Principal’s Message
August 25, 2014

Greetings Explorer Families!

We are off on our seventh year journey. We have approximately 600 students in grades K through five and 120 students in our various preschool programs. I am excited to be part of this fantastic school. Your children are fortunate to be part of such a caring staff. Every day we look forward to investing in the future of all of our students. Education is the key to a successful and fulfilling life.

This summer we added two new competent and caring staff members. Lisa Rehberg is teaching second grade this year. Lisa comes to us from Willow Grove Elementary in Poway Unified. Kim Morrison is teaching fourth grade. Kim taught gifted students in the San Diego Unified School District.

Every other Friday, we conduct what we call “Friday Flag”. This is a short assembly that begins promptly at the beginning of the day on Friday. It is a time where the entire school comes together to salute our country, to honor fellow students, watch students perform songs, skits, and dances, and to talk about schoolwide issues. All parents are always welcome at these assemblies. Our first Friday Flag will take place on August 29th outside on the blacktop

I hope to see all parents at our Back to School Night on Thursday, August 28th for our first through fifth grade parents. Our first and second grade teachers will be presenting information in their classrooms beginning at 5:30 pm. Then at 6:20 pm our third through fifth grade teachers will be presenting their information in their classrooms. This is a very important evening. Thanks for making every effort to attend. Your child’s teacher is looking forward to working together on your child’s educational journey this year.
