Principal's Den

Dear Cloverdale Families,


I hope you are all well and staying safe. I want you all to know that I am very proud of all of our students and their families and caretakers for all of your continued effort and commitment to education. Thank you for having our lions


At Cloverdale we strive to be Leaders by Example. As I mention to our students during announcements, this means that we always try to do the right thing even when no one is looking.


As part of our school's Positive Behavioral Interventions and Support (PBIS), we also learn to ROAR. This is a matrix that exemplifies our core values of being Respectful, Organized, Accountable, and Responsible.


We also know that a FAIL is only a First Attempt in Learning and that we learn best from our mistakes. When someone makes a mistake we say "It's Cool!"




Sincerely,


Genaro García

Principal
