A message from our principal

Dear Parents,

Ranch Elementary School has been working hard and continues to work toward excellence in education. We have made continual growth each year and we will continue to do so. As we continue on our path to excellence, we are asking for you to partner with our school in an effort to increase the school’s student achievement scores and to assist your student in being academically successful. We believe the missing link at our school is a committed partnership between the school and home as it relates to your student’s academic success. It is with great excitement we share the adoption of a new model to reach out and facilitate the creation of this partnership.

We look forward to the partnerships that will be established between school and home. The Academic Parent Teacher Team (APTT) meeting will replace the traditional curriculum nights that we hold through-out the course of the school year. We will maintain our traditions of the I Love To Read Week, talent show, and Multicultural Extravaganza.
