Dear Friends and Families of Los Ranchos,
We enjoyed an outstanding performance from our 6th grade band this week. You too can enjoy them at Open House on Thursday, May 25. Our sixth grade band will kick off the evening with a short performance from 5:45 - 6:00 p.m. in the quad. In addition to visiting your childrens’ classrooms, make sure you go to the multipurpose room. Our P.E. teachers will have activities for your children to demonstrate the great things they are learning in P.E. and more music videos will be showing in the library.
Los Ranchos students did a great job raising and donating money for Hunger Awareness Day. Sandie the Sandwich helped to get the word out. I was heartened by all the stories of students washing cars, doing extra chores and dipping into their Piggy Banks to donate their dollar or dollars to out local Food Bank. With Sandie the Sandwich’s help in drumming up enthusiasm, we raised $505.52! The Student Council will be presenting a check to the Food Bank during our last assembly.
Our Family Picnic is coming soon! Grab your picnic blanket and basket and join us on Friday, June 2. Lunch will be from 12:15 to 1:00. We know there are some parents who can’t make it during lunch so plan on making extra room on your blanket to include extra friends and classmates. We invite you to bring an extra blanket or two. We will have music too, thanks to a Nikki’s family with Kramer Events, Inc.
I hope you enjoy a lovely weekend.

Fidget spinners seem to be the new craze. Our school considers these fidget spinners to be toys and they are not allowed at school.
Students may see some fidgets spinners in classroom. In these cases they are owned by teachers and are being used for a specific purpose.
Please remind your students to keep spinners and all other toys at at home. Thank you for your help.
All library books are due the week of May 22 - 26. Outstanding loss and damage notices will be mailed home by June 2nd to those students who have not returned their library books by May 26th. As stated in the Annual Parent Notice, “Library book processing standards prohibit the school district from accepting donated copies of a library book that has been lost or damaged in lieu of payment.” Encourage your students to return their library books on time!
