Principal's Message

Principal's message: 
I am honored to be serving as the principal for Valley Ranch Elementary. I have lived in the East Montgomery County area all of my life, and it is definitely an exciting time to be a part of New Caney. The new developments and expansions are bringing businesses and new residents to our area. I am excited about the new growth and meeting future VRE Wranglers. 
New Caney ISD is offering many opportunities to help your child be successful. Every student in grades 3-5 will have a Chromebook issued to them to be used at school. Students in grades PK-2 will utilize tablets and grade level Chromebooks. I also invite you to become aware of our dual language program and the various clubs that are open to students at Valley Ranch. 
Valley Ranch will continue to use TAP to improve instruction and student achievement. Peace Builders and CHAMPS will also continue as we constantly seek the goal of creating a safe, positive learning environment.
I am looking forward to meeting you and getting to know your children. I welcome an opportunity to schedule a time for us to sit down and talk about your student. 
It's a great day to be a Wrangler! 
Carrie Garza
