Anna P. Chavez

I am so excited to be your Principal! 

As a former student here at Alameda, and a community member- it is my goal to continue to provide our students with:

Highly effective instructional strategies

and

Positive social experiences that will teach our students how to be responsible here at school and in our community!

Fall90 day plan

Teachers will collaborate, implement, and adjust data driven small group instruction for at least two-thirds of the ELA and MATH daily instruction time, to increase student gradual release of skills practice in the time after first teach lessons have been given

All teachers will record attendance and initiate attendance team plan procedures on time. Alameda ES leadership/admin will increase the frequency of community feedback requests and will celebrate good and improved attendance school wide 

Spring 90 day plan

Teachers are currently working on a root cause analysis to determine our spring 90 day plan. 

In our early stages of this process, we recognize that we would like to explore:

more student conferencing between the teacher and student in regards to goal setting for assessments and reviewing needs

school assemblies to recognize students who are doing well academically and socially

Alameda Values (Expected Behaviors)

Our Hands are for working and helping

Our Words are kind and true

If you see something, say something

Please help your student to understand what their behaviors should be when they are at school. Anytime we need to talk with a student regarding their behavior- Principal and Teacher will communicate with you! 

Families are our biggest support when it comes to how students act. These are the behaviors I support the most with: 

Hitting has an automatic consequence of loss of recess for a reteach with the teacher or principal, or In School Suspension with the Principal

School Vandalism in the restrooms, classrooms, or campus may result in limited access in those area, restitution (payment for repair), and a conference with the students, Family, and Principal

Defiance in Class with Teachers and Staff will result in a conference with student, teacher, and principal, possibly counselor

FAMILY/TEACHER CONFERENCES

Families have an opportunity to talk exclusively with teachers on their student's progress in class in relation to their academic learning and possible behavioral needs.
