Welcome to Casa de Oro School!

Your child’s education, safety, and social-emotional development is my top priority!   I feel extremely fortunate to be the principal of a school with such wonderful children, a motivated and dedicated staff, and parents who work with us to create an environment that facilitates student learning through a wide variety of innovative and collaborative methods and activities.  

The high-quality instruction that takes place every day at Casa de Oro is aligned to the Common Core Standards which promote 21st Century learning skills including communication, collaboration, critical thinking, and creativity.   Together as a team we personalize learning for children based on their strengths, interests, and needs.  

Parental involvement in our school community is strongly encouraged. Parental involvement can come in many forms.  I encourage you to participate in your child’s educational experience and we will collaborate with you on ways to help your child and contribute to the positive climate of the school.   It is the support and unity of the staff, families, and community that make Casa de Oro an amazing place to learn!    Open communication is important to a unified community.  Please feel free to email me with any questions, suggestions, or comments.   I look forward to working together with you to make your child’s educational experience a positive one.
