Message From the Principal

Dear Circle Cross Ranch Families,

 I want to welcome all our Circle Cross Ranch K-8 families for the 2017-2018 school year!  We are very excited to begin the new year and jump right into all it has in store.  We would like to introduce you to our “new” admin team.  Last year I was the Assistant Principal of Circle Cross Ranch, and have moved to the Principal this year.  I could not be more excited to continue the wonderful legacy we have begun here.  Mrs. Phyllis Bellemare, formerly the Dean of students, is now the Assistant Principal.  Noel Nafziger has been with our district for 8 years, and now we are lucky enough to have him as our Dean.  We are very excited about this new team, and look forward to keeping much of the same mixed with some new!

Listed below are some important beginning of the year dates and times.

 Wednesday, July 19th

Kindergarten and First grade students will have the opportunity to Meet their Teachers from 5:00-6:15.

    Kinder Orientation will be held in the cafeteria.  Please look for signs indicating times for Meeting the Teacher and coming to Orientation.  Times will be arranged by last names.

 Thursday, July 20th

Meet the Teacher Night for all 2-8th grade students will be from 6:00-7:00.

    PTO will have pizza available for purchase in the cafeteria starting at 5:15.  Please join us in getting to know your school and families.

    There will be a 5th Grade Science Camp parent meeting in the library starting at 5:15.  If you thinking your 5th grade student might attend, it is very important you be at this meeting to get the necessary information in a timely manner.  

    If you have a student athlete that plans to play any sport for the 2017-18 school year, please plan on attending the parent meeting in the gym from 7:00-7:30.   Wrestling is available to students 4th and up. For all other sports, your student will need to be 6th grade and up.   There have been several changes to the registration process for sports and this meeting will help clarify some of these new procedures.
