Dear Charnock Road Elementary School Families and Friends:


Welcome to the new school year!  I hope you had a fun and relaxing summer break and are ready for the new school year.


First and foremost, I want to recognize the impressive achievement gains made during the last school year.  Based on preliminary Smarter Balanced Assessment results, Charnock Road Elementary School students achieved double-digit gains on both the English language arts and the mathematics end-of-year summative assessment!  This tremendous Charnock Road achievement is a testament to the combined efforts of our hardworking students, phenomenal staff, and you, our dedicated families and friends.  I look forward to sharing a more detailed account of the gains made by our students once the official results are released at the end of the month.


Charnock Road strives to ensure that all of our students are prepared to compete and succeed in the 21st century.  In addition to respect, responsibility, and safety, the underlying principles of Charnock Road during this school year, staff members will continue with a relentless focus on critical thinking, problem solving, communication, collaboration, and technology integration.  It is my belief that this faculty focus is one of the main reasons why we were able to achieve such outstanding student gains last school year.    It is an honor to lead such a talented group of educators. 


As we embark on another year of work together, please frequent our website at for the latest, up-to-date information, including our bell schedule, Calendar of Events, California Common Core links, and much more.  Do not hesitate to contact me with any questions, comments, and/or ideas.   My door is always open, and you can reach me anytime via email at  I am looking forward to another collaborative year packed with learning, discovery, and achievement.  By working together, we can ensure that all Charnock Road students are on a path toward college, careers, and civic life.
