Message From The Principal

Hello Rancho families,

"It has certainly been a year like no other." This is been the case for the past few years. It is my hope that all of our students have made new friends, found new passions and been reignited with learning. I am extremely proud of the students, staff and teachers at the Ranch. Most have worked hard, persevered and found success despite numerous challenges. It is time to a a well deserved break.

The Winter Break is a time to rest, rejuvenate and recharge. Time spent with family and friends while making memories is far more valuable than material possessions. Take a walk, go on a hike, visit the beach, get in touch with Nature. Is is good for the soul.

Think different. Be different.

Many teachers will use the time over the break to finish scoring and inputting final grades.

Student Of The Week

Domenick Valadez

Domenick is a hard-working student with lots of charisma and style! He has an infectious personality and a kind heart! Domenick is excellent at time management and tries not to get too distracted by his phone. I look forward to seeing him each day :)

Johnny Meza

Johnny has done a great job over the last week and a half of getting work done and really stepping up to earn passing grades in both Government and U.S. History. To do this he stayed focused in class and also came in and worked on things after school on more than one occasion. Way to finish strong Johnny! Now just keep the momentum for next semester!

Aiden Der

A top notch student in every regard. Not only does he complete all his work in both Business Math and STEM class, but the depth of his responses never fails to impress!
