Kennedy Gardens Elementary School

Be Respectful - Be Responsible - Be Safe


Dear Students, Parents, and Community Members,
I am excited to be a part of this community of learners. I have been working for Calexico Unified School District for over twenty-three years.  Most of my experience has been at the secondary level.  During this first year as principal of Kennedy Gardens Elementary School, I plan to work diligently with parents and faculty to foster an atmosphere that promotes a learning community characterized by child centered instruction and decisions, academic excellence, trust, respect, community involvement, excellent communications, and recognition of both student and staff achievement. I am committed to working in collaboration with you to continue to develop and implement this shared vision.
I would like to invite you to come to one of our following monthly meetings that include: General Parent Meeting, School Site Council (SSC), and English Language Advisory Committee (ELAC) meetings and help set the direction for our learning community.  Newsletters/Calendars are sent out every month and notes will be sent home describing special events. 
Thank you for visiting our website. If you would like to discuss any of the programs offered or any school related subjects or you have ideas about what should be added to this web site please contact us either by email or call the school’s main office at (760) 768-3842.
