Welcome Message from Principal

Dear  Mount Vernon Parents and Guardians,


Welcome to the 2019-20 school year.  I am so excited to continue as principal for the Home of the Mustangs.  This summer a team attended International Baccalaureate (IB) Training, Primary Years Program.  The team included: Ms. Brown, our board member; Mr. Caballero, Assistant Superintendent; Mrs. Echeverria, Assistant Principal, and myself.  On August 9th, We held an inservice to our new and returning teachers to share our learning. We also presented at the August 13th board meeting to share our vision and next steps for Mount Vernon.  We will share our learning and vision with our community at our Back to School Night on September 4th.


Last year we began to develop systems to ensure student safety across our campus.   This year, our focus will be on instruction and strengthening the culture of our school.  As an IB world school we have integrated the IB Learner Profile throughout all levels of our school.  We are dedicated to developing inquiring, knowledgeable, and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect.  Our students become bilingual, multi-skilled, active, and compassionate lifelong learners who are prepared for success in all of their endeavors.” If you would like to learn more about IB, visit ibo.org


We look forward to a successful academic year here at Mount Vernon where decisions are made in the best interest of our students. Go Mustangs!
