**Rangers Club's 1st FAMILY NIGHT event was a HUGE SUCCESS- held on two nights at LAUNCH! -due to the great response of nearly 500 students & family members!!!
We owe BIG THANK YOUs to our host LAUNCH! and food providers TEXAS ROADHOUSE and CHICK-FIL-A.   Our families had an excellent time and the food was fantastic.  Thank you for being wonderful partners!  Thank you parents and students for being part of our Rangers Club family!

RANGERS CLUB Summer Program 2019 -  Camp ended on Friday, August 16th.  We want to thank all of you for working with us during our emergency venue change from the Timony to the Marsh!  The Timony air conditioning (AC) broke down during the hottest week of the summer, with no end to the high temperatures in sight.  A quick AC replacement turn-around was impossible, so the one available school with full-service AC was the Marsh.  Many thanks to the Marsh administration and staff for all your help!  Again, thank you parents for understanding that this was in the best interest of the children and program.


FY20 21st CCLC After-School Program:   FY20 is year 3 of our high school 21st CCLC Program for MHS 9th - 11th graders - teacher, guidance, & administrator referrals only.  Parents of 21st CCLC students are encouraged at all times to contact our office or the program site coordinator, Juana LaRose, to provide feedback and suggestions regarding the program.

Referred students will be contacted soon.
