San Antonio Elementary School Principal
Message from the Principal...
I am so happy to be a part of San Antonio School. I join a wonderful staff of teachers and support personnel who are dedicated to serving the needs of our students. The strong rapport among teachers, students and staff is evident throughout the campus and makes for a rich learning environment.
Parents, please check our school schedule. Just click on "Daily Schedule/Transportation" at left to find a detailed bell schedule. In a nutshell, grades 1-6 will be dismissed at 2:10 p.m. each week day except for Wednesday. On Wednesday all students will be dismissed at 12:05 p.m. The school lunch program will continue to be available every day of the week.
Our weekly assembly, one of San Antonio's special traditions, will again be held on Fridays in our lovely amphitheater. We feel it is important to share the flag salute, a patriotic song, and updates on events and PTO activities with all students. We also utilize this time to recognize a student from each classroom for their achievements, exemplary behavior or special talents. In addition, our Chair of Distinction is reserved for student whose outstanding behavior exemplifies the characteristics we promote, especially kindness and friendship. The view from the amphitheater is especially beautiful, encompassing the surrounding orange groves and the local Topa Topa mountains - parents, we hope you can join us for this weekly event!
We are very proud of our library/lab facility, which has 32 computer stations, over 5000 books for our K-6 students to choose from, and functions as an important resource center for research projects.
We are pleased with the results of standardized testing at our site. Results for our school (and others in the state) can be found on the California Department of Education website: www.cde.ca.gov/. Our current API score, based on Spring 2011 testing, is 845. Individual scores for student achievement based on Spring 2011 have already been mailed to parents.
I invite you to visit our campus by making an appointment through our office at (805) 640-4373. We would love to take your on a tour of the school and answer any questions you may have on enrollment, curriculum or programs.
