Principal's Message

Dear Rancho Families,

Walking and biking to Rancho is the way to go! Walking and biking to school can be the healthiest

ways to get to school since your child is getting their daily exercise in and they don’t even know it!

Like adults, kids need exercise. Most children need at least an hour of physical activity every day.

Regular exercise helps children:

  • Feel less stressed
  • Feel better about themselves
  • Feel more ready to learn in school
  • Keep a healthy weight
  • Build and keep healthy bones, muscles and joints
  • Sleep better at night

If your child is younger, consider joining them on the walk or bike ride to school to fit exercise into

your daily routine. The larger the walking or biking group, the more visible they are to motor

vehicles. We recommend that an adult supervises elementary-age walking and biking pools. Check

out these safety tips to help you and your child get started on a healthy way to school!

  • Encourage your child to help choose the safest place to cross the road
  • Practice stopping at the curb, looking left, right, left, listening for traffic and making eye contact with drivers
  • Find all the traffic signs and roadway markings on your route; talk about what these words and symbols mean
  • Talk about ways your child can avoid or minimize dangers along the route: driveways, parked cars, strangers, etc.
  • Observe people walking, cycling, driving or riding cars; talk about the safe and the risky things you see
  • Talk with your child about the buildings, people, animals, landscaping, etc., on your walk
  • Discuss the ways your walking trips benefit your health, safety and quality of life

Warmest regards,

Steve Martin, Rancho School Principal
