Principal's Message

7 months ago

Welcome back to a new school year at Potrero Elementary School.  Thank you for supporting your child's education by being involved.  Working together makes a big difference in the success of your child. 

Our commitment here at Potrero is to provide a safe, positive, intellectual learning environment that will empower students to become creative problem solvers, critical thinkers, and inspired learners. At Potrero our three rules are: Be Safe, Be Responsible, and Be Respectful. 

I will continue setting high expectations for our students in regards to academic performance within the classroom, participation in curricular activities, as well as responsible citizenship at school and in the community. 

The heart of every school begins and ends with the people who enter it everyday, from the staff, to the students and finally their families. As principal I will work to build a community where each and everyone of those people, when asked where they work or go to school, will respond with a sense of pride: Potrero Elementary School. 

Go Jr. Redhawks!

ELAC  -  English Learner Advisory Committee
What is ELAC?
ELAC is a committee consisting mainly of parents of students whose first language is not English, and of those members of the community who reside or work in the service area of the school. Other members include teachers and staff from Potrero Elementary School.
What is the purpose of ELAC?
ELAC was established for the purpose of allowing committee members to participate in the education of the students whose first language is not English, and to advise the principal and other members of the school regarding programs and services for English Learners.
How do we benefit from ELAC?
In order to receive benefits from ELAC, it is very important for parents of students in the EL program to actively participate, remain informed about school activities, and attend monthly meetings in the multi-purpose room.Parent involvement will not only support students academically, but it will also help to build self-esteem of our students and encourage students to become successful members of society.Being a member of ELAC provides parents with the opportunity to become familiar with the academic programs of the school, and allows parents to have a voice in the development of the programs that are offered by the school.

Parents can make the difference!
