Principal's Message

Dear Rancho Families,

As we close this outstanding academic year, I want to share some of my thoughts and impressions of the 2013-2014 school year. It went by quick! I feel like I was just walking the blacktop with all of the students during the Halloween parade! Starting the year under the  stars with our outdoor movie, Wreck It Ralph, Bingo Nights, Carnival, incredible assemblies, Camp Arroyo with the 5th graders, Artist Night, Campus Beautification and Spring Fling are just a few of my  highlights.

With the fantastic weather lately, the students appear to be ready for a summer break! The teachers and I have talked with students reminding them we are looking for their best behavior in the classroom, playground, lunch room and all areas of their school day. We expect all students to behave in a safe and respectful manner. We are proud of them and their accomplishments and encourage students to finish out their school year doing their best! Thank you for your continued support! I look forward to seeing you at one of the upcoming events as the school year comes to a close.

I cannot possibly thank everyone in this letter that has volunteered, contributed or supported our school because there are so many people! Whether it was counting box tops, volunteering in the classroom, pulling weeds and painting at the two Campus Beautification Days, creating backdrops for our school plays, serving in the library and on field trips or WHATEVER … I thank everyone who has given their time, talents and treasures to support and improve our school. We could not possibly operate without the support of our teachers, parents and volunteers who give with a generous loving heart.

A big thank you to our Rancho PTA Executive Board led by President Robbie Teruya. Margaret Hackney, Cara Thompson, Kelly Pollard, Kim Korsak, Lynn Kishi, Jennifer Esslinger, Karen Walter, Alana Fife, Brett and Amy Dupuis: these PTA members were paramount in arranging for the many events, trips, assemblies and fundraisers which added to our children’s life experiences. I thank them and all of the many PTA volunteers – it has been a true pleasure working with all of you.

I also want to thank the faculty, staff and custodians for their unending energy and support through the year. They are an amazing group of educators who give of themselves in so many areas of the school day. Each and every one of the Rancho Staff is an integral part of what makes Rancho function and in our case shine! Thank you so much!

As summer is quickly approaching, I am sure that you have some plans to enjoy the weather and the extra time with family. I wish you a wonderful summer – go out and make some extraordinary memories that will last a lifetime! 

                         With something to think about, this is Mr. Martin.

                         Make it a great day, or not … the choice is yours!
