 Notes from the Ranch

Hello Mustang Family!
 We have had a busy week here at Ranch Creek, but I do not have a lot of new information for you. Wishing you a restful 3 day weekend!
Chef Contest-
Our food service provider, Sodexo, is holding a Future Chefs culinary competition. In order to participate, students just need to fill out an entry form with a recipe to “reimagine your favorite school lunch meal”. Entry forms can be found in the front office and the cafeteria.
IB Information Night-
All of the district IB schools will be coming together the evening of January 22nd to provide information regarding each of the IB Programmes, the PYP, MYP, DP, and CP. If you would like to hear about each of these programs, learn about the continuation process, or if you have friends who are interested in an IB education for their children, please join us!
Winter Coat Drive-
January 24th will be the last day to drop off gently used coats for the Winter Coat Drive.
WIDA ACCESS testing-
Students on English Language Learning Plans will be participating in WIDA ACCESS testing on January 28th and 29th.
Trait of the Week-
This week’s trait was thinker. Thinkers exercise initiative in applying thinking skills critically and creatively to recognize and approach complex problems. Next week’s trait is caring. Caring students show empathy, compassion and respect towards the needs and feelings of others. They have a personal commitment to service and act to make a positive difference to the lives of others and to the environment.
From the PTA-
•    Pastries with Parents, Thursday, January 23 from 7:15-8:15 in the RCE Common Room! We had a great response to this event, and registration is FULL. We look forward to seeing all those who registered on Thursday morning!

If your family has recently joined our RCE family, or if you missed the chance to add yourself to the All-School Directory in the fall, the Directory is open again!  All those who add their information to the Directory will receive an electronic copy of it.
