Dear Parents, Students, & Community Members,

Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year!  I am excited to begin my fifth year at San Ardo Elementary.  We are fortunate to be continuing with a new rigor and focus on academics and an education encompassing the whole child.  I am proud of the increases in student achievement made last year as a team effort between the teachers, staff, parents and community.  San Ardo Elementary had the third largest growth in Monterey County last year in terms of English Language Arts and Mathematics.  We are far from finished and continue to work towards closing the achievement gap that exists between students who are English Language Learners and those who are not.     

An education in which addresses the whole child not only focuses on academics, it includes the fine arts, physical education, and extended activities.  We are fortunate to be able to offer music and art through a partnership with Sol Treasures.  Through our community partnerships with Chevron and AERA Energy we are able support and build robust programs such as Project Lead the Way and send students on field trips to California Polytechnic University, San Luis Obispo and the Pro Am at Pebble Beach.   

As I reflect over the past five years I have been in San Ardo, it gives me substantial  satisfaction to be a part of something greater.  Students are excited about their learning and we are thrilled to continue growing and provide additional opportunities!
