Dear Families and Community Members,
Welcome to Valle Lindo Elementary School, the home of the Eagles! As the new principal I am excited about getting to know our community and students. I can already say that the stand out qualities of our school include Collaborative Teachers, a progressive Dual Language Immersion program, Restorative Practices, and an emerging after school Clubs program. We are building a school community of inclusion, diversity, connections, and high impact parent involvement. I am excited about the 2017-2018 school year because of some of the truly great conversations we have already started. Valle Lindo marks my 6th school as an administrator and I am committed to bringing everyone's talents, including those of parents, to bear on making our school even better. I am proud to be the principal of such a fine school.
Thank you for the opportunity to work with you in shaping the educational life of your child! This is a sacred trust, a high calling, and a true privilege. Let's do this!
Mr. Erik Latoni Garcia, DD-214, Principal
The Valle Lindo School Community believes that children come first and are at the center of every decision. We see students as natural learners who are motivated to understand their world and who seek to succeed at progressively higher levels of learning. We are committed to collaborate and ensure that each student develops a firm academic foundation, through the implementation of the California Common Core State Standards and the District's adopted curriculum. We are committed to the success of every student. A variety of research-based strategies and resources are used to address the diverse needs of our students. We monitor student progress through curriculum-aligned assessments in language arts, math, ELD and science. Teachers meet regularly to review student work, identify instructional support and align resources. Students in need of intervention are identified early through the Student Success Team process and receive the necessary support. Communication to parents is done in a timely and regular manner.
All students...All of us!
