A message from our principal

Ranch Families,

Thank you so much for being involved in your child’s education. I am delighted to report that we had an 89% participation rate in parent/teacher conferences. Working together to meet the academic needs of our students is our goal.

Please provide a quiet spot at home for your child to do homework, check your child’s progress often in Jupiter and Renaissance Learning (Accelerated Reader & Accelerated Math), and communicate with your child’s teacher. If you need login information contact your child’s teacher or the front office.

Please mark your calendar for the next Academic Parent Teacher Team meetings.

Tuesday, January 27—PreK, kindergarten, 1st grade 6:00–7:00 p.m.
Wednesday, January 28—2nd–4th grades 6:00–7:00 p.m.
Thursday, January 29—5th–6th grades 6:00–7:00 p.m.

During this time we will discuss where your child stands academically and review DIBELS, Galileo, and STAR testing data and how it compares to other students at your child's grade level. We will also establish individual and class goals.
