Welcome to the Vineyard Ranch Elementary PTA Website!
PTA Life Member Award Recipients
The PTA handed out Life Member Awards in December to Vineyard Ranch mom Mika Guiragossian and her mother, Vineyard Ranch grandmother Jean Brown. These two women are always on our campus, ready to take on any project, help with reading groups and parties, work in the copy room or work room, or any other place where their help is needed. Our campus and PTA would not run without the help of great volunteers like these two women. Congratulations to them both on a well-deserved recognition!

Recycle with us at the Ranch.
Did you know that old/broken cell phones, iPods, MP3 players, ink cartridges are recyclable? How about empty glue sticks and Capri juice pouches? YES, all recyclable!
LEARN HOW HERE
PTA has partnered with TerraCycle to start a number of Recycling Programs at our school.
From now on, instead of tossing items into the trash, bring them to school to earn Terracycle Points for our school. TerraCycle points are redeemable for up-cycled products, charitable gifts or payment to our school. Think of it as Win-Win situation.
The items collected will be sent to TerraCycle, an international upcycling and recycling company that collects difficult-to-recycle packaging and products and re-purposes the material into affordable, innovative products, according to terracycle.com. Our program helps earn money for our school while keeping unnecessary amounts of trash out of our landfills.
