Hello and welcome to Winchester Elementary School. We are 1 of 240 schools, colleges and other organizations within the “No Excuses University” network. I am proud to be part of a school that's primary focus /plan is the premise that all students should be given the necessary tools and motivation to attend a college or university.
Winchester Elementary has an exemplary teaching staff that promotes the best in every child. We hold high standards in both academics and character building for every student. We want all of our students to emulate the "Triple Be's" Be Responsible, Be Respectful and Be Safe!
Through one of our many LCAP initiatives, Winchester is one of six schools who are piloting a schoolwide AVID Elementary focus. All students have a communication folder/binder where information/work is being kept and viewed on a daily basis with parents to support the idea that "College is not the dream, it's the plan!"
I encourage our Parents to become volunteers and be part of the Winchester spirit! There are many service learning programs we offer including: Action Teams for Partnerships (ATP), English Language Advisory Committee (ELAC), Parent University and School Site Council (SSC). If you have any questions, please see me each morning when the campus opens at the front gate. I am there every day welcoming our students or at the end of the day when our students leave. I look forward to a successful and wonderful 2016-2017 school year.
