Message From The Principal

Hello Rancho families!

"The honeymoon is over."

I heard this from a teacher this week talking about how students are feeling about school. Our staff has worked hard to build connections with our students. Teachers have shared their personal stories while listening to students. As important as building relationships is, there is curriculum to be mastered.

Teachers have gradually raised the bar of expectations. Student are being held accountable for their academic progress. Many students are doing great work and finding academic success, while others are still working to find their groove. It is never too late to get started, turn things around and find success.

Think different. Be different.

Students Of The Week

Omarion Ferguson- Omarion is not an 'A" student, but he is Passing all classes with B's and C's. He is very helpful with getting his friends on task in class and always willing to help them when they are struggling. He has a pleasant demeanor that adds positivity to the classroom.

Josh Pearson- Josh comes to class every day and works hard in PE. He has a good attitude, never complains, and is respectful to both myself and his classmates. He is maintaining an A in PE, as well as having all A's and B's in his classes. I appreciate his efforts and am happy to have him in class!

Rene Cortez- I think Rene would be shocked as would most people by my nomination, but he has recently completed a course in credit recovery, which is a very big accomplishment for that class. He also has exceptional attendance for that class as well as the art class I have him in. He has turned in all his assignments and has an A in art as well. he seems to be very motivated and diligent. I am proud of him for getting things done and moving forward by doing the work and being responsible.

Luke Tyndale- Luke works hard in PE and has a great attitude. He is always our Fitness Walk leader and keeps a great pace! I appreciate his efforts and quiet, respectful nature. Keep up the great work Luke!

Christena Simmons- Christena deserves to be student of the week for a variety of reasons. First and foremost, she is a positive influence on campus. She is always very polite, quick to smile and has an overall positive attitude towards life. Along with these qualities she is doing very well in my class. She completes her work in a timely manner and really tries to put effort into her assignments. She is also willing to make corrections based on feedback, which further improves the quality of the work she submits. Christena is an excellent choice for student of the week!
