1: Creating High-Performing Students, Happy Families & Excited Educators.
2: Cactus Ranch once again received an Exemplary rating from the Texas Education Agency as well as Gold Performance Acknowledgements in the areas of Reading, Writing, Math, Science and Comparable Improvement: Reading and Math----the highest of any elementary school in RRISD!
3: Cactus Ranch was named a TBEC Honor Roll School for the second year in a row---a designation that honors the top 4% of schools in the state of Texas!
4: Our Veteran’s Day Program honored over 50 veterans in attendance. We got an overwhelmingly positive response from those veterans that enjoyed the Student Council breakfast and the wonderful program.
6: PTA raised over $21,0000 for Cactus Ranch in its Fall Hassle-Free Fundraiser and donated money to cover a technology Slate in each classroom. The Slates were delivered in December and are already being used!
7: Principal Vicki Crain volunteered to be slimed by students in order to boost fund-raiser participation.
8: Cactus Ranch PTA held an “Around the World” Family Night in October and had over 17 families bring food and items from their heritage country. Over 400 people came to this first time event.
11: Cactus Ranch Hoedown was a big success this year with the highlight of watching Mrs. Peake being slimed in front of hundreds of kids!
12: Our Cactus Ranch choir performed for the school and parents a Tour Around the World. They did a beautiful job with the instruments and songs----with some of the most difficult music we had ever chosen for choir.
15: Our Fall Wellness Walk once again was a hit and brought out students and families to focus on the health benefits of exercise—as well as some friendly competition!
