We have had a very successful start at Circle Cross Ranch. We welcomed 8 new certified staff members, 2 new lunch monitors and 2 new SPED parapros to the Cheetah Team this year. Our teachers reported a very positive parent turnout on Meet the Teacher Night and it was a really fun evening seeing the returning families this year. Mr. Johnson, our new Assistant Principal, met lots of new families this month and is having a great time getting to know our staff and students.
Our staff enjoyed a full blown celebration at our Returning Teacher Meeting where we decorated our library in Red, White and Blue and spent most of the day celebrating our outstanding student achievement results based on the Spring 2014 Aims Test. We were blown away by the remarkable 28 POINTS we gained in student growth and, above all, the jump we made in a letter grade from “C” to “A”. The celebration was joined by Dr. Fuller and Mr. Knutsen. Our staff shared tears of joy as we all put our hearts and souls on the line last year, giving 110% developing a new team, new culture and new academic focus school wide. Our hard work paid off in a BIG WAY!
