Think Win Win, Synergize and Yee-Haws!

Yee-Haws to the Ranch Staff:

I'm so proud to work at Solana Ranch and to work along so many dedicated and talented educators! It was with great (Hawk) pride that I escorted our supportive superintendent, Dr. Lynch, and two of our Board Members, Julie Union and Holly Lewry around our dynamic school. It is exciting to see students engaged in every room in thoughtful, rigorous, collaborative, and purposeful learning.

Go Hawks!

My son keeps a gratitude journal in his 4th grade class. Happiness and gratitude helps in all facets of life. Thank you Julie for sharing this link and thank you to each of you for modeling gratitude to our students! Happiness is contagious.

Talk about Heart, Grit and Persistence. Thank you Sue for sharing.
