  • Parentvue
     
    Parents can see student grades and attendance records through a system called “ParentVue.” Teachers post assignments and grades, along with daily attendance, on the system that can then be viewed by parents through a home computer or cell phone. Teachers post links to ParentVue (sometimes referred to as "Online grades") through their teacher webpages. You can also reach ParentVue through this link.

    To use ParentVue, parents need a personal code created by their student’s school. Please visit your school office for more information.

WELCOME

Content Blocks

Welcome to Power Ranch Elementary.
We’re so glad you’ve joined us! Out teachers and staff welcome your children with open arms, providing a nurturing environment and the building blocks for a solid academic foundation. Power Ranch encourages students’ exploration and learning while challenging them to grow to their full potential.
 
Power Ranch Elementary is a neighborhood school that serves approximately 700 students with over 350 parent volunteers. Majority of our students live in Power Ranch and approximately 10 percent of our student population is open enrolled and live outside of our attendance area.
 
Power Ranch’s academic strength lies in our balance and integrated curricular program. Children master and apply literacy and mathematic skills through learning that emphasizes research, problem solving, simulations and technology. The instructional program does not end with the acquisition of discrete skills, but goes on to teach the use of those skills in higher-level problem solving.
 
The social and emotional development of our children is of utmost importance to the Power Ranch community. The Power Ranch staff takes pride in creating a warm, welcoming, and safe learning environment where all children are accepted.
 
We believe success starts here and our goal is to build a solid foundation for lifetime of success. This belief is incorporated into every learning and social experience at Power Ranch.
