Bay Laurel Elementary places an emphasis on celebrating students for exemplifying positive character traits. Each month, our Dolphin community selects a trait we are specifically looking for in the classroom and out on the playground. October's character trait is Empathy. Students will place on emphasis on learning about people from different backgrounds and cultures as well as showing concern and care for others.
It is the philosophy of the Bay Laurel staff and parents that children are unique in their needs, ability to learn, and the contributions they can make to the school and community. We are committed to providing each child with an educationally challenging experience that best promotes intellectual, social, and emotional development. We will empower each child to achieve academic excellence in an emotionally safe environment which attends to individual needs while also encouraging productive collaboration. In order for optimal learning and growth to occur, we will encourage students to assume greater responsibility for their learning and for themselves under the guidance of dedicated teachers and parents.
Greetings Bay Laurel community! I am thrilled to be serving in my second year as your principal for the 2016-17 school year. I've had the pleasure of being a part of the Las Virgenes School District since I was five years old as a student over at White Oak Elementary. It is a joy to serve you and LVUSD as we all continue to foster a district wide commitment to universal student achievement.
