From the Principal – March 2018

   From the Principal

Hello Wolf Pack!

March is here and spring is right around the corner!  The spring semester we start many of the state assessments that help us determine how our students are progressing each year.  Students must successfully reach the Approaches Grade Level on each of the following End of Course Assessments before graduating from high school:

  • English 1
  • English 2
  • Algebra
  • Biology
  • US History

The first assessments for this year are English 1 and English 2 which will be on Tuesday, April 10th and on Thursday, April 12th.  The other three tests will be the week of May 7th.  Students and teachers have been working hard all year preparing for these assessments and additional tutoring is taking place during our Advisory periods and after school on Tuesdays and Thursdays.  I know our students will be prepared and will perform well.

Ranchview’s second set of Parent-Teacher conferences are set for Tuesday, March 6th from 4:30 – 7:30 pm.  Teachers will be contacting parents to set up conference times as well as will be making many phone calls that evening.  If you would like to talk to a specific teacher, feel free to contact that teacher to make an appointment or come to Ranchview during conference times and the teacher will work you into the schedule.  Also, while you are here for conferences, be sure to take a test drive in a new Ford vehicle and help us raise money for the CFB Educational Foundation and Ranchview High School.  Click here for the sign up link for drive times:

Additionally, counselors are continuing to meet with students as they select their courses for next year.  They have already met with all grade levels.  Parents, feel free to contact the counselors with any questions that you have regarding course registration for next year.  The counselors are also leading a parent information session on Tuesday, March 27th at 6:00 pm in the Library Annex on Community College Options.  This is a great session for anyone, especially Senior families, who are unsure of their plans for next year.

I’d like to congratulate all of the choir, band, and visual arts students who performed at UIL Solo and Ensemble Contests this year and VASE.  RHS has 35 students headed to the State Solo and Ensemble Competition in May!  The Orchestra, Choir, Band, and One Act Play all go to UIL Contest later in March.  We wish all groups good luck!

Don’t forget that there will be NO SCHOOL the week of March 12th – 16th for Spring Break.  I hope you have some rest and relaxation with your family and friends!

Thank you for your support of our students and of Ranchview High School!

Go Wolves!

Mrs. Sherie Skruch – Principal
