Message From The Principal
It's been a different week on The Ranch. There are a couple of TikTok trends which have impacted our campus. One trend has to do with stealing school property and the other is vandalizing school property. We had a bathroom sink pulled off of the wall which shattered when it hit the ground, soap dispensers pulled off the wall and a toilet paper dispenser destroyed.
Rancho Vista is a different school. I hear so many positive comments from parents and students. Our teachers and staff work very hard to make all students feel welcome and appreciated. It is disappointing that these things happen, that the need for social media attention is greater than the pride some students have in their school.
We will continue in our efforts to make The Ranch a place where all students can have a sense of pride and ownership.
Think different. Be different.
Hispanic Heritage Month
National Hispanic Heritage Month began on Wednesday, September 15, and will run through October 15, giving the United States an opportunity to recognize and celebrate members of our communities and their ancestors who hail from Mexico, parts of the Caribbean, Central and South America and Spain.
"The Latino community and Latino history is a fundamental part of American history," said Emily Key, director of education at the Smithsonian Latino Center. "And recognizing that and understanding that are key reasons why this month is important."
Rather than starting at the beginning of September, Hispanic Heritage Month takes place over 30 days starting on the 15th -- a nod to the anniversaries of national independence for a number of Latin American countries: Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua all recognize September 15 as the date of their independence, while Mexico's independence is celebrated September 16 and Chile celebrates its independence September 18.
Hispanic Heritage Month traces its history to 1968, when the observance was just a week long. President Lyndon B. Johnson signed a bill designating the week of September 15 as "National Hispanic Heritage Week," according to the Office of the Historian and the Office of Art & Archives for the US House of Representatives.
