Principal's Message


Welcome to Santa Fe Elementary!

Here at Santa Fe our mission is to provide an array of opportunities and experiences that will produce confident and successful scholars. You will discover that our entire staff is committed to providing a safe and nurturing environment that challenges our scholars to do their best and grow.

Our Dual Language Program is a challenging academic program, which offers students the exciting opportunity of being bilingual and bi-literate and becoming academically successful in both English and Spanish. Students in the program are provided with a rigorous standards based curriculum that is focused on bilingual and bi-literate academic achievement. 

In addition to all students being equipped with the 21st century skills needed to be college and career ready, we believe it is equally important to practice good character and be model citizens. Therefore, we will continue practicing STAR behavior (Be Safe, Be Thoughtful, Be Accountable, Be Respectful). Finally, Santa Fe scholars understand that through their growth mindset, their abilities will be developed and enhanced through effort, perseverance, and hard work. 

I welcome and look forward to working with all of you this year, as we make our students' educational journey our highest priority!

Thank you.

GOOO Patriots!
