Rancho Vista Wins PTA Spotlight Award

Congratulations to Rancho Vista Elementary School and their PTA Unit for winning a 2017 California State PTA Spotlight Award.
WIth the help of of teacher Sasha Ritcheske, an application was submitted in early 2017 (view application below). The focus of the application was to highlight the expansion of the Special Day Class (SDC) Program by adding additional classes, which created a continuum, allowing the classes to be broken down by grade levels. This offered a K/1 class, a 2nd/3rd grade class and a 4th/5th grade class.
The Rancho Vista PTA is one of only 7 PTA Units in the State of California, to be recognized this year. Honorees will receive this award at the California State PTA Convention in San Jose the weekend of April 28-30th.  In addition to the award, recipients will also but also be able to present their Spotlight Program, at the convention.  Rancho Vista  has the opportunity to lead the way in creating on many levels, a sustainable environment for all families and students through education, support and acceptance.
