Welcome to Sweetwater Springs Elementary School, Home of the Skyhawks! I am Angelo Benedetto, your new principal. I am honored and excited to be joining Sweetwater Springs Elementary as well as the La Mesa-Spring Valley family. Those of you whom I have already had the privilege of meeting have made me feel right at home.
We at Sweetwater Springs are student-centered and believe that we can guide each and every child to high levels of achievement and emotional well-being. The staff at Sweetwater Springs is preparing for an exciting 2020-2021 school year. Our work will be grounded in best practices that provide our students with a learning environment that is both safe and nurturing. We will continue our work with restorative practices and collaborating in Professional Learning Communities so that we may ensure that all of our students succeed.
At Sweetwater Springs, we are committed to:
- Providing a rigorous curriculum aligned with essential content standards.
- Setting high performance expectations for all of our students.
- Assessing students throughout their learning.
- Providing grade-level interventions when students are struggling with content.
- Collaborating with colleagues, families, and students.
We recognize that in order to achieve success, it takes a strong partnership between our school and the families of our students. We have several opportunities for parents to get involved. The following are just a few committees that involve parents and/or community members: School Site Council, English Learner Advisory Committee, and Parent Teacher Student Association. Parents are also encouraged to volunteer in the classroom. Parent involvement is vital in the success of our students.
This year, you can expect to hear from me at least once a week via email and phone message as I send out a weekly Principal Bulletin. I look forward to meeting and working with each and every one of you.
