Principal's Corner

Happy New Year!

Dear Families and Community,

I love this time of year. It is a time for reflection of the past and looking forward to the future. As I look back, I must  say it is hard to believe how quickly the new year has come upon us. Although I am anticipating what the remaining of our school year has in store, I would like to take a moment to thank each of you for the many ways you have contributed to our school since the beginning of the 2017-2018 school year:

  • Volunteering in our classrooms

  • Helping create and maintain wonderful bulletin boards in our office, cafeteria and hallways

  • Joining our PTO

  • Volunteering for school sponsored events (Book Fair, Winter Program, Family Nights, Fundraisers, Light’s Out After Dark)

  • Donating classroom materials for teachers

  • Communicating concerns, needs or good news with me and our staff

  • Participating in the “Grand Event” by bringing lunch to your child or grandchild

  • Giving words of encouragement to our staff

  • Participating in fundraisers such as Kiwanis-Walk-a-Thon, Cystic Fibrosis Great Strides Walk, Believe,  Kindness Jewelry, and Smencil sales

  • Volunteering to give input for School Site Council, Superintendent’s Council and PTO

  • Taking the time to smile and build up all of our students with encouraging words


As I reviewed photos taken from the beginning of the year, my first thought was that many of our activities would not have happened without your participation. Thank you so much for contributing your time and talents to the Pierce community. Your efforts play an important role in the academic success of our students.


As our new year begins, I am enthusiastic about the successes the remainder of the year will bring. If you have any suggestions or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out to me at tfreese@ssusd.org or 760-499-1670.


Let’s move forward together.



Thank you for your support,

Traci Freese

Principal
