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!

Ready for a Break?

It's almost time for Spring Break in Ka-Roo country! KISD's Spring Break is the week of March 16 - 20, and we're all looking forward to a little time off.

However, that doesn't mean there's nothing going on at Rancier!

Here's a quick summary of some exciting things happening:

*AVID students going to UT Explore on Saturday, March 7.

*Tennis matches March 7 against Union Grove & March 12 against Live Oak Ridge.

*Track Meets on March 10 (Girls) & March 11 (Boys) @ Ellison HS.

*KISD Middle School Theater Festival March 11 @ Shoemaker HS, with the Rancier Theater II class performing! (Play to be performed for our student body on March 13).

*Our much-anticipated Talent Show, March 12, 4 pm. ($1 admission).

Yes, indeed. This will be busy week in Ka-Roo country, and I hope you'll be a part of the action.

Get ready for a wonderful Spring Break!
