Principal’s Message

Dear Acacia Families,

 

I am very excited to welcome you to the 2018-2019 school year! The past three years have been marked by academic excellence and student success. I know our students will continue to accomplish great things and so I am looking forward to another amazing school year. Please help me give a warm welcome to new staff: Mrs. Rebecca Munson will be teaching 2nd grade and comes to us from Fisler School with a wealth of knowledge and experience and our new psychologist is Anne Rugani. I am also happy to announce Acacia School will have a part time Assistant Principal, Rebecca Acosta, Ed.D, here to help support our vision and mission and be a wonderful addition to our staff.

Our mission at Acacia is to provide an education of the highest quality, blending the resources of the home, school, and community. We are committed to empowering students to reach their full potential with rigorous academic standards. We develop confident children who can collaborate, create, and communicate in a constantly evolving world. We recognize that we cannot accomplish this without parental support. Parents, you have been true partners in your child’s education and for that we are grateful! We rely on you to support our school and provide the parental help necessary to provide an environment for children conducive to academic, personal, social, and emotional success. 

As the year moves on, I am eager to get to know you and your child, and establishing a relationship grounded on the belief that education creates opportunities for students to achieve their highest potential so they can become the best versions of themselves. Thank you for joining us on the journey to foster the social, emotional, and educational growth our students need to be outstanding and productive members of society.           

Below, you will find a list of parent tips to assist with navigating school.  You can also find helpful information on our website as well as in our Student Handbook that is posted on our website.  Our school calendar, lunch menu, schedule of upcoming events, and more are available on our website http://www.acacia.fullertonsd.org. Please visit the website often for important and updated information.

In addition, I will send out a Connect Ed phone message and email to all Acacia families each Sunday evening at 6:00pm with information about the upcoming week.  Our school office is open Monday – Friday, 7:30-4:00.  The phone number is (714) 447-7700.  Please do not hesitate to contact the school office or me with any questions.

Please watch for important updates from The Acacia Partnership, which includes the PTA and The Acacia Elementary School Foundation, working together for our school.  There are some exciting upcoming events planned.  Also, watch for how you can join The Acacia Partnership.  Proceeds raised go directly to providing a more enriching and exciting educational experience for your children at Acacia School.  For more information, please visit The Acacia Partnership at http://www.theacaciapartnership.org.

Parent Tips

The following Parent Tips are meant to encourage a safe and orderly environment.  We hope you find them helpful.

General:

  • We welcome parents visiting our school.  Please always sign in and get a visitor’s sticker in our office, even if you are just dropping off something.
  • After the first day of school, to avoid distractions to the children, we ask that you move to the front of the school away from the classrooms in the morning at 8:00am when children start instruction.  At the end of the day, we ask that you wait until 2:25pm to enter school grounds on the playground side and wait until 12:30pm on Wednesdays.
  • For safety and liability, younger siblings of students are not allowed on the play equipment during the school day.
  • Dogs are never allowed on school grounds.  This is a city and county law.  Additionally, we have children who are highly allergic to dogs and some who are very afraid of them.

Parking/Pick-up and Drop-off Procedures

  • Please do not ever leave your car unattended in the parking lot along the red curb.  This is a drive-through pick up and drop off area only.
  • There is very little parking in our parking lot.  It is best to find parking on one of the side streets when visiting the school.
  • There is no parking at any time on the east side of Acacia in front of our school.  From Dorothy to the first driveway, it is a right hand turn lane into the school.  After the first driveway, it is all red.  Parents can be ticketed if they park along Acacia in the red zone.
  • To drop off or pick up your child, pull into the parking lot and pull as far forward as possible.  We will assist children getting into or out of vehicles.  Children are loaded into cars and unloaded by the flagpole or further to the front of the car line.
  • For drop off, make sure children are prepared to exit the car quickly and for safety always have them exit from the right side of the car (not the driver’s side).

Serving as principal of Acacia is an honor. I thank you in advance for your support and I look forward to working together towards a common goal of providing excellence in education for our students.

 

Sincerely,

Elizabeth Leon

Principal
