Dear Veteran Hero Families and Community Members, 


It is with great pride and excitement that I introduce myself as the Principal of Veterans Elementary. I am thrilled to be your partner in education to ensure our student's success. Veterans is the home of the Heroes! Our goals are for our school to be a place where all students will be models of good character, embrace creativity, be voracious learners, and be empowered to be confident and self-aware.  We will promote a culture where all learners will be unified and encouraged to be creative, collaborative, innovative, embrace inclusion, and develop a deep desire to learn.  We are excited for all of you to be contributing members of our school community.  We strive to create a safe and welcoming learning environment where parents and staff work harmoniously to create rigorous and engaging learning opportunities for all children. During the course of the year, it is my hope that we will work together to provide Veteran’s students with the best possible opportunities in preparing them to be well-rounded, hard-working, well-prepared, and kind young adults that are ready to take on the challenges of our 21st Century society.


As we start a new school year, we are eager to see all that our Heroes are capable of and can’t wait to help them reach that potential. Research shows that all achievement is easier with the support of our families. It is our goal to increase parent participation here at Veterans. We invite you to become involved by:


  • ~Volunteering

  • ~Get involved in our School Site Council (SSC), helping us make important decisions regarding school policies and budget that impact our student's learning.

  • ~Join our English Language Advisory Council (ELAC). You will help us make important decisions about how we support our English Language learners and will learn many important strategies and skills to help your child be more successful in school.

  • ~Join our Parent Teacher Association (PTA), where you can help with the planning of school-wide events and/or support fundraising efforts.


In partnership with our wonderful Associate Principal Elizabeth Diaz-Tucker, and our amazing staff, we look forward to meeting you and sharing all the adventures and endeavors that this new school year will bring! 


In Service,
