Principal's Message

 Dear Friends and Families of Los Ranchos,

Over the last 30+ years our school district has received additional funding due to taxes generated from Diablo Nuclear Power Plant. Our funding will be heavily impacted with the closer. Dr. Prater, district administrators and our school board have been keenly focused on preparing and advocating for our district ever since PG&E made the announcement. Dr. Prater will be presenting the most relevant and updated information about Diablo's closure and the resulting impact on our district. The meeting will be on Tuesday, February 13 at 7:00 p.m. We hope to see you there. We will be providing childcare.

On that same night we will host a Literacy Night for parents. Reading is one of the most important academic areas.  Strong reading skills impact Math, Science, Writing, and Social Studies in powerful ways. You will learn specific strategies to support your child's reading life and we will share information about the state testing that all 3rd - 6th graders participate in. Literacy Night will be  on the same night as Dr. Prater's presentation. Literacy Night will be from 6 - 7:00 p.m. on February 13th. Come learn about reading and the district's future. Both have an impact on your child(ren).

Have a great weekend.


Marlie Schmidt
