The Round Up 2021 May 3

Appreciation Week May 3-7

The week of May 3rd through the 7th is Appreciation Week. There are a number of different ways families can show their appreciation for the faculty and staff of Sonoma Ranch. Our PTSO has an amazing week planned. Please follow the link below to learn more!


PTSO elections will take place at their May meeting. If you are interested in helping out this amazing group of people, please email us. There are a lot of different ways to help, and holding a position does not mean that all the responsibility falls to you. It truly is a team that works super hard for the benefit of the students and staff at Sonoma Ranch.

We would love for you to consider helping us. Please send us an email at and we will reach out to you about different ways you can help make the Ranch a great place to teach and learn.

Teacher and Staff Appreciation Week is May 3rd-7th! Would you like to sponsor a gift your child’s teacher or any staff member at SRE? Please visit to find out more and to make a donation! Any questions, please email

Thank you!

We will all continue to wear masks at the Ranch through the end of the school year. Thank you so much for helping to keep everyone safe.

Do Not Come To School

I need to remind everyone that students should not come to school if they, or anyone in their household has tested positive for COVID. Students who are sick or feeling any COVID-like symptoms can’t be on campus.

Optimal Learning Environment

Each Spring we begin the planning process for the next school year. We invite our families to share with us their thoughts on the best learning environment for their student for the next school year. If you would like to submit an optimal learning environment form, please follow the this link:

Lunch (and breakfast) is Free

The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) has extended free meals for children 18 years and younger until further notice to help ensure all children have access to nutritious food as the country recovers from the COVID-19 pandemic.

Gilbert Public Schools will provide combo meals at no cost to students for breakfast and lunch. A combo meal includes an entree, fruit and/or vegetable and beverage (milk and/or juice).

We certainly encourage our families to take advantage of this opportunity.
