Principal's Message

  • Welcome to Patriot Elementary “Home of the Eagles!”  As I am new to the Rosedale Elementary School District, I write this message with enthusiasm and excitement for the year to come. It is both a privilege and honor to serve the Rosedale community as the Principal of Patriot Elementary.  The entire school staff is committed and motivated to maximizing your child’s learning potential.  This school year will bring many new challenges and opportunities for you and your children.  With your support, your students will continue to meet the challenge of achieving continuous academic improvement.

    Here at Patriot Elementary, we believe that all children can learn.  Our teachers are dedicated to teaching and ensuring that all students have the best learning opportunities to meet grade level standards with optimism and success.  Our goal is to meet the learning needs of every student, who comes through our door, and to provide them with the most current research-based educational practices that are available.  We follow a rigorous state-adopted curriculum and implement cutting-edge educational practices so that our students can meet and exceed the demanding California Common Core State Standards.  The Patriot Elementary staff has and will continue to receive extensive training and professional development which enables them to better serve the educational and social/emotional needs of our students.  Our teaching staff is highly motivated and dedicated to passing their knowledge onto your children. 

    Our students are our most valuable resource and they are the reason why we are here.  We want our students to not only excel academically, but also learn about respect for others, ethical values, social skills and citizenship.  As your new principal I consider these attributes to be important components for our students to master.  We continually strive to create an environment where students feel safe, comfortable and respected. 

    As principal, I will continue to provide support and instructional leadership, for our entire staff, by creating and maintaining a clear focus on student achievement and character development.  I believe that schools should not reflect what society is, but rather what society should be. 

    Once again, I welcome you to Patriot Elementary!  If you should like more information about our wonderful school please feel free to call us, or better yet, come by for a visit.
