Principal's Message

  • Me  Becky Devahl

    Welcome to the 2019-2020 school Year.  As the new principal of American Elementary, I'm excited to join a remarkable team to serve the students and families of our community.  American has a long history of academic accomplishments recently earning the California Gold Ribbon Award.  Community involvement, rigorous standards-based core curriculum, and a safe, engaging, respectful learning environment make American the special school it is.  Our school focus surrounds students using higher-order thinking skills to access the core curriculum.  This involves giving each student what they need to be successful academically, emotionally and socially.  A growth mindset is at the forefront of what we do at American.  I look forward to getting to know each of the students and their families as we venture down the road together to make a difference in the lives of our kids.  I'm proud to be a Mustang and pledge as our school motto says to do, "Whatever It Takes!"  

    Sincerely,

    Becky Devahl
