Principal's Message

Home of the mighty LIGERS! 

I cannot believe we are in the last few days of the school year.  I have witnessed positive growth in all the students, great achievements, and successes that I am proud of and will remember when I think about this 2015-2016 school year.  For many of you and your children, summer is around the corner to enjoy fun times and learn new things!

For some, the school year is not quite over as summer school begins on Monday, June 6, 2016.  Inquire in the front office or with your child's teacher for this information.  It is important for your child to attend summer school if it is needed or recommended. 

One very important note: Please be mindful of the new online registration system being used throughout the district.  Make sure you have the necessary paperwork as well. If you need assistance, please speak with the parent liaison, Mrs. Jackie Rodriguez, or other office personnel to get you started on the right path.  

Please be sure to collect the school calendar and the campus events flyer to stay up to date with the many activities taking place. In addition, we are here to ensure you child's safety and success in school and in their future. Contact me for any assistance. 2Gether We Will!

Yours truly,
Mrs. Lupita Cortez
