We Engage We Educate We Inspire

Hello Stallions!

We had a great week last week at the Ranch! The highlight was of course Halloween! The day began with our annual Monster Mash Parade! It was great fun to see almost all our students dressed up for the parade. Thank you to everyone who was able to join in the early morning fun. We then moved into the gym for an AMAZING musical program performed by our 4th Graders. They did a great job! Congratulations to Mrs. Munley, Mrs. Nguyen, Mrs. Linden, Ms. Lawson, and all our talented Stallions. It was an awesome day at the Ranch. Check out the highlights below.

Each year there are students who for one reason or another don’t have a costume for Halloween. If you have a costume that is in good shape and that won’t be used again in your house, please consider donating them to us. We will make the costumes available each year to our students. Thank you so much for your support.

PTSO Color Fun Run money is due Wednesday, Nov 6th. The assembly at which we will hand out prizes will be Wednesday, November 20th. The website is still open to receive your donation. Please go to to make a donation for the Color Fun Run!
