Message from Mrs. Denny

December 11, 2020



Dear Tustin Ranch Families,


Thank you all for a wonderful week of holiday dress-up! It has been so much fun seeing all students participate both virtually and in-person! We had a great turn out for this month's Coffee with the Principal. Our school counselor Ms. Pauw spoke about coping strategies for students and how to lower anxiety. Here is the link to her newsletter: She also shared a great video which I have added below.


Today the Grinch stopped by because we have been having so much holiday fun around here! Thank you, Rosales family. Have a wonderful weekend. Enjoy the family time over the holidays, our children grow up so fast and before you know it they are off to college. Cherish every single moment.

Be well,

Mrs. Denny

A Message From our PTA

Tustin Ranch PTA has a website:

Paws for a Cause

Click here to join:

This year marks the 7th anniversary for Paws for the Cause and our goal is to raise $20,000. ...What is PAWS for a Cause? Paws for a cause is TRE's annual fundraising campaign designed to raise money that goes directly back to TRE. Unlike other fundraisers, 100% of your donation goes directly to supporting our children and all donations are 100% tax deductible. Every contribution helps to maintain and cover the costs for enrichment programs, the safety of our children due to the Covid-19 epidemic, school activities and experiences. Tustin Ranch Elementary PTA is a 501(c)(3)non-profit:tax i.d. #33-0661492..


Don't my tax dollars pay for these programs? Unfortunately, California does not pay for these enrichment programs, with funding cuts California only provides the basics....Why are these programs and experiences important? These programs directly benefit our children by providing a higher quality, well rounded education, while bringing safety and enjoyment to our Cool Coyotes. These programs and experiences broaden our students' scope of learning and are a big part of what makes TRE one of the best schools, recognized as a California Gold Ribbon and California Distinguished School. The social and emotional events build a stronger sense of community making our school unique....Will I get a receipt? Yes, ..Does TRE accept corporate or employer matching gifts? YES, we gladly welcome matching gifts!


Please spread the word- family near or far can click below to join as well!
