Hello Cypress Cubs,

First and foremost let me say how honored I am to be the principal of Cypress Elementary School.  Before coming to Covina-Valley, I spent nine years as a principal in central Orange County and 10 years as a classroom teacher before that. I believe that embracing a growth mindset, positive energy, and a dedication to developing a student-focused environment are the keys to a successful school.

The 2020 - 2021 school year is going to be different from any other school year we have ever had.  Although we are eager to have our students back on campus, we will begin the school year on distance learning.  We are excited to share the responsibility of educating your children and look forward to a strong partnership with you throughout the school year.

Our theme for this school year is "We'll be there for you". We understand that these are stressful times, and we want our families and students to know that we will be there for them.  Our school office is open every day from 7:30 - 3:30 to answer any questions that you have.  I am also on campus almost every day. Please feel free to call or come in to meet with me for anything you may need.

Academic achievement is still our focus for every student.  Students are expected to attend school online every day and to complete all assignments.

Cypress is proud to be a one to one device school, providing, Lenovos for all of our students from Transitional Kindergarten through fifth grade. 

Cypress School takes PRIDE in developing a community of respectful, responsible, and successful citizens.  PRIDE, stands for our core character traits of Purpose, Respect, Individual responsibility, Do the right thing, and always Expect excellence.

I feel so fortunate to work with such a wonderful staff, amazing students, and supportive families. I am looking forward to an exciting school year!
