Message From The Principal

August 2021

Dear Van Deene Family,

As I start my third year here at Van Deene Elementary I have a lot to reflect on. This journey with you all including our students, parents, teachers, and staff has demonstrated to me that Van Deene Elementary is filled with resilient and amazing people! We have gone through so much together, and I am certain that this school year of 2021-2022, with everyone's support will be another successful year. My commitment has not faltered and I am very invested in this school and have set my priorities as follows

* Safety and Security

* Ongoing Communication

                                                         * Acceleration of Learning for all  Students

                                                        * Intervention and Enrichment

                                                        * Students come first no matter what!! 

I am so excited to have all of our students on campus and I thank you all for your support and understanding as we navigate this unprecedented time in education together! 

Stay safe, 

Edith Urzua-Soto~Principal
