A Message from the Principal

Greetings Students and Parents,

This week is college week. Students will participate in different activities throughout the school day that focus on going to college. Teachers will discuss where they attended college and the importance of a college education. I graduated from California State University, San Bernardino. I earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology and a Master’s Degree in Education. I also have three teaching credentials. My mother and sister also graduated from CSUSB. I have two daughters who also have college degrees. One daughter graduated from California State University, Northridge and works for a health insurance company. My other daughter graduated from University of California, Irvine and teaches second grade. If you have a college experience that you would like to share please contact your child’s teacher.
