Introducing Ivey's Butterfly Garden

Ivey Ranch is proud to introduce our very own Monarch Butterfly Garden! Previously known as the "Principal's Garden", the Monarch Butterfly Garden actually serves as a way-station or a conservation habitat for these butterflies.

The monarch butterfly population is rapidly decreasing due to the loss of their precious habitat, the milkweed plant. Ivey Ranch has teamed up in a partnership with Monarch Watch to aid in the preservation of these beautiful creatures. Be sure to check out our garden where you're sure to see the monarch butterfly in all four stages of life as well as an array of plants and flowers including the milk weed plant.

For more information on how to help with the conservation efforts of the monarch butterfly please visit www.monarchwatch.org 

Congratulations Ivey Ranch

We are extremely honored to be chosen by the state of California as a California Distinguished School!  As you know, we worked very hard in the last few years to accomplish this goal.  We could not have done this without the work of our

entire Ivey Ranch family.

thCAEVUUMA.jpgThis is the third time, Ivey Ranch Elementary School has been named a California Distinguished School.  Ivey is one of 35 schools countywide, and one of only 424 statewide to receive the honor for 2014.  State Superintendent Tom Torlakson made the announcement April 30th.   Ivey Ranch received its first honor in 2000, and again in 2006.  Schools are selected for their “strong commitment and innovative approaches to improving student academic achievement.”

Since the program began in 1985, 14 OUSD schools have garnered 27 Distinguished School Awards.
