Principal’s Message
Dear Friends and Families of Los Ranchos,
Today was a day of celebration! In addition to recognizing mathematicians and  great citizens we celebrated our amazing Walk-a-thon success.  The numbers are impressive. 1,707 miles counted (6,827 laps) and $72,000.00 were raised! 40 medals were awarded to students for their exceptional efforts on the field in laps run and off the field in fundraising. But the numbers only tell part of the story.
We also celebrated acts of kindness and sportsmanship. The grit and elation of the day are beautifully documented in a video (coming your way soon) thanks to Los Ranchos parent Wolfgang Kaml.  

We owe a huge debt of gratitude to Stacey White. She was the mastermind behind the event, thoughtfully planning every detail, right down to a beautiful celebration. We will send out a letter next week highlighting more specifics about the generous donations made to our school and a link to the inspiring video. What a great way to wrap up 2017!

We just wrapped up our Holiday Family Adoption this last week. Thank you for your generosity. Dozens of families are going to enjoy brighter holidays thanks to you. A special thanks to Mrs. Greer for organizing this event for Los Ranchos.

Have a great weekend!
Marlie Schmidt

Attention Parents
Dear Parents,
We want to give you all a quick head’s up. There has been a recent report of a purse being stolen out of a car during TK pick-up time (12:20ish). The Sheriff’s Office was notified by the parent. We have heard that a few other similar incidents have occurred recently at other schools and daycares around town. Please remember to lock your car doors when you leave it unattended in our school parking lot. Please notify the school office if you see anything suspicious in the parking lot. The better we get to know each other, the stronger we are as a community.

Thank you
