President’s Message


Dear PTA Members and Future PTA Members,

November is my favorite month! I love that we focus on the blessings we have received rather than the gifts we hope to get come December. I am grateful for our country, where education is available to all, and especially for CFBISD and Ranchview High School! We have such fun teachers and the students are the best! I am so lucky and blessed to be your PTSA President this year and can’t believe how quickly the year is rolling along! Having said that, we are getting the board for next year put together. I would like to encourage you to get involved on our PTSA board. There are many positions that are only once or twice a year, or just once a month. If you are asked to serve, I hope you will really consider saying YES!! Great parent volunteers are what make our school so great! I hope this month you will take a minute out of your busy lives to really spend time with your awesome kids! They make me smile every time I see them and I love being in the school and seeing each of them. Their smiles and waves make me so happy. Thank you for supporting our PTSA programs and for giving so much to the education of our students!

I can no other answer make, but, thanks, and thanks. – William Shakespeare

And why am I so thankful? That’s easy. I am thankful for the RHS parents and volunteers that continually step forward to make sure our students are taking care of.  It started with all of the hard work for Homecoming will carry on this month with our “Teachers Are Souper” luncheon.  We ask you to join us whatever your talent or strength, the PTSA can use it to lobby for the education and well-being of every child. There is no talent that is too small. And there are no big “I’s” or little “You’s” in our PTSA. We need every one of you. If you wish to learn more about the many opportunities to get involved with your PTSA, please feel free to contact me at If you don’t have the time to volunteer we ask you to join PTSA.  Your membership is a voice, a voice for public education and a voice for your child.

A common myth is that our high school students require less personal attention than our younger students. On the contrary, studies show that our high school students still need our constant guidance as we mold them up until graduation. They still need us to sit up front at their program so they can catch us smiling proudly. And they still need us to tell them every chance we get that we expect the BEST because they are the BEST. With your help this school year, we can fulfill the vision of the PTA “making every child’s potential a reality.

Wishing the entire Wolf Nation a blessed Thanksgiving!

Yours in Service,

Diane E. Dobis

RHS PTSA President
