President’s Message


Dear PTA Members and Future PTA Members,

Welcome to the 2017-18 school year at Ranchview High School. We are part of an amazing school system and an amazing campus with great faculty, staff, students and parents. If you are a first time parent coming through high school, get ready for great times, children that grow up before your eyes and leave home before you know it, and many, many special memories that you will cherish forever.

As PTSA President, it is my hope to fulfill our mission to support parents, students, teachers and administration by improving communication and providing opportunities for parents to get involved. I encourage you and your student to join PTSA.

PTA is the ONLY organization that backs ALL children no matter their athletic, fine arts or academic abilities.

We are the state’s largest grassroots association with over 500,000 members – parents, teachers and others with a special interest in children, youth, families and schools. Our mission is to make every child’s potential a reality by engaging and empowering families and communities to advocate for all children. Our members are leaders and advocates for the children of Texas, with access to valuable programs, resources and a voice at the Texas Capitol.

With advocacy at our core, we are committed to building education and taking a comprehensive approach to community success. With back-to-school upon us, the door is reopened for conversations about what PTA stands for and how families, teachers, students and others can be involved. It’s an exciting time, and we are taking the opportunity to rally the community with a brand-new campaign.  We will make this time of year about more than new backpacks and new classrooms, rather by inspiring and inviting community members and leaders to back the future. 

Successful students are everyone’s business, and successful schools build successful communities. And we know there is no commYOUnity without YOU, so to speak – “YOU” being our members, our future members, community leaders and communities at large.

We are inviting not only families, teachers and students, but community members of all walks of life to “Back The Future” by becoming a PTA member and joining in the celebration of the start of the 2017-2018 school year.  We would love for you to join us volunteering at school, but we realize that this may not fit into everyone’s schedule.  However, we do ask that you join PTA.  When you join PTA you say I back the future!  I want you to advocate on behalf of my child, my school and my community!  By joining PTA I am stating that I also believe strong schools = strong communitiesI realize as a parent in the school that strong schools directly affect my child.  I realize that as a property owner in the community that my property value increases when families want to move in to C-FB ISD.  I realize as a business in the community more families, mean a greater potential for business. 

I look forward to another successful year.  Go Wolves!
