Principal's Message

Greetings Wagon Wheel Community,

Welcome to our 2019-2020 school year!  At Wagon Wheel Elementary, we believe in the three R's:  Rigor, Relevance & Relationships.  We believe it is essential to plan rigorous first instruction lessons, design projects that are relevant, and promote a safe environment where students, staff, and parents build positive relationships in order to increase student achievement.  

As a team, we act on these beliefs by engaging in Professional Learning Communities (PLCs) using data to make informed decisions about student learning and by providing Multi-Tiered Systems of Support (MTSS).  This signature practice was recently recognized by the California Department of Education; and Wagon Wheel is extraordinarily proud to be honored as a 2018 California Distinguished School.  Wagon Wheel also has been recognized by the California PBIS Coalition for our leading role in providing school-wide Positive Behavior Intervention Supports and leading CUSD schools with a distinguished Gold PBIS Implementation Award for 2018.  In addition to these recent accolades, Wagon Wheel is also proud to have achieved the highest proficient and above spring 2019 math percentages in all CUSD elementary schools.

Our mission: Transforming the next generation of empowered students by fostering innovation and creating a culture of learning shapes our continued collaboration with all stakeholders - students, staff, and parents.   We encourage all parents to volunteer, join PTA, or participate in School Site Council.  As a community, I am confident that we will partner together to support the academic, personal, and social growth of all our students. 

I look forward to meeting all of our students and parents on the first day of school as we kick-off the 2019-2020 school year.  Go-o-o-o-o-o Mustangs!

Respectfully yours,

Jean Grabowski
