Dear Parent(s) and Guardian(s):
Greetings and welcome to La Pluma Elementary School! Our school is a safe, warm, and nurturing educational institution where students are excited about learning. At La Pluma we are devoted to providing a well-rounded educational program where “children first” is our mission. We will continue our focus on excellence and providing educational programs that promote student achievement. We are unique in that our parents and community are committed to partnering with our school to place education and volunteerism a priority. With the partnership and ongoing support of the parents and community, our team of teachers and staff are dedicated to providing a solid educational foundation for our students and preparing them to become productive citizens in a vastly changing society.
I am very honored and excited to serve as the principal at La Pluma. I am very privileged to be part of the Panther family and to be part of a community where parents, teachers, and the community actively support one another and strive to build positive relationships that ultimately support academic, social, and emotional growth of our students. I look forward to an exciting year of learning and growing with our students, as well as working with our dedicated staff and you, our parents and community members, to provide the best educational program for our students.
At La Pluma, our students will become well-rounded and prepared as they promote into the middle and high school level. We provide several elective classes throughout the day. With the support of our amazing P.T.A. as well as our District, we will be providing the opportunity for our students to experience music, art, choir, and a team-up model for Play Works. We are proud to begin our first year with the AVID program, promoting and preparing students for college and career readiness. In addition, we will continue to implement the school-wide Positive Behavior Support System, which promotes good behavior and positive choices.
We will be focusing on our district-wide initiatives:
Our team of teachers, staff, parent volunteers, and I are ready, willing and dedicated to continue to inspire, to challenge, and to have a positive impact on all of our students. Our commitment is to provide a safe and intellectually challenging learning environment that will empower students to become innovative thinkers, creative problem solvers, communicators, collaborators, technologically proficient and inspired learners prepared to thrive in the twenty-first century. We are looking forward to working with all of you to provide a positive, successful and memorable educational experience for each and every one of our students.
