We Engage We Educate We Inspire

Hello Stallion Families,

The Six Pillars of Character are part of the Sonoma Ranch culture. Teaching the Pillars is embedded within teachers’ lessons and is a focal point of our monthly Stampedes. One of the Pillars of Character is Caring. Being kind and compassionate and helping people in need are certainly characteristics we hope to model and reinforce here at the Ranch.

We will continue our tradition of giving this holiday season. Students and their families have the opportunity to give directly to Sonoma Ranch families in need. Ornaments on the tree in our office will have wish list items for students and their families. Your student may simply choose an ornament from the tree and show it to our office staff. Then return the wish list item wrapped, with the ornament taped to the package.

Our Student Council will again be sponsoring a food drive. They are collecting non-perishable food items for the entire month of December. All donated food will go to the Open Arms Pantry which serves the Gilbert community.

We know there are many opportunities for holiday giving through employers, churches, and communities. We also know that schools are always asking for parents’ donations and support. We at Sonoma Ranch Elementary appreciate your helping us continue our tradition of caring.
