Message from the Principal


February 2017

Magma Ranch Parents and Community Members,

Parents during the month of January each grade level team met during our PLC meetings to discuss your child’s academic data.  As we looked over the weekly formatives, DIBELS and benchmark scores we were able to see the academic development of each student.  Teachers will share this data with you during our Parent-Teacher Conferences; which are set for Wednesday, 2-8-17 (3:45-7:00 PM) and Thursday, 2-9-17 (2:00-7:00 PM).  We strongly encourage you attend conferences with your child’s teacher.  To help your child remain successful at school parents must maintain open communication with teachers and administration.  Parent-Teacher Conferences provide the opportunity for one-on-one discussion about your child’s academic progress.

During the month of February counselors from Florence High School and Poston Butte High School will visit with Magma 8th grade students.  They will discuss the registration process and they will schedule next year’s classes now.  Parents you may speak with a counselor from either high school at Magma Ranch on Wednesday, 2-8-17 from 8:30 AM to 9:30 AM after the presentation.

Parents last year the Florence Unified School District Board approved that all of this year’s 8th graders that live in the Magma Ranch community and south of that area will attend Florence High School.  All students north of the train tracks on Bella Vista will attend Poston Butte High School (Camino Largo, Bella Vista and Green II).  The goal of the board is to get both schools to equal out at capacity as this will allow the district to petition the state for funding for a fourth high school.  If you have any questions please contact me in my office during the school day.

A big thank you to all those students who participated in the 100th day of school at Magma Ranch on Tuesday, 1-24-17.  We had quite a few students create some great art work.  Many of these drawings are now being displayed in our front office.  Zero Hero visited and took pictures with some Kindergarten to 5th grade classes.  Students were given pencils, stickers, erasers and other items to celebrate the 100th day of school.

Parents thank you for all you do.  We will continue to work together as we strive for academic excellence at Magma Ranch.

Respectfully,  Mr. Lopez
