I am honored to be Phelan Elementary School’s Principal. We are an extremely caring community of adults who passionately strive to embrace student learning as our number one priority. We practice our ABCs daily by Acting RESPECTFULLY, Being RESPONSIBLE, and Creating a SAFE environment. Phelan Elementary is a P.B.I.S. (Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports) school in a P.B.I.S. district, and these school-wide expectations are our first tier in our P.B.I.S. efforts. P.B.I.S. at Phelan means - ALL adults focusing on OUR adult behavior to maximize the effect of OUR teaching on all of OUR students. We use Restorative Practices to restore harm when behaviors are inconsistent with and/or severely transgress the core values of Respect, Responsibility, and Safety. We look forward to giving ALL Falcons a SAFE learning environment where they will be challenged, be allowed to make mistakes, and grow into the best version of themselves they can possibly be. Our Teachers and Staff are extraordinary educators who have an incredible sense of Falcon Pride, and I am proud to be part of such a caring and hard-working team that loves kids. Thank you for entrusting us with your most valuable treasure/s. Together, we embrace the Snowline motto, “Learning for all, whatever it takes!”
