Principal's Message

Dear La Paloma Families,
I am delighted and honored to serve as the Principal at La Paloma Elementary School. I am passionate about our mission and vision and believe in collaboration, communication and building relationships with all stakeholders. Our goal is to create a positive learning environment where all students feel safe and have the resources they need to be successful. I am committed to working with the staff, teachers, parents and students to provide safe, supportive, innovative and engaging learning opportunities where students will grow as individuals, academically, and prepare them with the skills they need as lifelong learners and leaders.

At La Paloma Elementary School, we nurture leadership, innovation, and intellectual curiosity to prepare each student to embrace lifelong learning. We are a vibrant and diverse school community that cares deeply about children, and who they grow up to be in the world. Our talented faculty and staff serve as mentors, facilitators, and coaches. They challenge students to explore, read, imagine, write, create, and compute so that they have the breadth and depth of experience to become confident and informed scholars and leaders. We challenge and encourage students to make connections between their studies and the real world. We are committed to excellence and goodness in everything we do.

I look forward to the 2022-2023 school year with great enthusiasm and excitement! I am passionate about education, and committed to providing each and every student the essential building blocks to grow, thrive, and find their individual voice. This is what I look forward to when I wake up each morning! I am eager to meet you and work in collaboration to inspire greatness in our children.
Most sincerely,
Claudia D’Leon
