The Cure Looks Like You!
Every 4 minutes someone is diagnosed with a blood cancer and may need a marrow transplant. Most do not have a matching donor in their family. Our family of RRPS nurse’s would like to help change that. On October 30th  at Rio Rancho High School in conjunction with the RRHS/CHS volleyball teams we will be holding a “Be The Match” registry drive. It takes just a simple mouth swab and paperwork to start the lifesaving process. Doors open at 3:30. Come join and become a possible donor to save a life.

PDSE's Mrs. Mayberry named Recycler of the Year for the State of New Mexico!
Anna Mayberry, selected as Recycler of the Year, is an Educational Assistant at Puesta del Sol Elementary in the Rio Rancho School District and has been instrumental in the school’s cafeteria pilot food waste recovery program. With the pilot’s success, the program will be replicated in other Rio Rancho School District elementary schools. Ms. Mayberry organized all the educational assistants who work in the cafeteria to train students at each grade level to separate out food waste at each of the six lunch periods. With more schools coming on to the program, the landfill diversion will be massive – Rio Rancho Public Schools is the City’s single largest contributor of food discards to the local landfill for the days it is in session. Mayberry partnered with a local non-profit, Galloping Grace Youth Ranch, to arrange for the pick up of food discards every school day, which were then either composted or fed to chickens. In a four-month period, more than 10,000 pounds of cafeteria food waste was diverted from the local landfill. Most of this material was composted at the ranch, but a portion of the scraps were fed to chickens; once the chickens are mature enough to lay eggs, the eggs will be donated to a local food pantry. 


 

Mission: Rio Rancho Public Schools is dedicated to graduating each student with an educational foundation for success as a responsible, ethical contributor to society.
