A message from the Principal

Dear Junipero Serra Families,


I would like to welcome you to Junipero Serra Elementary School.  I’m honored to serve as your principal and look forward to meeting all students and families. 

Our staff is ready to welcome and teach your children as they prepare for an exciting year full of learning and fun.  There will be many classroom and school events throughout the year and I encourage you to become an active partner in your child’s education by volunteering your expertise and time.  Parent participation makes a difference!

Please refer to the school calendar in the First Day Packet so you can plan vacations during our school breaks and avoid unexcused absences.  Please also refer to the bell schedule for our school hours.  Regular attendance and arriving at school on time is key to academic success.

Also included in the First Day Packet is a copy of Serra’s Behavior Expectations.  Please take some time to review these with your child.  The staff and I will also review these expectations with students at school.

Please contact myself or the Serra staff throughout the year if you have any questions or concerns.  Our goal is for your child to have a successful school year and we are dedicated to working together to assist you and your child.
