     Dear Parents,

    First, a HUGE thank you to all of our parents who attended our student-led conferences last week. The support you show your children and our school is such an important factor in your child’s success. We are able to accomplish great things with your children because we are all aligned in our efforts to create great students and more importantly, great people. Thank you for taking time out of your schedules to support your children; it is appreciated.

    Friday, March 29th is Solana Ranch’s 5th Annual Ranch on the Run fun run to raise money for our STREAM classes. All funds raised support our cutting edge STREAM Discovery Labs (STREAM Lab, Art, Technology, and supplemental PE). Every student, each week gets to participate in hands-on project-based learning projects that are aligned to the Next Generation Science Standards. In STREAM Discovery Labs students engage in engineering design, learn coding, participate in PE, use robotics, create art projects that nurture creativity and so much more!
