Principal's Message

Dear Linda Vista Families,

Welcome Back!

I hope you are enjoying a wonderful summer. I also hope you are relaxed, recharged and ready to start a new school year. I am so delighted that you are part of our amazing learning community. I welcome and value your positive energy and dedication to excellence in education, and I look forward to working with you and your children. As we head into our second year as an authorized International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme School I share your excitement about the opportunities our students have before them.  Together we will continue our journey of inquiry as we do our part to make this world a better place.

All signs point to another incredible and productive school year. Our skilled and devoted staff is already planning and preparing for your child(ren). Our enthusiastic office team is registering new families, ordering needed materials and updating student files. Our hard working and conscientious custodians have spent the entire summer thoroughly cleaning the facility. And, our much-appreciated PTA is gearing up to welcome families, provide volunteer opportunities, and offer other exciting events and programs. We are indeed a joyous and caring community with the common goals of nurturing responsible, caring students and promoting high-level learning.

Each year brings positive change. This year we are excited to add Transitional Kindergarten to our school!  Students as young as 4 years old will be joining our learning community. Transitional Kindergarten (TK) bridges the path between preschool and Kindergarten and gives students the gift of time that will help them build a strong foundation for future school success. It blends social and emotional experiences with academic learning, so that students not only learn essential pre-literacy, pre-math, and other cognitive skills, but also develop social and self-regulation skills needed to succeed in school and life. Young students enrolled in TK at Linda Vista also have early exposure to the International Baccalaureate Units of Study that will be part of their educational journey here at Linda Vista.

Thank you to all who are helping prepare for the new school year. Your commitment to ensuring that Linda Vista remains a celebrated and successful school is awe-inspiring. I eagerly look forward to greeting students and families again. It remains an honor and privilege to serve as your principal.  Please stop by and say hello. Together, I know we will make this school year one of growth and achievement for all children.

Warmest Regards,          

Shannon Wyatt
