RANCH ROUND-UP ~ August 12, 2015

Dear Highland Ranch Families,

I am very happy to welcome you to another journey in your child’s education. While our hallways and classrooms are currently quiet, it won’t be long before the sounds of fun and learning take over once again. Whether you are a new Stallion family or a returning family, the year ahead will be a rewarding experience for your child. A commitment toward good character, working with understanding, and nurturing every child are some of the many reasons why Highland Ranch Elementary is such a wonderful place for children to learn and grow.

I would like to invite all Stallion families to begin the school year, meet new friends, or reconnect with some old ones!   Please join me for our PTA Popsicle Posting Party on Tuesday, August 18th, from 4:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. (enter through the MPR).   Parents will hear a brief message from me, Shona Wigley (PTA President), and a member of our Foundation.  The doors to the cafeteria area will then open and students can get a popsicle and see who their new teacher will be, as well as who their fellow classmates are for the 2015-2016 school year. At 4:10 p.m., new families will be greeted by our Fifth Graders and receive a tour of the school to make everyone feel at home.  Kindergarten students will have their Back to School Night from 5:15 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. (Tuesday, August 18th). 

Back to School Night for students in grades first through fifth will be Thursday, August 20th.   First and second grade will be from 5:00 to 5:45, Parent Meeting in the MPR from 5:45 to 6:00, and third grade through fifth grade will be 6:00 to 6:45.  This is a special night for parents and teachers, please arrange child care.

We graciously accept and appreciate all school supply donations, and grade level lists can be found at https://www.powayusd.com/pusdhres/

Hope to see you for all the fun before school begins - and of course we're looking forward to the first day of school on Wednsday, August 19th, at 7:45 a.m.

All my best,

Cindy Venolia
