Principal's Message

Dear Potrero Elementary Dual Language Academy Families,

I am excited to share with you the inspiring vision that will guide us on our journey at
Potrero Elementary Dual Language Academy. As we embark on this academic year, it is
my pleasure to articulate our measurable vision, which is designed to cultivate a
dynamic and inclusive learning community.

Potrero Elementary's measurable vision focuses on cultivating a dynamic and inclusive
learning community with the primary objective of ensuring that 100% of students,
representing diverse backgrounds, leave 6th grade as bilingual students who excel
academically, emotionally, and socially. Our Key Pillars include Bilingualism/Biliteracy,
High Academic Achievement, and Sociocultural Competence.

The inspiration behind our Key Pillars and Vision is to propel toward a measurable
future where well-rounded individuals positively impact our interconnected world. We
believe that by instilling bilingualism, fostering academic excellence, and prioritizing
social-emotional growth, our students will not only meet but exceed the challenges of
the global economy.

Our realistic challenge is to elevate the educational experience, preparing students for
success in the global economy. By fostering bilingualism, achieving high academic
standards, and enhancing sociocultural competence, we aim to provide our students
with the tools they need to thrive in an interconnected world.

Together, as a community of learners, educators, and families, we will work
collaboratively to make this vision a reality. I am confident that with your support,
dedication, and enthusiasm, we can create an educational environment that prepares
our students for success in all aspects of life.

Thank you for being a part of the Potrero Elementary Dual Language Academy family.
Here's to a year filled with growth, achievement, and the pursuit of excellence.
