NOTE FROM THE PRINCIPAL...

Thank you for all the sweet treat and breakfast/lunch food donations for staff appreciation week. The staff and I are touched by your thoughtfulness.


We had our monthly PTO meeting last night. We are in the process of securing a slate of officers for the board to continue as a PTO. Our PTO does a great job providing enrichment activities for our students and families, as well as, additional supplies for classrooms such as Chromebooks. We are in need of a president to run the PTO next year. You don't have to do anything special to join. If you are a parent at Foskett Ranch School, you are part of the PTO. If you have any questions about the position and/or are interested in serving in that position next year, please contact me.
