Principal's Message

Welcome to our Sanchez Elementary site!


Sanchez students are our number one priority. We work as a community of staff and parents to provide high academic and social-emotional standards, a community of safety and caring, a sense of compassion, engagement, leadership and personal success for every individual student.


Our world is continually changing. We provide the tools to ensure all students have the confidence and desire to go to college. We pride ourselves in being an AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination) Certified School. Our students in Kindergarten through 5th grades are given tools so that they learn how to be organized and to think critically. Our 3rd through 5th grade students are provided the tools to keep track of their daily homework, to take notes and organize them so that they can access them to support their learning. Students in 3rd through 5th grades are also provided with tours of college and university campuses. Most importantly, all our students are provided opportunities to think critically and speak using academic vocabulary to ensure that they are provided with a rigorous curriculum that is appropriate for this generation of learners. Our students leave Sanchez prepared to embrace their next level of learning with the tools and confidence necessary to be successful.  


Our talented teachers and staff hold students to high academic standards as well as help them develop the growth mindsets and habits of scholars so that they can be successful both academically and socially.


Our school provides various opportunities for students to develop their leadership skills. Students receive training in public speaking, poise and confidence in their classrooms as well as through becoming members of our Associated Student Body, our Junior Playground Coaches, the Sanchez Reading Club and the Sanchez Robotics Club. Through their training in these groups, students begin to experience themselves as leaders and are able to see their personal power and continue to make a positive impact in our world.

Every child deserves a school that prepares them for a great future. Through their experience at Sanchez they will learn responsibility, respect, leadership, personal value, kindness as well as high academic standards that will allow them to have the futures they deserve!

We're looking forward to an exciting 2019-2020 school year!
