Dear Parents and Community Members,
Ranchito Elementary School is an outstanding and safe place for students to learn. I feel so fortunate to be part of this awesome team and great community. Our teachers, teacher assistants, special education and itinerant staff work relentlessly to make sure that our students improve academically, socially and emotionally.
In addition our parent support staff collaborates with outside agencies to provide parent training classes to assist with effective parenting strategies.
I want to thank all our parent volunteers for their support and I want to encourage you to continue supporting classrooms, parent center and school wide activities.
We have an outstanding office staff that are caring, professional and hard working, making sure that parents, students and staff are supported on a daily basis. Our custodial staff maintains our school campus clean and beautiful and our cafeteria staff makes sure that your child eats nutritious meals daily.
In the last two years and presently Ranchito has gone and is going through several beautification programs such as: landscaping, inside/outside painting, new tile flooring, apparatus padding, office and restrooms renovation etc. These projects will continue until the end of the school year. We thank our staff and parents for their flexibility and patience.
Instructionally we have been selected as a Practitioner 2.0 School and our students and teachers have access to the integration of technology in each classroom to be able to compete in the 21 Century. As a School of Advance Studies we offer a challenging, high level integrated instructional curriculum for students to be college/career ready.
My gratitude and appreciation to our parents, who make every effort to attend parent meetings, meet with your child's teacher, and communicate with school personnel when needed. More importantly, thank you for bringing your child on time, on a daily basis and ready to learn. You are your child's first teachers, where they learn respect, discipline, courtesy, honesty, hard work and responsibility.
Thank you for your trust and support.
Song Lee, Principal
