Schoolwork at the Ranch

The ranchers have finished up the first half of the school year and are doing great.  Each child attends tutoring sessions Monday through Thursday where the tutoring staff is made up of volunteers and school employees.  Students can get help on their homework during sessions and spend time reading in our library.

A few of the ranchers are taking Spanish this year and are trying to master conversation skills.  Math, a large part of every child’s education, takes time and dedication to understand.  So, every day they learn a new lesson to build upon what they have already learned.

Since this generation is becoming more dependent on computers, our young people try to build on their computer skills.  Sometimes the kids can even teach their tutors a thing or two when it comes to technology!

Art projects are encouraged for every student, and this gives them a chance to show us their natural talents.
