Auburn El School Site Council Interest

Calling all families that are interested in making difference at Auburn El by serving on the School Site Council. School Site Council is composed of the following:


  • 5 school personnel
  • 5 family/community members


Currently, we have one community member and need 4 family members in order to have a balanced council. In addition, we cannot vote without a quorum, which means that we cannot have more school personnel than our family members.


Commitment is just the third Monday of every month from 3:30 -4:30 PM (with some movement due to holidays and vacations) and two years as a member. We focus on the following:


  • Site Plan for Student Achievement
  • Safety Plan
  • Budget


Please consider taking a vested interest in Auburn El.

With Panther Spirit,

Principal Fischetti

Behavior Expectations

Our panthers learned about behavior expectations on Friday. At Auburn El, it's important teach the expectations first since behavior is a skill. We will continue to teach these skills throughout the year.
