I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself.
My name is Manuel T. Cabral, Jr. I am proud to serve as the Principal of
the Walter E. Ranger Elementary School.
I am most impressed with
the positive atmosphere that one encounters upon entering the school. It
is quite obvious that all the positive things I have heard and read
about Ranger Elementary School are true. I look forward to meeting all
the members of the school community as time goes on. Please stop by the
office and say hello.
My main goal is to insure the continuation
of the wonderful programs and policies that are in place. I ask for your
continued assistance in this process as parental involvement and
communication is crucial for the success of our school. Feel free to
contact the school at any time with questions or concerns regarding our
students. Also, consider participating in our PTO and becoming a member
of our School Council. Your input is always most welcome. Please be
assured that my door is always open and no question or concern about the
education of our students is trivial!
Our school's mission
statement addresses the importance of staff, parents, and students
developing a partnership in education. I feel that we are doing well in
our quest of accomplishing this goal. Parental cooperation and
participation is vital for the continued success of our school. It is my
hope that the Ranger School Parents and Community continue their
tremendous support in aiding us in the day-to-day operation of the
school. You are very important in your child’s education and only with
your help will we continue to be successful.
serve in various capacities during our school day. We have classroom
volunteers who aide in instruction. We have library volunteers who
enable us to get books in the hands of our students. We have people
making copies to be used in class and home assignment. We also have
people assisting in the various events sponsored and provided by our
PTO. Thankfully, the list is endless. The input of these volunteers is
greatly appreciated and plays a major role in our school’s success.
parents have remarked that they wish they could be more active at the
school. However, their schedules do not permit this type of
participation. We understand this and offer the following as ways of
being involved when your child arrives home:
- Being positive about the value of school
- Showing concern about your child’ daily work
- Reading to them and/or having them read to you
- Reviewing the papers they bring home, recognizing the positive
- Providing a place and time for your child to do homework
- Keeping in communication with your child’s teacher(s)
