Principal's Message

Welcome to the 2016-2017 school year! We are very excited about our progress last year in reading and math, and we look forward to more academic achievements this year. We had a very successful Meet the Teacher night on August 3rd, 2016 where I met many new and continuing families to Alta Vista. I look forward to our year together. We will have monthly coffee chats, where parents can come hear what's happening at Alta Vista if you were unable to attend our Meet the Teacher event. 

Our first day of school was Monday, August 8, 2016. School begins promptly at 8:15 a.m. Parents may walk their students on campus only after signing in through our front office and receiving a visitor pass.

Additionally, I would like to introduce the new teachers to Alta Vista: first grade, Ms. Tolton; second grade, Ms. Stubblefield;  third grade, Ms. Morales Banderas Bella, Ms. Collins, and Ms Errington; fourth grade, Ms. Tadano and Ms. Muoio; fifth grade, Ms. Meek; sixth grade, Ms. Baker and Ms. Karbginsky; music and art, Ms. Aron; physical education, Mr. Beacom; special education, Ms. Kennedy and Mr. White. 

We are very excited for the new school year! If you have any questions, please contact me at
