Dear Loma Verde Families,
I am privileged to work with the Loma Verde community this 2018 - 2019 school year as your Principal. I am honored to work with a highly qualified and dedicated staff, wonderful students, supportive parents, and community members. The elementary years are critical times of intellectual and social-emotional growth and development of students. I look forward to providing students with an intellectually challenging environment that focus on critical thinking, collaboration, communication, and creativity as well as a safe school. This school year I will work with the Loma Verde parent community to make this school year successful through parent workshops, parent meetings, and multiple committees you can join to make a positive impact at Loma Verde Elementary. I am a lifelong learner and I am committed to students' success both intellectually and social-emotionally.
Mrs. Bree Watson
Estimadas Familias de la escuela Loma Verde,

Me siento honrada de trabajar con un personal altamente calificado y dedicado, estudiantes maravillosos, y todos los padres de familia y miembros de la comunidad. Los años de primaria son los momentos críticos del desarrollo emocional, intelectual y social de los estudiantes. Espero poder trabajar con todos ustedes para que este año escolar sea exitoso atravez de talleres para padres, una variedad de reuniones de padres, y múltiples comités a los que pueden unirse para hacer un impacto positivo en la escuela Loma Verde. Soy un aprendiz de por vida y yo estoy comprometida con el éxito de los estudiantes tanto intelectual como social y emocional.

We see our students as scholars who will compete, and succeed, in college and a profession. At Loma Verde, equity for all means closing the achievement gap. Students are active participants who develop independence through critical thinking in a rigorous learning environment where they will excel, compete, and succeed in a multicultural world.
Loma Verde Elementary fully embraces the Chula Vista Elementary School District goals (Literacy, Equity, Collaboration, Technology, and a Safe Environment) in all it does. We also believe that Success equals IMAGINATION - the source of all true art and science; INTELLECT - the gift that allows us to make choices; INQUIRY - the path to find the truth and the good at which all things aim. Our school community is continuously collecting and analyzing student work and data, prioritizing needs, setting goals, and making collaborative decisions. We believe in preparing our students to compete and succeed in preparation for college toward a bright future and career. For this reason, staff development is focused on the California State Standards, and the priorities addressed in the school plan have been determined by the staff, including the representatives from the Data Team, the School Site Council, English Learner Advisory Committee (ELAC), Gifted and Talented Education (GATE), community forums, through discussion of assessment of student achievement.
Our vision for success is all students excelling academically. The Loma Verde vision is based on a strong partnership with parents, school, and the community. We are committed to working together with our families for the benefit of our students' future. Information through informal surveys, the Hanover Survey, and formal academic assessment tools is gathered from students, teachers, parents, and the community to enable us to strengthen and perfect our program. We encourage and respect uniqueness and value diversity.
