I am happy and honored to introduce you to the new principal here at Rancier Middle School: Mr. David Manley.

Mr. Manley currently serves as Assistant Principal at Ellison High School. (Yes, the same school where I'm going to be the new principal!)

Welcome aboard, Mr. Manley!

Welcome Back, Early Out, & Welcome New Friends!


It's great to see everyone back safe & sound from a restful Spring Break. We had a nice, quiet day today as everyone got back into the flow of school.

Remember that Thursday, March 26, is an Early Out! Students will be dismissed at 1:35 pm.

New Friends:

The middle school boundaries are being changed for next school year, and several students from Eastern Hills Middle School and Nolanville Elementary School will be moving to Rancier Middle School. Let me take this opportunity to welcome these new students to the Rancier family.

We have planned a special event to get acquainted with our new students:

Thursday, March 26, from 5:30 - 7:30, we will hold a special Open House, just for students and parents from Eastern Hills and Nolanville. These students and parents will have the opportunity to tour the campus and meet our teachers.

Welcome aboard!
