Click Here to Enroll in Ventana Ranch K3+ Summer 2018

 

Dear Parents of Students who will be in Kindergarten through 3rd Grade in SY 2018-2019

 

Would your child benefit from a “jump start” to his/her school year?  We are happy to announce that students at Ventana Ranch are able to receive a five week “jump start” in the areas of reading, written language and math.  This program is open to all students PreK-2nd grade, and is NOT a remedial program.  Students who participate in the K3 Summer Academy will begin their school year with a hands-on curriculum, STEM activities, and on-site reading and math interventionist to support struggling learners as well as our higher/advanced students.  The goal of K3 Summer Academy is to provide strategies and intervention time so that students remain engaged and involved during the summer.

 

The program will run: June 20-July 25, 2018.  We will be off for the 4th of July holiday on Wednesday, July 4 ONLY! Attendance is important, so please plan vacations accordingly.

In order to reserve a spot for your child in this wonderful learning opportunity, we are requesting that you complete this online form or fill out the paper copy will be coming home with your child.  These can be returned to your child's teacher at any time.   Your child’s teacher can provide you with your child’s current academic progress in reading, written language and math as well as some of the benefits of the “jump start” program during parent/teacher conferences. 

 

Please do not hesitate to speak with me should you have any questions. We look forward to giving your child the necessary skills and opportunities that he/she will need to succeed in the next academic school year.  

 

Sincerely, 

 

Vernadette Chavez

Principal

The best time to see the peak of the eclipse will be 11:45 am.  For this event, Ventana Ranch ES will use the following plan: 

 

  • Ventana Ranch will follow a regular schedule.  However, all outdoor lessons/recesses will be conducted indoors beginning at 10:10 a.m.until 1:15 p.m.
  • Students in grades 4-5 will be permitted to participate in outdoor eclipse lessons and will use proper safety procedures.
  • Any students (grades 4-5) who wish to participate in outdoor viewing activities must have permission slips, there will be alternate viewing options for students without permission slips.
  • Alternate viewing activities will be provided to teachers (grades PK-5) to use at their discretion.

Albuquerque Public Schools has made it easier for families to apply for free and reduced-price meals with an online process in English or Spanish that walks them through the process.

Fill out online application

 

Only one application is needed per family, even when children attend different APS schools. Families need to fill out the application every year, even if they qualified in previous years.  While the application can be filled out anytime, families are encouraged to complete it before school starts. It's also available through the APS breakfast and lunch menu mobile app, YumYummi, which you can download from Google Play or iTunes App Store.

We've made some changes to bus stop locations, numbers and arrival/drop off times. Our goal is to get students to school a little earlier so they have time to eat breakfast. 

To find out what bus your child should ride, click here and type in your address or visit MyBusStop.aps.edu.

 

APS provides bus transportation to:

  • Elementary School students who live more than 1 mile from their school of residence
  • APS DOES NOT provide school bus transportation to transfer students.
  • Please Note: If your student is in kindergarten, the parent must be present at the bus stop in the afternoon; otherwise, the bus driver will take the student back to their school.

Teacher Appreciation Week May 1st-May 5.

 

Love on those teachers!  Here are some ideas for the week.

 

Monday-Supply them with your love.  Give them some extra sharpies, dry-erase markers, post-it notes, you name it!  Or even their favorite beverage.

 

Tuesday-Display of Affection.  Tell them a special Thank you, give a hug, or an extra high-five.

 

Wednesday- Thank the EA's, music teacher, librarian, Cafeteria workers, our janitors, office staff, and other support staff with a special treat!

 

Thursday- Make their day bright with flowers or a homemade card.  Also, PTA will be providing lunch for the staff.  If you would like to bring a dessert, please let us know.

 

Friday-Special gift to show how much you love those teachers!  Gift cards are a great suggestion!

This Pokemon Deck Guide was created by one of our 5th Grade students, Ezekiel Henderson, as part of his Genius Hour project in Mrs. Sager's Class.  

 

According to Mrs. Sager, "Genius hour is a movement that allows students to explore their own passions and encourages creativity in the classroom. It provides students a choice in what they learn during a set period of time during school. 

 

I set aside 1 hour per week for students to explore their passions. This is a year-long project that they must come up with a question that involves deep research and inquiry. They then must decide why this information is important, who is their audience, and how they will share this information. Through discovery they oftentimes learn that a really good question only leads to further questions. Their projects require them to not only research online and books, but to interview experts in the field they are exploring. They are encouraged to think beyond our classroom/school when sharing their projects."

 

Zeke chose to share his project on our Ventana Ranch News Feed in order to help share this information with as many students as possible.  

 

For more information on Genius Hour, please visit, http://www.geniushour.com/ or talk to any of the students in Mrs. Sager's 5th Grade class!
