Principal's Message

Welcome to La Cañada Elementary School
I am delighted to extend a warm and heartfelt welcome to all students, parents, staff, and community members to our esteemed institution. At La Cañada Elementary School, we believe in fostering a nurturing and inclusive environment that promotes academic excellence, character development, and a love for lifelong learning.
As the principal of this remarkable school, I am committed to providing every student with an exceptional educational experience. Our dedicated team of educators is passionate about creating engaging and dynamic learning opportunities that cater to the unique needs and talents of each child. We strive to empower our students to become critical thinkers, problem solvers, and responsible global citizens who contribute positively to society.
Our curriculum is designed to inspire curiosity, ignite imagination, and cultivate a deep understanding of core subjects. We are proud to offer a wide range of academic programs, including STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics), language arts, social sciences, physical education, and fine arts. Through our comprehensive and balanced approach, we aim to foster creativity, collaboration, and a lifelong love for learning.
At La Cañada Elementary, we strongly believe in the power of a strong home-school partnership. We encourage parents and families to actively participate in their child's education, as your involvement plays a pivotal role in their success. Together, we can create a supportive and enriching educational journey for our students, where they can thrive both academically and socially.
In addition to our rigorous academic program, we offer a variety of extracurricular activities and clubs that allow students to explore their interests and develop their talents outside the classroom. Whether it's participating in sports teams, joining the school band, engaging in community service projects, or expressing themselves through the arts, our students have ample opportunities to pursue their passions and discover their true potential.
As you navigate through our website, you will find valuable information about our school's mission, vision, policies, and programs. It is my hope that this platform serves as a helpful resource for all members of our school community.
I am excited to embark on this journey together with you and look forward to celebrating the achievements and growth of our students. Let us work hand in hand to create a vibrant, inclusive, and inspiring learning community at La Cañada Elementary School.
Once again, welcome to our school! Together, we will shape a brighter future for our students.
Warm regards,
Kelly Duncan
