Dear Rooney Ranch Families,

This is our last weekly update for the 2020-2021 school year! We made it through one of the hardest years in history! I cannot thank you enough for your support as we learned together to get through remote learning, in-person learning, quarantine protocols, and quarantines.

Please join me in thanking our incredible PTA for the support they provided this year. We were able to keep our Chromebook inventory up to date so all students had what they needed in order to succeed in the classroom.

I am excited to continue our Watch Dog program next year. Mr. Thad Schiele will be our “Top Dog”. Please watch for information from him at the start of the year about volunteer opportunities for the dad figures of our students.

I wish all of our 5th graders the best of luck as they head to middle school. This was an exceptional class of 5th grade students and I know they will do amazing things!

We have some changes among our staff as we look ahead to the fall. Please understand, there may be other changes over the summer. A huge congratulations to Ms. Mednick, she will be moving to Ute Meadows to teach 3rd grade, we wish her well and will miss her! Mrs. Hughes, our learning specialist is heading to a new adventure in Utah, we wish her well. Ms. Williams will be taking a leave of absence for the 2021-2022 school year, we will miss her. Since our K-3 remote teachers will be looping with many of their students, we have some internal moves. Mrs. Lee will join our kindergarten team. Mrs. Fox and Mrs. Taylor will join 1st grade. Ms. Swaim and Mrs. Felten will join 2nd grade. Our 3rd grade team will welcome back Mrs. Metskas and Mrs. Kendall. Ms. Amato will join our 4th grade team. We are thrilled to have all of our teachers back in the building!
