We are very proud of our staff and students, and invite you to get to know our school by viewing our website. There are many wonderful programs and opportunities for children to learn and be creative. A spirit of cooperation and progress is evident as you step onto our campus. We are all here to assist you in any way we can.
When the family and school work together toward high expectations for student achievement and conduct, students demonstrate greater success as positive, confident learners. We look forward to working together as partners in learning. 
One of our focuses this year is the implementation of California Common Core State Standards. Administrators will be sharing general information regarding Common Core Standards and  teachers will be presenting a series of grade level specific events highlighting what this curriculum looks like in the classroom and how you can best help your child at home.
Sincerely,
Mrs. Susan Bender, Principal
