A Message from the Principal

Jacqueline Arias-Gonzalez, Principal

Dear Parents,

Welcome to Spanish Lake Elementary School. Once again we are proud to be an “A” school. Our goal at this school is to provide an outstanding education for all students. The school’s philosophy is to challenge the students in all subject areas. It is extremely important to establish cooperative effort between your home and our school to accomplish this challenge.

As the parent, you play a vital role in the education of your child. Frequent communication between home and school will improve the quality of education we provide to increase your child’s opportunities to learn. Feel free to contact the teacher if a problem arises that you do not understand.

In order for our school and student body to function successfully, basic rules and policies must be understood and followed. This handbook is designed to provide this information so that students may have a successful school year.

We look forward to working with you in making Spanish Lake Elementary School a school of excellence and having a wonderful and successful year.

Jacqueline Arias-Gonzalez
