All parents, with children in the public school system, automatically become members of the school’s Parent Advisory Council. Please feel free to join our monthly PAC meetings, which are moat often held on the third Thursday of each month. Meetings are held in the school’s library and begin at 6:30 pm.  If you are interested in becoming involved with the PAC this year, please attend a meeting to show your interest and learn more about this vital part of our school community.

The staff and students of Ranchero Elementary would like to thank the PAC for all of their contributions to help make our school the best school possible! The PAC enables the students to participate in programs such as cross country skiing and swim lessons. The PAC has provided the school with busing for field trips, new computer headphones, athletic uniforms, cross country skis, Chrome Books, Laminator and classroom resources. Successful fundraising initiatives have included: the monthly Hot Lunch program and pie/hanging basket sales, and Christmas present wrapping at Centonoka Mall.

The PAC does go above and beyond just fundraising. The PAC provided feedback on school programs, creates artwork and decorations for school events, organizes the annual back to school BBQ and provides families in need with amazing food hampers.
