Principal's Corner

Dear Loma Verde Families,

Welcome to the 2022-2023 school year!  The staff and I are excited to start a new academic year in a safe, healthy, and happy environment where all our children can receive the best education.  Based on the needs of each individual child, the knowledgeable and dedicated Loma Verde staff strives to provide the best Common Core Standards-based, dynamic instruction, while also focusing on the social, emotional and physical well-being of students.  At Loma Verde we capitalize on your child’s inquisitiveness and desire to learn.  We guide and provide your child with the knowledge and skills necessary to be a successful, productive member of society.  We look forward to serving you and providing your child with the best education possible.

This will be a rewarding year filled with learning, lifelong relationships, and the joys of success and accomplishment.  Your participation in your child’s education is vital.  The Parent Teacher Organization (PTO), School Site Council (SSC), and English Learner Advisory Committee (ELAC) and the classrooms welcome your participation.  The wonderful Loma Verde staff and I feel privileged to be a part of this school family. We thank you for your support and look forward to working with you during the 2022-2023 school year. My door is always open, and I am always available to serve you.

Sincerely your partner in education,

Mrs. Bree Watson, Principal

 

Our Mission

We see our students as scholars who will compete, and succeed, in college and a profession. At Loma Verde, equity for all means closing the achievement gap. Students are active participants who develop independence through critical thinking in a rigorous learning environment where they will excel, compete, and succeed in a multicultural world.

Loma Verde Elementary fully embraces the Chula Vista Elementary School District goals (Literacy, Equity, Collaboration, Technology, and a Safe Environment) in all it does. We also believe that Success equals IMAGINATION - the source of all true art and science; INTELLECT - the gift that allows us to make choices; INQUIRY - the path to find the truth and the good at which all things aim. Our school community is continuously collecting and analyzing student work and data, prioritizing needs, setting goals, and making collaborative decisions. We believe in preparing our students to compete and succeed in preparation for college toward a bright future and career. For this reason, staff development is focused on the California State Standards, and the priorities addressed in the school plan have been determined by the staff, including the representatives from the Data Team, the School Site Council, English Learner Advisory Committee (ELAC), Gifted and Talented Education (GATE), community forums, through discussion of assessment of student achievement.

Our Vision

Our vision for success is for all students to excel academically. The Loma Verde vision is based on a strong partnership with parents, school, and the community. We are committed to working together with our families for the benefit of our student's future. Information through informal surveys, the Hanover Survey, and formal academic assessment tools is gathered from students, teachers, parents, and the community to enable us to strengthen and perfect our program. We encourage and respect uniqueness and value diversity.
