Greetings Ranch Roadrunners,
Welcome to the 2015-2016 school year at Ranch Elementary. I count it a privilege to work with each of you individually, as a team of parents, and as a team of community members as we continue to build a professional learning community where all children from all backgrounds gain confidence in advancing their academic skills.
There is a lot of excitement ahead of us including the implementation of a developmental writing program for students in kindergarten through 6th grade. This writing program will focus on the utilization of thinking maps and writing beyond the elementary years. You can view more information online. We will continue to implement the phonics program for students in kindergarten through 3rd grades and the math curriculum for students in kindergarten through 6th grades. You can review information about these programs on the Wilson Language Training website and on the Education Place website.
See you soon,
Susan Kruse, M.Ed.
