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 12:12 PM, except for our 6th graders who will be dismissed after promotion, which begins at 8:00 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.  A log can be found on our website. Also, on our website is a link for the Summer Reading Challenge where you will find a variety of STREAM (Science, Technology, Research, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics) activities as well as links to DreamBox, Compass Learning and a keyboarding program. Feel free to try out any or all of 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
