished tradition. Planned by the senior class, the ceremony is designed to remind both classes of the meaning of the rings, the importance of the Ramona sisterhood and the bond that exists between the two classes. Senior class president, Anette G., recited “Phenomenal Woman” by Maya Angelou, congratulated the juniors on taking part in the special ceremony, and praised them all for being phenomenal women.
One by one, as their names were read, each junior came forward to receive the traditional yellow rose, a ring pop, and their own school ring from a senior. Emily L. ’19 prepared a beautiful video filled with messages of love and support from the class of 2019.
After everyone enjoyed the video, Sr. Kathleen concluded the ceremony by reminding both classes of the commitment that their ring symbolizes. A commitment to live up to the values which they learned here at Ramona, to show respect for themselves and others, to live up to their own sense of personal integrity, and to use their God-given talents for the benefit of others, to remain connected to their school after they graduate, and above all to be faithful to their God who loves them and keeps them in existence.
Ramona Convent thanks all parents and friends who attended the ceremony to celebrate with their phenomenal daughters.
