Dear Sierra Parents and Guardians,

    Welcome to Sierra Elementary School…Home of the Roadrunners!  As the principal at Sierra ES, it is my privilege and honor to be here at Sierra. I look forward to an exciting year working with you, our students, families, professional staff, and community friends!

    Our teachers and support staff are dedicated to working together collaboratively to maintain a safe and orderly learning environment while providing a strong, educational foundation geared to equip our students with 21st Century skills—critical thinking, communication, collaboration and creativity—to prepare them for college and career success.

    Please join us in our work towards achieving this goal. You can contribute in many ways:

    • Ensure that your child is well rested, arrives to school on time and attends school each day.
    • Support our BEST behavior expectations…Be safe, Be respectful, Be responsible!
    • Monitor your child’s homework.
    • Communicate with your child’s teacher regularly.
    • Volunteer at Sierra!

    We welcome and encourage parent involvement at Sierra ES. I invite you to join us at our School Site Council (SSC), English Learner Advisory Council (ELAC) and Parent/Teacher Organization (PTO) meetings. There are also opportunities for you volunteer at Sierra ES in the classrooms and at special events and activities.   

    Working together, I anticipate a year of exceptional learning opportunities and academic achievement for all of our students!  I look forward to your support in making this Sierra’s best year ever!

    Warm regards,

    Janice Forte-Watson
