School Expectations
At Del Mar Elementary School, we have high expectations for each one of our scholars. We unwaveringly believe that if students work hard and to their potential, they can become academically successful. It is our commitment to provide our scholars with everything necessary, academically and socially, to become successful in middle school, high school and, ultimately, college, if that is their choice. This commitment demands a strong partnership with parents. The teachers and staff members of Del Mar will do everything possible to ensure our scholars will be successful. For this challenge, we also need the full and dedicated support of our school families.

Principal's Message

Second Principal's Message of the 2019/20 School Year!
October 8th, 2019
Happy 34th Day of School!
Time is flying!  The cool feel of Fall mornings are upon as we move through the daily journey of this place we call school, this place we call home, this place we call family. So glad we are all on this great adventure together!
So far we have experienced our Back To School Picnic, Book Fair, and Bike To School Day!
Our Del Mar Safety Patrol is visibly assisting and protecting our students each morning!  They are the leaders of the future!
The Del Mar Home and School Club is humming along with new as well as long time members! They are working hard to support all of our needs as well as to provide us all with a multitude of multi-cultural experiences!!!
Upcoming Del Mar events include this week's STEAM=Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math Night! I hope you will be able to join us for a unique evening of family play time as you conquer interesting challenges together!  Thursday, 5:45-7:30! Pizza slices at 5:45 and the beginning of the event at 6:00!.
The next event will be our annual Dia De Los Muertos family gathering! This will take place on October 24th from 5:30-7:30. This will be a marvelous cultural event that combines our teachers leading learning activities with native dancers, and incredible authentic food! 
Also of importance, is attendance!!! Such a big part of student success is based upon attendance! Being at school each day =Student Success! There are many losses when a student misses even a day of instruction. Your student loses learning and your school loses $55.00 each day. We keep the doors open, the learning happening, and the lights on, with the funding we receive for attendance. We are able to offer extra music, P.E, and art, as well as an awesome education, through the funds we receive for each day. Recently we had a day of 27 absences. This meant a loss of $1,430.00 that would have been used to support learning all across our school. I really understand that illness plays a part in this......However, you can help in the following ways:
*If your child does not have a fever and feels a bit under the weather, please send them to school.
*If your child has an appointment during school hours, please bring them to school before their appointment or after their appointment. We will still receive credit this way!
*Please try to take your vacations in alignment with the school's holiday schedule. If you are going on vacation during a school day, bring your child to school while you pack! We will still get credit!!!
Thank you for reading this! We want to do our very best for your student! Please be a part of our Attendance Team by ensuring that your student is here everyday when they are not ill!!!
¡Estamos todos juntos en este viaje que llamamos escuela!  Estar en la escuela todos los días = ¡Éxito estudiantil! Hay muchas pérdidas cuando un estudiante pierde incluso un día de instrucción. Su estudiante pierde el aprendizaje y su escuela pierde $ 55.00 cada día. Mantenemos las puertas abiertas, el aprendizaje y las luces encendidas, con los fondos que recibimos para asistir. Podemos ofrecer música adicional, educación física y arte, así como una educación increíble, a través de los fondos que recibimos para cada día. Hoy tenemos 27 ausencias. Esto significa una pérdida de $ 1,430.00 que se hubiera utilizado para apoyar el aprendizaje en toda nuestra escuela. Realmente entiendo que la enfermedad juega un papel en esto ... Sin embargo, puede ayudar de las siguientes maneras: * Si su hijo no tiene fiebre y se siente un poco mal, envíelo a la escuela. * Si su hijo tiene una cita durante el horario escolar, tráigalo a la escuela antes de su cita o después de su cita. ¡Seguiremos recibiendo crédito de esta manera! * Por favor, trate de tomar sus vacaciones en línea con el horario de vacaciones de la escuela. Si se va de vacaciones durante un día escolar, ¡traiga a su hijo a la escuela mientras hace las maletas! ¡Todavía obtendremos crédito! ¡Gracias por leer esto! ¡Queremos hacer lo mejor para su estudiante! ¡Sea parte de nuestro equipo de asistencia asegurándose de que su estudiante esté aquí todos los días y que no esté enfermo!
