 Mrs. Clarissa Ramirez, Principal

Dear Ramirez Families,

Let me begin by expressing to you I am honored to be the Principal at Alfonso Ramirez Elementary school.  I feel truly blessed to be the Instructional Leader of such a remarkable school community.

I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself to those who are new to the campus. My name is Clarissa Iris Ramirez. I received my Bachelor of Science from Texas A&M University in College Station and my Masters of Education at the University of Texas Pan American in Edinburg.  I have been dedicated to the field of education for more than 23 years. During this time, my experiences include teaching elementary for ten years and being an assistant principal for 3 years in the Rio Grande City school district. I spent 6 years in the position of Curriculum Assistant at Cayetano Cavazos Elementary with the Edinburg school district and starting my 5th year as Principal of Ramirez Elementary.

Here at Ramirez Elementary, we pride ourselves on our dedication and enthusiasm to help students succeed and enjoy learning. Our mission is to provide academic and social experiences for your children that are rigorous, relevant and build strong character.  I intend to continue this path of commitment to your children and always make decisions that are in their best interest.

Your children are my top priority. In addition to the high academic expectations I hold for them, I also want them to feel a sense of belonging.   I want them to take pride in this school and in this community.  It is my goal they experience a safe, loving, and caring environment when they enter the doors of Ramirez Elementary.

I believe every child is capable of accomplishing great things, and each one can have a positive impact in our community and future as well.  For this reason, I ask for your support in our efforts to continue the tradition of excellence that Ramirez Elementary strives for.

I thank you for your support, and I look forward to the upcoming school year. Together let’s continue to strive for excellence and keep Ramirez Elementary the BEST school in ECISD!

If at any time you have questions, concerns, or suggestions, feel free to contact me at
