Dear Students and Parents,
Welcome to the 2013/2014 school year! It is with excitement and enthusiasm that I am able to introduce myself as the new principal of Gale Ranch Middle School. During the past five years, Gale Ranch has established itself as abundant in both academic excellence and cultural diversity. This can only be accomplished by a collegial partnership with both staff and parents and it is my honor to build upon this foundation and provide the best possible educational program for our students.
In a very short period of time, I have met so many wonderful people associated with Gale Ranch - staff, students and parents! It is clear that this is an amazing community and I am proud to be a Gryphon!
As we embark on transitioning to Common Core State Standards, it will be important for parents to understand how these changes will positively impact your student(s). Though the requirements of Common Core are not officially law until 2014-15, I am impressed that SRVUSD has taken such a proactive approach and has begun the implementation process. Please visit the SRVUSD Common Core State Standards link just to the left of my message. There you will find a plethora of information including links for students and parents.
The success of our students begins with the strong relationship between school and home. With that being said, I truly look forward to meeting each Gale Ranch family and providing the best learning environment for your student(s). As principal, my door is always open. I rely on your feedback and suggestions to make Gale Ranch Middle School the best it can be!
Here’s to an outstanding year!
Principal, Gale Ranch Middle School
