Dear Students, Parents, and Families,

Welcome home to Las Positas Elementary School! I am honored to serve as your principal in partnership with our students, families, staff and community to bring learning to new heights this year. The 2018-19 school year will be filled with adventure and learning as we embark on our Candidacy year of the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme (IB PYP). Our staff is committed to serving all our students and empowering all students to reach their highest potential. With our experienced and loving staff, we are preparing ALL children to be college and career ready with 21st Century Skills with Inquiry woven throughout learning. Together with families and our community, our goal is to meet and exceed educational, personal and social goals of each of our students! Together we are a community of learners!

To our Las Positas students, we welcome you home! We are all excited for the school year and are planning to create lasting memories of learning and growth. We can’t wait to hear about your summer and see how much you have grown. Our theme this year is “Passport to the World”.
