    Dear Parents,

    I want to take this opportunity to thank each of you one more time for making this an amazing school year! I also want to remind everyone that this Friday is the last day of school and it is also a minimum day, so students will be dismissed at 12:10 PM, except for our 6th graders who will be dismissed after promotion, which begins at 9:00 AM.

    We will once again be doing the Hawk Reading Challenge this summer to encourage reading and help students avoid the Summer Slide.  Students are encouraged to read daily (20 minutes a day/5 days a week) for a summer total of 1000 minutes.  Click here for the Summer Reading Challenge Log.

    The Solana Beach School District has put together a number of resources for a summer of fun learning this year! Click here to visit our Summer Fun Learning web page, where you will find a variety of STREAM (Science, Technology, Research, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics) activities as well as links to DreamBox Math and Overdrive (an online ebook library). Feel free to try out the various resources. It's all about challenging the brain a little bit each day with fun, yet educational activities.

    I am excited to welcome all of our families in the Fall for another dynamic and enriching year at Solana Ranch.   I hope all of you have a great summer. You are all the BEST!!

    Jerry Jones, Principal

    Summer Slide

    Every year children across the country experience what is known as the "Summer Slide." The typical child can lose anywhere from 1-3 months of academic progress every summer.

    Solana Ranch will be offering the Hawk Summer Reading Challenge this summer to encourage the daily reading, which is so important! Students are encouraged to read daily for a summer total of 1000 minutes.
