Dear Rancho Parents and Families:
With only nine weeks remaining in the school year it is a good time to recognize and celebrate the efforts of a few, out of many, of our outstanding employees and parents. These members of the school community demonstrate a relentless pursuit of excellence in the learning environment. Their significant contributions in bringing about collaboration and connectedness, engaging in a deep study of best practices, and/or securing resources to meet the unique needs of each child is exceptional.
Classified Employee of the Year
Kathy Kawabata was nominated as our Classified School Employee of the Year. She is a true asset to the school and district organization. From the day she assumed the position of School Office Assistant, Kathy has demonstrated the highest of professional qualities. She is extremely dedicated and hard-working. Her willingness to learn is exemplary. She takes on all new tasks with utmost enthusiasm and strives for perfection, even in the tiniest details of her job. Kathy plays an incredibly important part of the office team; and, is an invaluable part of the Rancho family.
Rancho Romero's 2016 2017 Shining Star
Kim Kraft, kindergarten teacher, has been nominated as the 2016 2017 Rancho Romero Shining Star.
Kim is a voice of reason in every sense of the word. Whether discussing programs and aligning resources, brainstorming solutions, collaborating with school teams or engaging with parents, Kim’s excellent interpersonal skills lead people to pause, think and work toward common outcomes.
In addition to receiving the Shining Star Kim is on her way to receiving certification as an Integrated Learning Program Specialist. Required coursework for the certification focuses on using tools and strategies that provoke new thinking about the role of arts and education.
Kim invests in each child within the classroom, with her grade level team and across the school. She contributes to fostering a school culture with a high degree of resilience and professional integrity.
Rancho Romero Education Fund, PTA and School Site Council
Through the focused work of our key stakeholder groups, continual efforts are at play to maintain the motivation, resiliency and energy to ensure that all students have access to high quality teaching and learning. In March the School Site Council approved a budget, aligning newly projected resources with actions and strategies for the 2017 2018 school year. These three entities read, listened, surveyed, reviewed data and discussed top priorities for students and the school. The budget and subsequent school plan lays groundwork for targeted interventions in reading and social-emotional development, along with enrichments in the arts, technology and classroom supports.
Thank you to all for your daily work to support each child.

Rancho Romero Vision
Rancho Romero is a community of learners joined together in a nurturing and safe environment. All staff members are committed to providing students with the tools to become productive and responsible citizens of the Twenty-first Century. It is essential that our students acquire skills in gathering, organizing, and analyzing information as well as developing skills in critical thinking and problem solving. Students will have access to modern technology and use these tools in their everyday lives. They must be able to express themselves through written and oral communication as well as the arts. Students need to be actively engaged in both mental and physical activities to keep their minds and bodies healthy and fit. Parents and community members take an active role in supporting and encouraging all members of the school population. The teachers, support staff, and parents work together to prepare students for the future with high expectations for all and a unified commitment to education.
