Our School

      Welcome to Del Amo Elementary School for the 2018-19 school year.  My name is Linda Sakurai and I have been given the wonderful opportunity to serve as your Principal.  Del Amo has a tradition of excellence and I am very grateful to be the proud Principal here. I look forward to continuing with what we started last year with the returning students and families.  I look forward to meeting and working closely with those of you who are new to Del Amo. I want to ensure that we provide an excellent education for all of our students.

As a Local District South school, our goal is for 100% Graduation. To get there our objectives are:

*Build a Solid Foundation for Early Learners-providing our youngest learners with a quality start.

*Proficiency for All-equitable access to high-quality curriculum and instruction in every classroom, every day.

*100% Attendance-attendance and enrollment matters

*Parent, Community and Student Engagement-engagement and partnerships to prepare students for college, career and civic life

*School Safety-safe learning environments that foster success

Both the school and home share the responsibility of educating our children.  The Del Amo staff and I will build a school environment that is welcoming to both students and families.  Your active involvement and participation in your child’s education is important and contributes to making the school year successful for our students.  You are invited to attend, visit, and participate in School Advisory Council Meetings (SSC, ELAC) Parent Education classes/workshops, Parent-Teacher Conferences, Back to School Night, Open House and other special school events.  These activities provide opportunities for meaningful communication between you and the school, and they serve to update you on the role you can play in your child’s education.  As Principal, please know that the staff and I will create a school culture and atmosphere that welcomes students and families.  I want you to feel at home on our beautiful campus.

In this partnership in growth and learning, I hope to continue to serve and support you by fostering an environment that embraces diversity and celebrates all cultures.  I look forward to working along with all of you and seeing the success of all of our students as they begin their journey to college and career readiness!
