Welcome to La Presa Elementary School
At La Presa Elementary School, together with families and our community, we strive to inspire students to become outstanding individuals who will have a positive effect on the world. We are fortunate to have a talented and caring staff that seeks to know all our students by name and need. We are dedicated to every child learning every day in a safe and positive school environment.
La Presa Elementary provides a rigorous and relevant curriculum to ensure that all students are successful and meet our high expectations. We encourage active student participation, hands-on learning, technology use and application, and individual accountability for learning. Teachers work together in Professional Learning Communities to clearly identify essential learning targets, analyze and systematically monitor student achievement, and provide comprehensive intervention programs to ensure that all students are successful.
To achieve student success, we need a strong partnership with parents and the community. We cannot be successful without you! We offer many opportunities for parent and community involvement. This would include the joining our wonderful PTA, volunteering for classroom assistance, or serving on the School Site Council (SSC) or English Language Advisory Council (ELAC). I invite you to stay connected through our website, classroom "Friday Folders", and the information line. The wonderful staff at LPE and I are dedicated to working with you as partners to ensure your child’s success.
La Presa Elementary is a school united by respect and friendship. Students come first in all that we do and we strive to make sure our students are equipped to succeed and achieve. I look forward to working with you to provide the best educational experience possible for your students. My door is always open and I invite you to email, call, or stop by at any time: firstname.lastname@example.org, 619-668-5790, ext. 4599.
